Amazing, as always.

was wondering if you would be willing to share some of your secrets as to how you always make such amazing hdr's. really im just wondering about processing tips because i know you have an amazing camera. but if you had some basic camera tricks to setting up a nice hdr I would also be willing to hear those as well.

Absolutely amazing!

Did you use a TSE lense or do perspective correction in Photoshop?

Looks like they are corrected in Photoshop.

I try not to go overboard with HDR. I want to give the photo something extra without getting too extreme. In Photomatix, I keep the "Strength" setting below 20. Saturation is usually between 60-80 because I like colorful shots. I also use the Shadows/Highlights and Brightness/Contrast tools in Photoshop to further adjust contrast and color if needed.

The first shot was taken with a 24mm tilt-shift, but the rest have perspective correction applied to them. I'll be getting the 17mm tilt-shift in a few weeks.

Yes, always. I also use a remote release cable and my camera's timer to further minimize camera shake.

do you still do a photo merge with multiple exposures or are these single photos?
