First atempt at HDR's

So I've been using Photo Matrix Pro, and it fairly easy. It gives you a TON of different presets, with thumbnails... and while some are pretty crazy, I think I prefer to at least start with the more natural... or top "default" setting. Then I can push it around a little, but not so much as most of those presets...

Oh, another thing... Lasty week, I tried to manually shoot like 7-9 shots of a scene, while changing the exposure between each shot. Results were... eh... Okay.

So this morning, I took a whole bunch of 3 shot bracketed exposures (about 60 shots for 20 sets of 3, and I found that 3 properly separated (by exposure) shots, did just as well, or better, than my 7-9 manually bracketed shots...

Anyway, I know that HDR is one of those things that some love, and others hate. I really like the surealness of them.

So I was up at 2 AM, to be at the Marin Headlands, above the Golden Gate bridge, by 5:30am

Could have been a more colorful sunrise, but I still felt I got some pretty nice ones

Hope you enjoy them.
