A word of advice: never try to take a HDR picture of trees on a windy day, without a tripod, in a hurry! At least the ghosting isn't that noticeable, except at the top against the sky.

Very True, Jessica, (sorry if I got your name wrong.) You dont want to know how many HDR trials I have dumped because of ghosting.

About the same number as I have, maybe? I'm going to try and redo this HDR, spending more time pin warping it. Maybe I can somehow force it to fit - but I doubt it. Too bad, I like this picture.

Do you use Photomatix? When you use it in interactive mode you can check a box that has it try to reduce ghosting due to movement in the shot. It's not perfect, but it's better than nothing. (BTW you can try Photomatix for free,

I have the free version of Photomatix, but I don't like it as much. For all these on Panoramio, I've used Dynamic Photo HDR. It has a better fitting method - as I said above, "pin warping." It takes a lot of time but does a better job than Photomatix, where it all seems to be automatic. DP also has an Anti-Ghosting Mask, but the result is very visible against the rest of the picture and I'd rather not use it unless I have to. I guess next time I know - brace the camera against something while taking HDR, especially since I don't have autobracketing and have to change settings between shots.
