    Hello every, I am new in this forum and here is my first post. I hope is in the right topic:er:

    Those were my first HDR I took back in 2008. I took them with my Nikon D300 with bracketing (7 frame and 0.33 ) ISO 200 f/11 1s

    I love them. I especially like #1, just one thing (though I totally deserve to be shot for saying this about an HDR...I think)...I think the deck of the boat came-out just a little too bright for my taste. I feel it's an odd place for my eye to focus, and that this image really benefits from the overall feel it gives.

    Here's what I mean (some very quick burning of highlights in PS at 35% exposure, low strength):

    In any case, these shots are freaking fantastic. I've learnt a bit myself just by looking at them and noting the settings you took them at. So, thanks! *tips hat*

    No worries! Sometimes it just takes another person to see it from a different perspective. I'm curious to know just where you took those shots. I'm actually at UBC right now, hence the curiosity.

    Edit: Oh, and by "deserve it" in brackets, I meant to be shot. Removing highlights from an image that was made to have a wider dynamic range can seem just a little crazy at first.

    I took those shots at about 15300-15900 River Road in Richmond ( No house in between ) It will be on your left hand side while you driving from 15000 River road. You will need a low tide to climb down. Good luck ;)

    I like how the water came out in the first one. Overall i like it the most. You did a good job HDR wise.

    Hey, welcome to the forum :)
    The last one is stunning! Love the composition and the atmosphere ;).

    I advice you to use an ISO of 100 for HDR, otherwise you could get lots of noise
