Thanks!

Some are, some partially. I always take three exposures about 1.5 stop apart or two when the contrast is really high and play around with manual blending, HDR, exposure blending etc. I often don't really like the colours you get from an HDR. But HDR's are a perfect starting point for B&W as well in those cases. I also use some tonal contrast plug-ins to bring out details.

This new one is probably the most extreme case of contrast.

Thx again. Do you have more street level shots? I can't imagine imagine the street scenery.

Thanks a lot. I'm trying all the time.

The main technique is to wait for the light. I prefer the light right after the sunset but you have to be lucky with the weather ofcourse. The other one is to always bring a tripod and use the optimal aperture of the lens for optimal sharpness. For most lens camera combinations f/8. If there is foreground interest which you want to put in focus you need to use something in the order of f/14 to f/22. If the camera allows always shoot in raw.

I always make three exposures. Afterwards you can decide which one is the best if 1 is sufficient. Or else you can try to blend them in manually or try different software tools for subtle HDR's. Or do a combination of these techniques.

What program do you use for HDR overlap?
