My attempt at an HDR using photomatix software and then tweaking the curves on PS-CS2.
The 5 photo's used to create it were taken from1 Raw then the exposure adjusted to create +/- 2 stops.

Camera:Canon EOS 400D

There seems to be some pixellation in the overall image which seems to be over contrast or over sharpness.

I like the composition due to the lead in lines.

The pixelation was caused by reducing the file sizetothe100K allowance (image quality was 4, very low)

You should be able to reduce the image size to 300 pixels on the longest size. And then save for web jpeg. It should distort as much as it has. And i believe that the limit is 300kb.

Nicely processed and good detail. Agree there does appear to be a little pixellation. John

Thanks Anil,
Just checked and the limit is 100k, but as you say reducing the size may help (its currently 600 width). I dont normally have to drop the quality this low so i assume its due to the amount of colour detail thats caused it. I hav'nt tried the save as web jpeg, I'll give it a go and see if that helps.
