Can also be done with one Raw photo, when shooting photos for Hdr outdoors set white balance to cloudy. Also after using Photomatix i open it up in photoshop and go to Image - Adjustment - Hdr Toning and play with the sliders.

Thanks Roger1, I have not used RAW much (I know I should)Blush.

For a newbie like myself Photomatix seems soooo less complicated than Photoshop CS6.

Multiple shots at different shutter speeds, and the same aperture works best.

The subject here is not suited to HDR. HDR is best used in conditions similar to inside a church, where theres a lot of detail, but the detail id obscured by heavy shadow, and windows are usually very beautiful, but yoo bright for nless you specifically set the camera up for the bright light. Then, HDR looks good, here, the **** is attractive, but is also one you could achieve, with perhaps a more natural appearance with a single shot.
