    looks very artsy.... cool in and COLD AND deserted... :) Feels like a scene out of the Matrix movie. Was that in camera HDR or processed in LR or other SW?

    Yes, I'd like to hear your process as well, from the start. Camera settings, etc., that's a tremendous shot.

    This was done with an E-M1 and 12-40
    It was shot as RAW, 5 frames although I only used 3
    It's my second HDR photo.

    I used a tripod and was on the lower level of the Lake Shore Drive bridge
    At the Chicago river.

    I shot 5 to make sure I got 3 that bracket the correct exposure - you want a 2EV interval across 3 shots - in retrospect I should take a test photo and review the exposure and then shoot 3

    The IBIS was off - shooting in Aperture priority so DOF stays constant
    Make sure the aperture and shutter speed allow for up down 2 or 4 EV without capping
    I.e your camera only goes to 1/8000, don't have your reference photo at 1/4000
    Also set ISO to 200, didn't want it to jump around
    It was darn cold out


    I looked at it in Aperture, decided on a white balance
    Then loaded the 3 original raws into a program called Photomatix
    Use the academic discount if possible

    Photomatix has some canned settings, I chose one and then tweaked it to my liking

    Finally Photomatix merges the 3 layers and let's you do some final sharpening etc
    Then export to JPEG (or tiff)

    Pretty easy and one of my best recent landscapes

    ^^^ baz, very nice mating of subject and technique...

    I don't do HDRs often - more like a passing fancy not yet passed. My wife calls them "fun." Well, OK then!

    both are stitches of hdr images...workflow is:
    -take 5 bracketed images at +/- 1.0 EV
    -rotate tripod head and repeat
    -import .orf into into photomatix PRO for hdr....exposure fusion with zero settings altered from default...
    -export as TIFF
    -stitch in ICE and export as TIFF
    -import into LR for final editing/tweaking

    these aren't my best, but are the most recent ones I have done.

    Has anyone got shots from the EM1's builtin HDR modes that they can share (ie. no pp with HDR apps)?

    Thx.

    3 shots bracketed from the Olympus Pen 2 with existing light. Panasonic 14mm f2.5 lens.
    Tech day, helping the guy pictured. Funny, in one of the bracket images, his eyes were closed.
    The de-ghost feature in PhotoMatix fixed it. While I was not happy with the "reds" blushing in his jacket, it was a good way to remember the day.
