    I learnd about HDR the other day and decided to test it out at my usual macro hunting grounds.

    Some were 3 bracketed exposures and others 5

    Please let me know what you all think.....

    They are good, there is bags of detail, which is very good, but they both seem discoloured and slightly flat, I think the contrast could do with a slight boost. But what stands out at me most is the colours don't seem true to life, for instance the whole of the first image seems to have a 'purply' feel to it, this could be down to severe fringing, if so I recommend you use the de-fringing sliders in photoshop's camera raw before you put them through your hdr software. If the colour problems still exist, try using hue/saturation adjustment layers and/or variations via selections in order to do some colour correction.

    Hope that helped, and not bad at all for a first HDR, you have certainly achieved lots of detail =)

    Kind Regards

    Not bad. The horizon is totally crooked in the 2nd photo.

    Not a problem at all! I really like the way HDR looks and am trying to get good at it too. Hopefully it will work out lol
