It's been a while folks, great to see how the community has evolved. Haven't shot any HDR for ages, so particularly happy I came across this beautiful scenery yesterday. It's an oil tanker lightening in the industry harbor of Bremen, Germany. Enjoy!

+Paul Carmona : I agree, at days it can get aggravating when somebody who didn't care to RTFM makes you manually remove 50 spam posts one by one, but one outstanding picture shared makes it all worth it.

I agree, Ian. Actually, nothing in the picture is generated or fabricated - the tools just accentuated what was already in the RAWs.

Hans Zimmers Studio

Here's another shot of oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmers incredible, out-of-this-world studio.
In this one I applied HDR trying to replicate exactly the atmosphere of the room. This is impossible without HDR because the room is almost impossible to take pictures of - lots of light-absorbing surfaces (dark wood, red velvet) and only a few point light sources. There's no way to capture this room with one exposure. Even in HDR, it came out like drowned in blood.
 
This image is created from 6 exposures at 0.7 bracketing, developed in Photomatix, lots of subtle manual lighting and color corrections using Niksoftware Viveza, and some Niksoftware Sharpener Pro.

Hans Zimmers Studio, today. I feel incredibly blessed to have the chance to take a picture every time I'm here and have the room to myself.
 
I surely can't compete with my friend +Trey Ratcliff s amazing captures of the same place, but I love trying because this place it's one of the most rewarding motifs for HDR, and impossible to do without HDR. This is 7 exposures mapped in Photomatix, then treated with Niksoftware Color Effects.

Trey, I look forward to the meeting! Hans was incredibly busy this time - I saw him for maybe half an hour.

Here's a looped 8-km-part of my bike workout route. I filmed it for dreadful cold and wet Ergometer days. More info in the Youtube description

LOOKING FOR NEW MODERATORS

Hi there folks. I have to step back as an active Moderator - my other activities are eating too much time. In the past three months I've seen this community grow from 10.000 to almost 100.000 members and seen many exciting shots, so it's been quite a blast. I'll occasionally be here and help out. 
Anybody interested in being promoted to Moderator please shoot me a message. 

Thanks!

Thanks +Paul Carmona One more thing: I've seen some not marked as spam that have gone through. If they don't look like HDR to me, I think I'll still issue a warning in the comment box if that's okay.

Just in case nobody noticed - we quietly surpassed 90.000 members. +Trey Ratcliff invited me as a moderator in early December. Since then, I've seen 80000 people join. Wow!

Very well said Ian. I joined this community so that I can ascertain what I'm doing wrong and what I'm doing right when I create my HDR images. I wish there was more feedback on the images posted. Also I'd like to hear from the more experienced HDR photographers on what makes an HDR image technically perfect. We cannot create great images if we don't know the pitfalls to avoid.

Townhall of Bremen, Germany, from 1409. The extreme 10mm wide-angle also shows the Cathedral and a small part of the city parliament. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Town_Hall_of_Bremen

This is 7-exposure, 0,67 bracketing HDR processed in Photomatix, with my usual workflow of Imagenomic Noiseware, Nik Sharpener Pro and Nik Color FX.
