    I was out hiking yesterday and found this guy! I'm pleased that it came out with his tongue out but the exposure(?) is awful! Can anyone help me fix it to make it look like a decent shot? Is it possible?

    My others came out well enough but without the tongue!

    Also, I took various shots of a landscape to try out HDR, how do I actually combine all 3 photos, in photoshop??

    I'm pretty new, thanks for the help

    I'm afraid this one's beyond saving it. You had your settings put to a too long exposure, now you got an overexposed photo with camera shake. Nothing can remedy that. Sorry. If this is the only photo you got ... well, bad luck.

    Well, you can't get rid of the camera shake, no matter what you do. And I think the OP is HAPPY about the tongue out in this one, and did NOT want it to be gone ;) . By the sound of the original post, he has more photos of this same snake but none of them with the tongue out. Which is why he wants to save THIS one! ;)

    My, my, my... you guys are sure a bunch of encouragers! For cryin' out loud, the guy asked for help. Not snotty sarcasm or smart comments.

    Whoa whoa, no need to be defensive. I'm just sayin, those are some pretty trippy colors. What LaPhoto said is correct. The photo is shaky and out of focus, and has a lot of highlight detail lost. There isn't much saving to be done. But gave it a shot anyways.

    Thanks gjtoth and general benson, i didn't realize it was blurry. I have a few others but this was the only one I had with its tongue out. Those remakes look pretty good except that I blurred the photo.

    I had my shots on AEB(?) bracketing to make sure they were exposed right.
    Anyone know how to form a HDR I have a few sets of pics I want to try it on.

    I think these were my best of the day...
