I like foregrounds - but get the feeling HDR seems to ruin the skies. More the top one in particular...Would a graduated filter applied via PS assist that??

Middle one is great.... what speed to slow the water down??

IIRC I used 1s


I quite like the sky in the first one. If there is a lot of wind and the clouds are moving fast the bracketted shots all have different clouds in different positions, so that when the software joines them the sky can appear washed out - it can look good sometimes.

I agree about the last shot - I'm not very happy with it fullstop. Appears washed out. I may try again. I did burn the sky at the top but didn't want to 'over' do it. There's a fine line. I might try a graduated filter like you suggest - I'll let you know how it goes.

Many thanks for the feedback - keep the comments coming.....everyday is a school day in the photography department.

Just seen this thread ......... Here are a few of mine to keep the thread going ...... Different subject matter and situations - the one common element is that they are all treated from a single exposure rather than the more common 3 or 5 exposures. To me it gives a more subtle toning and when masked can be used to good effect.

That last interior shot is fantastic

You know the one with the 202 and 210 - I think that has real potential. I'd try again, but get the cars exactly either side of the circle in the wall, and try and frame (or crop after) the wall so it's even on both sides - would be perfect

thanks mate i gave that one a warm tonemap. i want to get all my cars up there to be honest. im trying to get some projectors on the 203 the stock HIDs are ok but the lights are utter crap at night compared to my 210/202 (same make hids)

getting eveyone together plus spreading my self over 2 cars is a pain lol but would be a great photo op for the wide angle and fisheye lens to come out.

hows you hunting for a 202 going ever considered a V6 203 there pretty cheap.

heres some more
3 brackets
hand held

I quite like some of these, what do you need to do them? Is it photoshop? Using a standard camera.
