  3. Another great HDR work Mate! Did you use any lens filter? How many bracketed image did you merge and what were the exposure? Hope you don’t mind me asking, I am so inspired by your photography technique that I wish to learn someday. Cheers πŸ™‚

    • I absolutely don’t mind sharing, its just easier to answer question rather than blabber off like I’m an expert which I’m not πŸ™‚ No filter on this one, I used 6 bracketed images from -3 –> +2… I generally go from -2 –> +2 unless the sun is in the picture then I try to grab a -3 to get more details in the disc.

    • I still owe you that tutorail… I didn’t forget… I’m going to make into a post since I get asked quite often and I figured why not share the knowledge πŸ™‚

      • Good plan, though I looked around some and figure it’s a bit more than I want to tackle at this time… but I look forward to your post. Very much agree about sharing.
