    Can the HDR experts spot if I made any errors? Halo? Waves too white? Sea too bright? Rocky problems?

    poor thing...
    weather always a huge factor... can't be helped la...!

    See that's why we must have plan B for our outings portrait shooting hor?
    So far have been quite fortunate with the weather. Don't think a single Newbies Outing has been cancelled due to poor conditions... but can't keep pushing lady luck...!

    When it is raining heavily, what kind of themes can we explore har? Why let the weather spoil our shooting opportunities? There must be some thing we can divert to right?

    Ya...I know..for landscape..won't need such a big aperture..
    I am looking at using it for both landscape and indoor(like tight places) shooting.
    I am still considering...

    If you slap on ND110, will it get some kind of misty effect instead of rain?

    Hi dawngel, I'm planning to get Tokina 11-16 too. Hopefully can get the time to buy this week so can bring it for the outing this saturday.

    Artworkphoto is selling for $910, but I think it's only 1 shop year warranty.
    TK is selling for $940 last I checked, but I forgot to ask about the warranty.

Maybe the clouds above did cast a secondary source of omni light into the scene that justifies the level of lightness. Also, if the foreground rocks are that bright, shouldn't the rock slight above (middle of the image) be just a bright as well?

    WC, I dunno if I'm wrong or not, but I thought I spotted some halo-ing around the boundary between rocks and water. It looks like it may just be the waves though. However, there seems to be a discrepancy in brightness between rocks and water.

    Ahhahaaa... me then the noobie.

    Actually the rocks were totally in the dark (large mass of silhouette); the reason why I used HDR was because I wanted to bring the rocks back to light. Guess I overdid it. The white parts were actually darker and I tried making it darker (it's caused by waves but should still be darker) but still too bright.

    OK, try again next pic maybe tonight or tmr. Thanks a lot for the comments; failed badly. Haha.
