Don't know if I confused you about always shooting RAW, but if you are talking about the inability to post RAW then I apologize. Yes, always shoot RAW, but you'll have to first process the RAW file and then save as a .jpg or some of the other file formats the sites require.

Most sites don't accept RAW or .tif files.

And if you're not talking about this, then disregard and go back to having a great Thanksgiving (if USA).

Open your TIF file in a photo editor such as Photoshop and either 'Save As' or 'Export' to JPEG.

just because you stylize a photo in Photomatix doesn't make it a HDR unless you used multi-exposure shots

Couple of my first few vehicle HDR attempts. You have to excuse the crappy quality, they are saved off facebook then uploaded to flickr. I'll find the originals and upload straight to flickr later

a couple more. i tend to try to go with a more natural hdr look. to each their own, but too many people over do HDR shots imho. 75% of time HDR isn't even needed. out of thousands of pix i have, these are probably the only hdr's

Nice pictures. I concur with your sentiments.

I used 3 exposures just like I was told....-2, 0, +2. Maybe I was told wrong? They look like some of the other ones in the thread so I figured I did it right. Unfortunately I do not have $1000 camera but for a $35 camera, I think they're alright :P

The cost of the camera is not an issue here. Even the $7000 cameras cannot help what is going on here. It is the PROCESSING of the image that is being called into question.

As others have said, to each his own, but please, do you really think most pictures on this thread are worth the band width they take up to get them here?

Sure, everyone starts out on Photomatix ramping up the sliders to the max, I certainly had my share of those, but after awhile most learn to reduce the cartoonish effects that 100% sliders give you.

Take the bracketed photos and try processing them at default settings. You can then choose between the more realistic photos that capture detail in both sky and shadows or play with the different presets that give different looks. I'd suggest that most reserve the more special effects for just the occasional photo.

OK, flame shield on.

Yes, that is better, but then again, this same image in your previous post wasn't all that bad either. This picture is not the one that brought on the over done reply.

The only thing that I would do with this one is to pull back on greens and yellows in your favorite image editing program. Those colors appear on my monitor to be over-saturated.

Make sure noise reduction is on in Photomatix if you don't have any other noise reduction program.

EDIT: Earlier I had suggested using default settings. I'm sticking with that other than the STRENGTH and for that I am up in the 95 range. While there are many other photo editing tasks that Photomatix can do, I don't let it as I use other programs for other tasks.

Not saying its true HDR but batching single files still makes for some nice shots. This first one was just a single photo with a run-of-the-mill digital camera which i then batched. The other two were taken with my iphone in hdr mode (two photos) then batched.
