Re: +1 Re: I love the lens

Thx timoat -- that wasn't on camera, I used SNS-HDR Lite (with a little bit of tweaking in Lightroom as well). It's free & extraordinarily simple to use, you just drag & drop the raw files onto it. It's good for realistic-looking HDRs, while Photomatix is better for artistic HDRs. The in-camera HDR mode is ok but the results it'll give you aren't as good.

Like I said, I find that the color/contrast is a bit lacking in the 16mm, so I often try to counteract that by shooting with EV bracketing & then combining the imagines into an HDR.
