Another few firsts here
First post with my new 17-40 F4 L
First architecture HDR
First indoor HDR and
First fountain in an HDR
Bit of a test for the technique - haing a relatively dark arcade with such a bright fountain dominating the foreground. Coped pretty well all considered.
I normally try to correct verticals and stuff like that with atrchitecture shots, but there was no chance here - that 17mm end is mental when you get it away from horizontal!

Top notch HDR well done Ade, works realy well, I'll have to look you up at Focus & pick your brains
as long as it's only my brains Bill, you're welcome!
tell yo what, 17mm lens in a city is wierd... everything seems miles away!
Love it Ade, works well.
Awesome Ade, that water looks really nice
Stunning shot Adrian. Great symmetery, and the detail is superb.
Love this HDR stuff.Superb shot.
It makes a really interesting view. Something to gaze at because it is unexpected. Fiona.
There's a lot in this - really impressive work.
Forget the verticals, this doesn't need correcting at all ... you're looking up aren't you and the eye doesn't see in straight verticals, so stuff the purists.
HDR has handled that water bloody well mate, and the detail through the rest of the shot is there for all to see, another fine example ... looks like all your firsts have paid off in spades.
One of the more realistic HDR shots, nice work. Like a cathedral to shopping.
I can live with the convergings. Just got a Sigma 10-20mm which rates as totally insane.
I think this is superb !
A great shot to start with and your conversion is spot on !!
Absolutely perfect. Brilliant.
Excellent shot Ade. I've had the 17-40 lens for some time and it is on my camera much more than the 24-105. It is super sharp and no vignetting at the 17mm end.
Excellent work. Congrats. A lovely mixture of golds and blues - there's a great deal to take in here.
This is up there with the best of the HDR images on this site for me Ade. Hell you learn fast! Top work.
Excellent stuff, Ade.
cheers everyone - took a fair bit of piddling around in Photomatrix, but finally got it how I wanted it
In a way, you're best chucking away most of the HDR effect and letting the dark bits go darker, otherwise it looks like a cartoon.
so get that black slider over to the right!
that's not bad for you man x
fantastic, A photo I shall draw inspiration from, thanks!
There are many firsts... but I know you can do better than this....
This photo gave me a bit of a headache... sorry not the photo itself, but to explain about censor cropping to someone who hasnt got a clue...
This is an amazing photo, I have the same lense but on a 350d so I loose the wide angle (thats what I was trying to explain)
anyway I love the HDR photos, I must try this way of developing, do you have any tips?
Once again this photo and many like it are amazing, keep em comming
Quality work all the way.
WOW just dont say enough, this is good, very good, nice one.
I knew "piddling" was a technical photo term
Excellent really like it, what time of day did you take this, as its normaly a busy arcade.
Nicely done - quality work
Impressive and glad you like the new lens!!
Well done mate
I'm sure you'll do a lovely job Mr Latimer - I was suffereing from an urgent need to go to the loo when I took this one so wasn't concentrating fully.
Tips for a HDR?
well I've started taken 5 shots of each scene so that I can do batch processing. Each shot is 2 stops apart.
then it's just a case of meddling or piddling, the preference is yours, with your tone mapping software.
Stunning Ade. Incredible detail.
Like the row of "ghosts"!!
Congratulations on a fine piece of work.
Loads of detail and the fountain makes a good 'foreground'. The non-vertical verticals work for me, so no complaints there either. The HDR treatment has worked really well. Also nice to see it all lit up and without all the people that are usually milling around.
Sod!! lol .. this is a shot I was planning on taking at the weekend lol ... nicely done .. very nicely done!
We werre in there at about 7:30, no one around really, just a few chavs passing through.
security guards are cooler in the evening - in the day they don't like tripod legs as people fall over them
Actually like the water on this one Ade!!! The combination of the w/a lens and the HDR technique has rendered this into an almost surreal image. Bit of a mind bender, worth more than just a casual glance!! Bill.
Note to self. Dont do any more mods for Ade he dosent like them lol
they are kinda mad Colin, but I've missed most of them (never check them) so cheers!
I'll look out for them more often.
you like the cartoon end of HDR then - it's all wonderfully surreal
i like this one alot
This is a stunning shot, the detail and colour really is very good
I know what you mean about a 17mm in a city! It is quite a challenge but the only way to get in a decent amount of coverage. I think it looks natural and not surreal at all.
Blimey Ade! Lights, mirrors, glass, movement, water! Is there nothing HDR can't handle!?
Good one, got the range I like and so glad you whacked that black to the right :o)
This is really fab!
A superb image.
Really Nice shot. Looks brilliant.
I sound like adunce among all these knowledgable people above, whats HDR?
Bloody marvelous Ade, it even beats the real thing
