    I don't have photomatrix so I'm trying to do this with PS Elements 5. Needless to say it didn't turn out very well.

    In a shot like this the temptation is to lighten everything to get the most detail especially in the shadows Also the edges that you are blending need to be very accurate - I see black edges on the right of the guitar that should not be there. I'd like to see the guitar with more contrast.

    By the way if this is a one RAW file, it's not really HDR.

    I kinda like it.
    It almost looks like a hand tinted print...kinda "Hyperreal."

    It's not just one. I had a total of 10 shots of which I think I used 5. Thanks for the comment... I'm looking at getting Photomatrix so hopefully this will look better next time.

    It's actually not THAT bad. photomatix will yield different results though.

    nice picture, i agree that the edge on the right side shouldnt be there, it makes the guitar pop a little too much, but other then that its gorgeous
