    Morning everyone. It's been a while since posting photos here for me. Here are a few from my vacation last week. All are HDR using my E-P1.

    These are tastefully done. Usually I skitter away as soon as someone says HDR :biggrin:, but most of these are within my personal boundaries. I really like how the second image turned out.

    Thanks!! I try to use it to extend the dynamic range of the camera, to get what my eyes see. I don't like that crazy, over saturated look that's found on the web.

    Nice stuff, I like the fountains the best.
    Are you using a tripod and low ISO?
    Do you leave it on bracket or manually change the exposure to get the range you need?

    A bit color-heavy, perhaps, but the first one show's a great eye for framing.

    Well done! And kudos for not getting the gear wet.

    Always on a tripod, at ISO 200, no matter the time of day, or the scene. The only exception to this is when I'm somewhere they don't allow tripods. Then I use my E-PL2 and use a 5 stop auto bracket and set the camera to fire all the exposures while I hand hold. Not perfect, but I can usually get something decent out of it.

    Manual mode, leave the aperture alone, usually f8 or f11, adjust the shutter to get the exposures I need.

    Thanks.

    Thanks, I like good, rich color saturation, but try not to let it get out of control. Sometimes I go a little far, but I don't think I did for these.

    Thanks for the info Guzzi, going into the menus for bracketing always annoys me on the e-P1, I'll try manual next time.
    I love the colours in my e-P1, better than e-pL2 in my opinion.

    Yeah, I prefer the E-P1 as well. I don't like auto bracketing because it limits the number of exposures, and I don't always do the same number of over/under exposures.

    Charleston is such a pretty place. You captured some lovely images of it.
