Re: First attempt at HDR cc please

thanks for looking and liking some of them.  the softness is not intentional.  its because i'm not using a tripod I guess.  but i take no offense because I agree.  I will be getting a tripod in a couple of months.  which pictures do you notice are very soft?

the type of pictures you'd use HDR are those that have spots that are dark and spots that are very bright.  the camera can't handle both at the same time. if you meter the bright spot, the dark areas will be to dark.  if you meter the dark areas, the bright areas will be to bright.  so you take a shot where the bright is metered and a shot where the dark is metered and you put them together.  but you normally take an odd number of shots.  if you do 3, one is taken at the right exposure, one is taken 1-2 stops underexposed and the other is taken 1-2 stops overexposed.
