    5 manual exposures, more control that way. My camera does offer multiple bracketing, but I never use it since it never looks quite as good.

    That's only the overly processed stuff. I like to keep mine subtle. A single exposure rarely shows the depth of tones that appear on the actual object. It can be useful in situations with harsh lighting, or with extreme amounts of contrast.

    hmm..I see what you mean.
    I agree the less-processed shots do look better..
    sort of like "digital zone system" in a way..(I worked on a similar process at Kodak.)

    Yes, these can look very odd if not done right - of course that could be intentional.

    Really, this isn't so different of the old school methods to achieve the same - dodging/burning prints, variable contrast paper, gradient filters, multiple exposures and multiple lights.

    Remember folks for this to work you should use a tripod and you have to change the exposure by adjusting the shutter speed not the f-stop.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    Thanks! I've been wanting to try it too, finally got around to it. IR stuff is pretty cool too, but don't you need a lens/filter for it?

    Funny, I find exactly the opposite. I like auto-bracketing way more because it's far faster, hence less chance for ghosting. Put the camera on continuous shot, hold the button for a couple seconds, done. Lot less movement that way, in my experience.

    Yessir, that's not uncommon. One of the articles I read on the subject (written by a pretty heavy hitter in HDR, so to speak), said that he finds around 20% of people just do not like HDR. I have issues with some of it too; like others, the overly done stuff can be really weird. But I find it more surreal than gimmicky.

    Or with exposure compensation, as is the case when using auto-bracketing.

    Pardon my lack of knowledge with the new cameras ... is there a way to adjust exposure that doesn't change either shutter speed (ie: duration) or f-stops (ie: light intensity)?
    All the best,
