    Ta. Turn off AF :-)! Short depth of field tends to stretch the capabilities of AF.

    Looks like HDR. Nice sense of scale on the Missouri.

    Lake Mead and Canyon were HDR, Missouri I cant remember.

    I like HDR, but prefer a more subtle approach. As a rule I don't really shop mine if I can.

    Only just spotted this - didn't realise we had a photography thread on here - the standard of photos is really good!

    Here are a few that I'm proud of...

    @CHR1S - really like some of your HDR shots, a lot of people "overcook" them and they come out looking horrendous. I like HDR when it's used to add range to a photo or used to artistically make it look surreal, some people don't seem to get that balance!

    I don't do a lot of HDR, but here are a few of mine (a bit smaller, sorry for the previous, huge posts!):


    Port de Sóller by Josh_Wolf, on Flickr


    Cornish Coast by Josh_Wolf, on Flickr


    Plaza Mayor, Madrid by Josh_Wolf, on Flickr

    BTW, I don't Photoshop everything but I do like to get a bit creative with it when I do

    I love when someone does PS properly. It can be really artistic.
    I prefer to get it right in camera, I may tweak the brightness and contrast but that's it.

    But yes I do like a good HDR'ing

    Obviously I'm a sinner, any photo I like the look of goes through the digital darkroom, even if it's just for a Curves layer. Why shoot RAW unless you're going to fiddle, I say

    (In case it wasn't apparent from the shots themselves, all mine earlier had been through the PS rinser, albeit some more than others.)

    @LosOjos & @CHR1S (for the lifeboat station) - that's the kind of HDR I like, simply compensating for the lack of dynamic range in camera. I hate the artificial halo look that was so popular a couple of years back. Good work soldiers Name:  salute.gif
