    sometimes, we are so awed when we have little knowledge. when you have the knowledge, a lot of things become less awesome.

    especially for 1 shot HDRs, it is nothing more than a gimmicky effect, can easily create actions to output such with the proper exposure in that sort of lighting.
    Alamak...take one of your old shots and repost here mah. You already have proven time and again already.

    done from 67 kb file that you uploaded.

    including uploading, my MIO internet lagging, from download up to now, since photoshop was open, 4 minutes.

    sorry, i don't know how to introduce photomatix color shifts, that is the only special thing that it can do that no one else can really do , short of using a color brush and splashing random yellow, green, etc randomly throughout the picture.

    This is quite funny. I encountered a similar situation before, where someone was challenged to solve a Rubik's cube and he was like, one of the puzzle experts from Australia (now setting up company based in S'pore).

    hi i used to use a lot of hdr, because DR of the k100d from pentax was pretty dismal, i think 7-8 stops max.

    now k20d has a 9-10? or 11? stop DR, so i do not need to resort to hdr so much, usually a simple gnd use will give me the details i need, so just use layers to blend exposures will be enough from a single shot.

    multiple exposure is to smooth out the water, because the only nd filter i have is a nd110.. 10 stops at night is asking for it....

    I stopped using Photomatix a loooong time ago. It was fun at first but the novelty wears off pretty quickly. Learn to understand light and shoot better. The results can be much more pleasing and satisfying. Cheers!

    Looking at some of the photos in the book, though it does help to show up lots more detail via HDR, but sometimes my brain tells me it cant be, something is not right. eg :

    A shot that looks at the "castle" look alike thingy at Fort Canning Hill, you know inside the passage way cant to that bright without using strobes in day light. The HDR photo show it is brighter than normal. So it looks odd to me.

    Another shot is taken inside a dinning hall with a window during day time, sun light not shinning throw the window. The chandeliers was on. HRDed room looks a stop brighter than the a normal photo and that there is less shadow (author commented the ceiling looks "cleaner") of the chandeliers cast on the ceiling. But my brain tells me the HDRed photo looks odd.

    Guess HDR is not for all occasion base on individual's perception of how lighting should look natural.
    photography makes one sees things from all angles.

    Isolated region of extreme brightness

    1) Spot meter the bright spot
    2) Set exposure with camera in "Manual Mode"
    3) Compose & shoot.
    4) +2EV & shoot.
    5) Repeat (4) until shadow area is properly exposed.
