    Since the d40 does not offer bracketing, I have to change the exposure settings manually. I want to shoot some HDR photos. Do I change the shutter speed or do I change the apeture settings? or both?

    Thanks

    Change the shutter speed. By changing the aperture, you would also change the depth of field.

    Thanks, I was confused because I read in photomatix to shoot in aperture priority mode. I guess to change exposure and maintain the same DOF right?

    Exactly right... aperture priority mode keeps the same f/stops and DOF. You got it.

    I like...I think it's really better when an HDR image moves into the surreal realm. Nice work.

    have a good one

    Just use the search function of this forum or Google it!! You'll find thousands of links explaining what HDR is.
