Any tips for taking HDR shots of moving objects? Like riding through a river crossing or through a great landscape? Haven't attempted this yet, but I could see where it could get challenging. So, any tips?

If you use Photomatix Pro it has provisions for deghosting, i.e. getting rid of extra images, such as moving people or vehicles, tree limbs blowing in the wind, ripples in a stream, etc. You get to choose which of the multiple images to retain in your finished photo. You can deghost several different areas within a photo, so you should be able to get the results you want.

Cool, Pillar of Fire. I went to Kindergarten there way, way back in the day.

It's free (as in speech), and works pretty well. Now onto a few pictures:



I don't do much HDR, so these are all I have. Most of the time I just like to use it to make my colors vibrant like in the SXV shot above.

You could shoot a single exposure in RAW then make multiple copies with differing exposure values to send to photomatix pro. Multiple exposures may be needed if you have a high dynamic range of light, but deghosting is not alway successful for motion in my experience.

You could shoot in jpeg as well, but you lose lots of data that may be needed to recover shadows and highlights. Take a photo you already shot and give it a try.

Any recommendations for "HDR-friendly cameras"?

My obsolete Nikon Coolpix 5700 has an auto-bracket selection that isn't automatic. If I set it to -2, 0, +2, it will change the exposure after each shot, but I have to manually shoot 3 photos. NOT GOOD if I want to set up a tripod and get in the picture myself using the timer.

Also, if I shoot in RAW mode, it takes about 8 seconds to save the image to memory.

I still have it because it has a good lens and 8X optical zoom.

Thanks,
Rick.

On that note, when I use Luminance with RAW, it automatically creates multiple exposures out of the RAW images. So, when I shoot 3 RAW images, I get 9 images total that get blended down to the LDR image.
