    colors are great but the photos seem to be a bit blurry or out of focus to me

    What exactly is HDR? I've never heard of it until recently

    Both of them seem soft. Great colors, but soft.

    HDR means High Dynamic Range. Its basically merging multiple exposures of a shot usuallly -2ev 0ev +2ev. Which is a underexposed shot a properly exposed shot and a over exposed shot to give more range in a photograph. Then its usually toned mapped to give it the unique look

    Yea they seem a bit blurry. Try and re-align the exposures in your HDR software.

    It wasn't the software. I had my ghetto tripod on the hood of my car taking pictures on back/country roads. I think the engine shake and the shutter release was enough to throw it off....Sux....I'm in need of a good tripod, any ideas? I don't really wanna spend more than $150-175...

    I just got this one. It is very sturdy and easy to use. The top is a little stiff, but I think it will loosen up:

    Lyncca...thanx for the info! I think that would be a great tripod...But it's on some kinda back-order with every site I checked! I want something compact so I can run with it and that one would be perfect. I guess I can check locally and see what's around.
