HDR photography with Samsung NX
The original material for the attached pictures were JPEGs taken using the Auto Exposure Bracketing feature (three frames: -3 EV, 0 EV, +3 EV).
Camera: Samsung NX11
Lens: 18-55 OIS II (at f/8, OIS deactivated)
Tripod kit: BENRO A300FBH1 (A-300EX + ball-head BH1)
Remote release: Samsung SR9NX01
The JPEGs were processed with Luminance HDR (formerly 'qtpfsgui'), from my point of view the best and most versatile HDR software on the market. It comes at no charge and is open source. It is available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.

After processing with Luminance HDR, the photos were levelled horizontally, trimmed and slightly USM-sharpened in Gimp.
