That's one of BMW's M5s assigned to the Performance Center. It's IB. My own M3 is SSII with the Fox Red.

^^ Even the 1er can look pretty at times.

No, seriously, nice image. What s/w do you use for HDR?

NP, the picture looks great. Your sig is HDR, though, right? I don't do HDR either but I'm interested in trying it. My few attempts using PS CS4 looked like crap. I think most people doing HDR images are using some other s/w to do it, but I'm not sure what they use. I've been out of the photog loop for a few years now.

i think the HDR software is photomatrix, if you're looking for it.

I have no trouble with CS4. Are you using a tripod and taking a +2 and -2 exposure along with your base exposure? My CS4 folds them together seamlessly (pun intended). You know that you can get a variety of results by manipulating each of the layers' attributes before combining.

I've found that chosing a subject that will respond well under HDR is the issue. If the highlights and shadows go off both ends of the chart, then it's a good HDR candidate. Practice just doing HDR that doesn't look like HDR, just more like what your eye sees, bringing out detail in shadows and stopping the highlights from washing out the sky, for instance. Only a photographer would know that you used HDR. When you get good at that, then you can play around with dramatic effects, like popping colors out of a really dark setting.

Thanks to both of you. I haven't really given it any serious effort yet, shooting bracketed shots and combining, but I tried a few HDRs of different "exposure" processing of the same raw image (once each for highlights, midtones, and shadows), saved into three different TIFFs and combined using the HDR feature of CS4, and it just looked miserable. I need to read more tutorials about how to get the look I've seen from some of the HDR stuff posted online.

CS4 is relatively new to me. I came from CS, and prior to that v6 and v4 before that. So I skip versions and upgrade infrequently. Every time I do, it takes me a while to get used to the new interface and new features.
