    gave it a try last week...hand held this shot. I see a tripod is needed for sharper pics...but this one was ok. Let me have your comments...or tips!!

    What HDR editor you use? There's a little bit halo (lighter sky) near roof of the building, and (this is pretty personal) I would make that cloud lighter.
    Anyway, very nice HDR, not too over saturated, so colors are good and looks right.

    HDR is such a great artistic option. This prob needs much work...but as is after Photomatix is through with it.

    In the first set of pictures, did you do any burning around the clouds? It looks like that's what that dark blob is.. kind of distracting. The rest just looks more saturated.

    Can you "HDR" a photograph in Photomatix with only one image? I thought you needed to blend multiple, bracketed exposures..

    It cannot be done, I mean real HDR...result from one shot kinda tonemapped image, but who cares?

    Yes, Photomatix lets you do a sinlge photo. As you dont have the diff exposures, the effect is not the same as a true HDR. It looks just ok.
