    Here's my first HDR attempt. I know it's not the greatest subject but I didn't feel like walking off my front steps. I just wanted some feedback on the technique. Thanks!

    i dunno... then it looks like you accidentally cropped off the houses or something.... i think i like it more with the cars... it makes it feel more peaceful for some reason, i think its the fact that they're parked and everything is quiet....

    Well, since your question has never been about composition but about the (for you) new technique of creating a HDR-photo, the replies should also not be about composition.

    I understand this is a first test photo only, and was never intended to become one of your personal masterpieces, just a photo with which to try out HDR.

    And I feel that you are getting there (from what little I know myself about that technique), both ground and sky look good (and one of the two would either be blown out in just ONE photo - or be too dark in just ONE photo) and all in all the photo does not have this cartoon strip quality which some HDRs have (though some carry that effect for a reason and the photo author WANTED them to look like that!). I guess you did not, you wanted to create a photo with a high dynamic range and still have it look like a normal photo, and this suggests that you are well on your way!

    Hmm... thanks.. I've been trying to use CS2 and haven't had any luck with anything looking decent.... Something is always under or over exposed....
