Hello again Ron,

I remember riding my bike through the university shown here as well as Bush Park, Minto Brown, Riverfront, through the captiol area, etc. I practically lived on my bike back then. Was this shot taken with a super-wide or a fisheye lens? Just curious. Oh, btw... I bought Photomatrix Pro and have posted various attempts at using it. Great program! Hoping to purchase a telephoto lens later today! Combined with my cameras anti-shake mechanism, sometimes I don't even need a tripod! I love the richer colors and depth I can get now. Keep these great Oregon pics coming... Tony

Hi Tony, this photo was a panoramic photo. I took several exposures in the vertical orientation, then stitched them together with Stitcher Unlimited. I'm glad Photomatix is working for you. I know you can get by without using a tripod but if you want maximum sharpness ( even with an image stabilizing function) in your image, use a tripod as often as possible. I even use a cable release or my camera's self timer to avoid camera movement. Ron

Hi Ron,

Yes, I've been HDR happy here lately. Experimenting. Testing the limits I guess. I have been using a tripod for most of my HDR shots. I was looking at some cable releases when I bought my new zoom lens the other day. I know just pushing down on the shutter I've helped the tripod sway. (need a newer more sturdy one of those too!) Likely the cable release will be the next on my list to obtain. As always, thanks for the tips... Tony

Hello Ron,

Question for ya. What order do you make a panoramic HDR in? Combine photos in HDR first, then merge them or merge each set and then apply HDR? Hope you don't mind me asking you this way.

take care

Hi Tony, I first do HDR editing (in my case I have three separate exposures and I need 6 shots to do a 360 degree panoramic so I have a total of 18 exposures). After I have finished tone mapping my HDR files, I import them into Stitcher Unlimited for stitiching. Finally, I sharpen, tweak the saturation and do some minor spot editing in Photoshop. It's a very long , time consuming process. Ron
