    What do you mean, "you can't see much hdr in it?"

    The only par of the picture standing out is the front fascia of the car

    I agree the first image is a good candidate for HDR. How did you make it? Did you use multiple exposures or multiple files of the same exposure?

    I think there's a lot more to be had. I've only just started doing HDR in my architectural shots. It's taking me a bit of time, but I think each try brings me closer to what I want.

    The scene did does not need to be HDR... you could of just used a single exposure.

    #1 image if you look at the top of that corner you can't deny the halo now don't tell me it's the sky because it's not, It does have some very dark areas.

    #2 looks like a standard image, why is the exif data removed on both images?:er:

    The front fascia of the car is kind of the whole point of the photo, so I guess I did my job!

    multiple exposures.

    I don't know what you mean by the second part... what more can be had?

    Isn't that usually the case? I used HDR to bring out a little more detail in the shadows and highlights.

    #1, I don't understand what you're talking about. I don't see any halo in that photo.

    #2, I am glad it looks like a standard image. That means I'm doing it correctly. I am guessing that the exif data is removed because of photomatix. That is the program that I use to create the HDR image.

    Oh, you could get a bunch more in the shadows... a bit of "pop." And the signage looks a bit muddy.

    And yeah... there's definitely a halo/glow goin' on around the top of the building. It's quite apparent.

    I kind of see the halo now. I must say that I dodged the heck out of the signs and the sky. I am sure that is why that halo is there and the signs look a bit muddy. I will spend more time on them next time :)

    I should have just layered and masked instead of dodging.

    Hmmm....

    Now remember, I'm new to this too.

    Did you dodge or burn the sky and signs?

    But why would you have to do either with an HDR image? Help me understand.
