    Super shots and fantastic subject matter. I did some HDR work early this year with my G3 and 20mm, got some nice results from 7 exposure bracketing

    Wow! Superb shots and and a subject matter I won't get to see, not sure I'd have seen the potential anyway. Well done :clap:

    Love these to death.

    Did you use standard photostyle with 0 settings? Guess you shot raw? Wonder if it's possible to get something close with jpg?

    My mac OS can't handle raw. Guess I will find out when I have the opportunity next weekend.

    Fantastic series. I really like the second one - B&W HDR! Suits the subject matter perfectly.

    All well done.

    I shoot RAW then export to JPEGS, then put those through PhotoMatix.

    I process HDR's the same way as the op, in photomatix, but i get my brackets from one raw file.
    I create 3 to 5 copies from the one raw file. I then import these copies into photomatix. The finished default HDR is usually close to what i like.
    From creating the first copy to finished HDR is never more than 4 minutes
    and gives me a tiff file of approx 85mb from my G3.
    All my camera settings a normal.
    I prefer making my HDR's from one file. I find i get sharper results, and no artifacts from movement in the scene.

    Nice; not too overbaked.

    Very nice - these are the first HDR's I have ever seen that I liked. They look natural and I would not have guessed they were HDR. Even ones I saw by a professional photographer/photo-instructor giving a session on HDR looked nothing like reality to me. To take a scene which is back-lit, then use HDR to illuminate the side that is in shadow, looks absolutely rediculous. These, however, all look natural. Good work.

    G3 for HDR

    Really nice photos. This has restored my faith in G3 HDR. Quick question:

    Is the AEB +/- 1 EV per frame? Some lists say it's +/- 2/3 per frame. I really want to buy this camera for HDR but having a full 6EV coverage on 7 frames rather than 4EV makes a lot of difference to me.

    I'd be interested to hear your views on using a G3 for HDR.

    How would you overall rate this camera for HDR?
