It looks like you did a good job of blending the 3, but this doesn't look like a real strong photo for an HDR. I think the final product looks a bit washed out too, not real vibrant like some HDR's look (maybe that's not what you were going for). If it were me, I would've shot from an angle that would allow more light to come through the underside of the bridge like the first arch, and got less of the trees but for what you're working with, it looks ok. What program are you using for this?

this was done on CS4 I believe, my friend is the one who actually did it as he has access to it at school and I haven't been able to. so he used CS4 lol I know how to do it as well. maybe I should have said that earlier? haha

I agree that its not the best picture to do it with, but it was last night that I was browsing the site looking at the HDR shots and wanting to see what one of my images would look like done in HDR haha

someone needs to post a tutorial on how to use photomatix. i never know what im adjusting and my HDRs never come out the way I hope they should. im always just guessing when im changing the settings because i have no idea what they and do whatever the preview tells me its doing is never what it comes out to in the end.
