There is a new alpha version of ML for the 7d that has working HDR features. So I am now free to expand to more than 3 exposures. Just in case there is anyone else out there with a 7D, or is thinking of getting one as prices of previously enjoyed units are fairly reasonable.

I'm also enjoying your HDR photo's Dave, and the thread in general - I've kept dipping into it from time to time. I seem to remember reading somewhere that you can create a number of different exposure values from a single RAW image. Does that sound right? I've just bought a Nikon D5100 and it's the first camera I've had that'll shoot RAW (NEF) images, so I'll have to do some research and experiment from there.
The HDR simulation from my iPhone is, frankly, rubbish. But for those with Photoshop CS5, 5.5. or 6 (I don't know if previous versions have it) there is the HDR Toning feature in the Image > Adjustments menu. It has a number of useful presets (e.g. High Contrast Photorealistic, High Contrast Monochrome, etc.) but these can be adjusted and altered at will.



EDIT/UPDATE: Additional info from http://www.flickr.com/groups/raw2hdr/
"About HDR from a single RAW

To get the best from HDR (High Dynamic Range) images one should really plan ahead and use bracketed exposures right from the camera.

Sometimes however this is not possible, such as in action shots, or perhaps you merely wish to rescue a shot that has under or overexposed areas that can't be corrected by other means. If you shoot in RAW, as I do, you can create bracketed exposures from a single RAW file and use these to produce HDR images. Perhaps not as good as HDRs planned and executed from start to finish but certainly good enough to rescue a shot you like that suffers from exposure problems.
"

So, as you say Dave, bracketed exposure is the best way to go but it's also possible from a single image too, with some preprocessing to give you 3 or 5 (or whatever) images from a single shot.

Those last ones are impressive, the moonlight ride and the MotoShow ones.

JimRidesThis,

Back around page 13 I posted quite a few examples of single exposures converted to HDR. You do not need to shoot in RAW, although you can recover more detail from RAW. Post 189 is a tutorial on how I convert and process single JPEGs. Have fun!

Thanks Dave, I just had a look now. I'll have a play with an old jpg images in Photomatix - watch this space

1st attempt at HDR

The original jpg...

pre hdr1

The HDR version - four different exposure values and 5 minutes in Photomatix and Photoshop...

hdr1

By no means a perfect image and I think I might have toned back the HDR processing a bit too much. I didn't want an over-processed image though so I'm happy with this as a first attempt.

I'll be back

Jim
