Actually, I think you leave the aperture constant and change the exposure length.

Looks like there may have been a little movement in the exposures. You have to be absolutely motionless when taking the multiple exposures. Tough to do, even with a tripod.

yes the aperature needs to be constant so that the depth of field will not change. you also need to use manual focus so that the focus i in exactly the same place between exposures. its not too hard once you get the hang of it. IMO your effect is a little overdone... what program did you use?i reccomend photomatix

Photoshop will not give you the best results. Like someone said photomatix is the best. I have done ALOT of HDR pictures and John deer boy I love you but you just dont do it right. :( Shadow and highlight is still a 8bit image (maybe RAW which is higher bit image) but HDR is 32bit. There is no way you can get that kind of tonal range with 1 picture that is 8 bit.

Photoshop will give you a 16bit HDR image not even close to what photomatix will do for you a 32bit image

8 vs 16 bit doesnt really matter a whole lot. post an image of each, you cant really tell the difference. HDR ends up being taken down to 8 or 16-bit, because you don't have an HDR monitor. it can only display a certain range of lights and darks.. not the foll tonal range that you can see with your eyes.

It sure does matter, I can tell every single time I shoot raw and JPEG. And that Jpeg which is 8bit and the raw is 12bit there is a hugh difference even with just that. Your right on monitors not showing the full tonal range but there is still a hugh difference on my apple display. So what kind of stuff do you do Bonnevillan?? Do you shoot professionally?

no, just a hobby shooter with a Nikon D50. I have shot motocross photos for a website before, at the national races. that was when i realized all the photographers around me had 100x more gear and money into it

do you do professional shooting?

i guess you are right there is a bit of a difference. but low quality stuff online, i would bet the average web user wont notice.
