    Good afternoon everyone. Well i think its about time for me to stick my neck out and let everyone judge a piece of my work. This was done on my D90 with the bracketing feature on. 2 full stops in both directions, photoshop to combine the 3 NEF files, Photomatix Pro plugin for Photoshop and some very slight levels adjustments. I took this picture on my way home from work one day (hence the reason for the slightly dirty car). Please let me know what you think.

    LOL yeah i do agree. I kind of like it for this picture, but i do know that its usually overdone a lot in HDR pictures.

    Love the sky in the shot. The car on the other hand is a little over done (in other words looks fake) Over all great shot

    The tree to the far left has a ghost, at least it looks like it.

    The colors in the sky came out nice though, and you caught the reflection pretty well. Just go in there and create a little contrast through highlights and dark tones because right now the image is pushed pretty far up with the darkest color being a light gray on the tires :| Not much for dynamic range. Just darken the darks slightly and I think it will have a big improvement.

    Not really feeling the carlo xD Aka the car halo. I like the effect you achieved though, very futuristic stealth car lol

    Looks good. Fix the halo and you got yourself a nice one.

    +1. Beyond the Basics is not a critique or gallery forum section. :scratch:

    There is an HDR forum section that would get you more advice from other HDR affectionados. :thumbup:

    HDR Discussions
    High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI or just HDR) is a set of techniques that allows a greater dynamic range of luminances between light and dark areas of a scene.
