Setup as below:

Exposure: 0.004 sec (1/250)
Aperture: f/8
Focal Length: 17 mm
ISO Speed: 100

Still reckon the cloud details is still lack of details.....
Its a single shot HDR?

It should be a single shot tonemapped. From the pic, the there is strong sun from behind the cam, but the sky on top of is full of dark cloud.....is that why the DR is not very wide and a single RAW can cover....nicely done however.:)

Hi espion, actually taken 3 shots with different exposure, -2/0/+1. and later combine it with using trial photomatix s/w. :)

Yeah looks like it.
hi fi5hbone, thank you for viewing and comment. Cheers

Hi lastboltnut, may you explain by the meaning of 'single shot tonemapped'?

Hi JacePhoto, thank you!

Hi, since its multiple shots, then its not single shot tonemapped, its really HDR:) May I know how you derived at using -2/0/+1 exposure? Why not just bracket it with -2/0/+2?

Now I can comment a little. First Photomatix have done well for moving objects (or did u do a bit of repair job in PP?). Second there is no obvious haloing, which is again good. The big problem is the sky. It is somehow inconsistent with rest of the picture.

Can you share your setting on Photomatix, if you can remember it, esp the strength and the light smoothing parameters.

espion, I guess that the strength is quite high, as although the shadow looks quite harsh, but the brightness diff doesn't show, but again, no haloing....then the light smoothening, I think it is not the "smoothest" (the extreme right, can't remember 3 or 4) as the lighting on the pagoda is not very smooth, especially on the taper portion of the pagoda. But then again, just guessing, my guess about sunny sky at the back and cloudy sky in font is wrong though:bsmilie:

oppss...typo error...should be -2/0/+2 setting in AEB. :embrass: sorry!

hi espion, did fine tweaking @ Photomatix. strength 90/ light smoothing Very High/ Luminosity -3/ Temp 2 are the main parameters used...hope it is ok for u. :)

no, no, ok or not ok for me is irrelevant.

u ask for comments, and I am trying to understand why your sky is what it is, before I comment anything definitive.

Do u feel/think the sky is ok?

:sweat:...relax...

i do not feel the sky is ok and that is what i mentioned earlier because normally HDR's sky or cloud looks better with loads of detail....

what do you think?

Hi, don't my some suggestions..just regarding the sky bits.. the rest is beautiful as can be.

Was it rather windy up above when the picture was taken? If the clouds are shifting fast, that maybe the cause. Especially fast moving low clouds. Coupling multiple exposure setting to your AEB does shorten the interval between the 3 images.

Hi jawzsg, actually it is not too windy that day and the cloud formation is not too much.

May i know how to 'coupling multiple exposure setting' as you mentioned? Care to share?

Hi soulFLY, what is the "temp 2" setting? My version of Photomatix doesn't have this parameters...
Hi lastbolnut, i am using photomatrix pro3.0. as for the temp 2 setting is actually 'temperature' setting under 'color' after tone mapping in details enhancer....

i set the temparature value to 2.

Looks very CG to me. But I love the details and colors.

If you ask me, it is a very nice picture, but it is not a photograph anymore though.

Art and beauty is subjective. And for this case, I like this art. :)
