Hi antipropho, thank you so much for your encouraging comment :)

As my camera doesn't have auto bracketing features... thats why I always follow two ways while creating a HDR..

1) when I have enough time and my object is not moving, I try to take 5 different pics by using different shutter speed/exposure compensation(-2,-1,0,1,2) (in Aperture priority mode, as DOF should be same)

2) when I don't have enough time and when my object is moving, then I take a single picture in RAW mode. Later I create 5 different pictures(exposure compensation [-2,-1,0,1,2]) from a single RAW file using Nikon CaptureNX2.

correct me if I'm following wrong way... :P

For the above pic, I followed the 2nd way.. from a single RAW file...

hope it helps... waiting for some HDR images from you... :D

Hi antipropho. That was cool :)! Though I'm not expert in HDR photography but I think when you have water-fields-sky in your pic, you could get significant output/changes when you make them a HDR image.

anyway... nice 1st attempt :)! I'm also a beginner(HDR) like you..

keep shooting... :)

Hey Dreamer,

RAW only gives you 1 stop of exposure compensation each way, so the 2 extra images you generate from it will not add much to the dynamic range.

That being said, I think the HDR shots are stunning, yet too...fake/surreal for my liking. But that's just my taste :)

Hi Citruspers... I'm totally agree with you.. but what I should do If I want to take a moving object's HDR image??

I only found the RAW way trick... :(
