    hi kevin

    thanks for the compliment

    lol, no theyre not manipulation free.

    in fact its a technique called HDR. 3 images of different exposures merged to create the one image.

    then i go and play with them in photoshop and lightroom. the finished image bears little resemblance to the originals

    I guessed as much but am no less impressed.

    My only "manipulation" of an image is to make it lighter. :)

    Thanks for sharing !

    Most impressive Paul. Do you know of any decent guides which covers hdr photos? Been wanting to try this out for some time now.

    hi jakob

    tbh i have never used a guide of any sort, other than some online tutorials. a simple google search should locate these for you.

    what you do need though is some good software. i use photomatix, photoshop and lightroom. im not a great lover of the initial hdr image thats produced on merger which is why i use PS and lightroom extensively to create the finished image.

    i always shoot in RAW for the initial 3 images, which i set at 1 click either side of the zero, and then convert that to a tiff. if you immediately convert to a jpg the image when being worked in PS will degrade to much.

    hope this helps, if not, drop me a pm with your questions.

    cheers

    paul

    Cheers for the pointers. I use photoshop myself, but will check out the other programs you mentioned :) Thanks again.

    Not a brilliant photo I know but I've finally got a camera that allows me to take a panoramic view whilst sweeping the camera from left to right.
    I've always been a late starter & took me awhile to get a new camera.
    Taken up near the Ridgeway near us.
    Also it's a good excuse to bump this thread & see some other peoples photos.

    Very nice - where was that taken Diane?

    Here are a few from Norway a few years back, up in the mountains above Tromso, Norway just inside the Arctic Circle during a nice "crisp" February day. Most of the hike up was through knee deep and even waste deep snow. I was not expecting to go up there when I left the hotel and so was just in a pair of jeans and very few layers. Views took my mind off the cold though!
