    In between running around after a teething baby, i managed my first attempt at HDR. Its nothing special as i decided not to venture out in the pouring rain.. so... i did one of our dining room table :lol:

    Hope i have done it right!!

    I'm no expert on HDR and don't want to put anyone's attempt down but to me this looks like a standard shot of a table.

    how is it different from a standard shot?
    :confused:

    It's pretty hard to get HDR to look as good as it can when there aren't many dynamic ranges to get the exposure correct on.
    It works really well on sunny day in the shade. Getting the clouds/sky to be exposed well and then getting the exposure of the shadows to look good and have all the details. Just picking each section of the picture and getting it all exposed. Then you'll have a high dynamic range.

    I think it looks pretty good. I'm not sure if you're hitting the nail 100% on the head but the idea is to learn from the practice and if you're getting how to read the different levels of light and match up the shots so they overlap correctly... it's just some fine tuning until you can really get a nice HDR shot. Like mentioned before... if you can try where there is a HUGE range of tones you'll notice a bigger impact.

    HDR images make the biggest impact when others can tell what the main difference in. Outdoor pictures at dusk/dawn are great examples. City lights wont be blown out and everything else wont be too dark, something that a single photo cant accomplish. For these indoor type shots were the dynamic range isn't as easily noticeable you should post the best single picture you could take, and then the HDR image to show everyone what you have improved. From what I can tell the second shot is pretty good. The first one I dont really see where the range is.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone! Im finding this site very helpful and honest too.

    I have to say i have learnt an awful lot from here of the past few days and im looking forward to putting it all into practice. Iv only started with photgraphy over the past 3 months or so and this is my first SLR ever!!!

    Im self teaching at the mo as i have not got the time to spare for college untill my youngest is a little older, but i think im progressing alright. I still havnt a clue on alot of things. My OH bought me an infrared filter which i have alos been mucking about with today, and that, im struggling with!!! :grumpy:
