These were all taken today with the Oly 9-18mm on my E-P2 mounted on a Manfrotto tripod. All three images were taken in 5 exposures and combined in Aperture 3 with Nik software. The location is the Mt. Timpanogos Temple located in American Fork, Utah.









Once again, thanks for looking.

Great shots! The clouds look a little bit off though. I've never messed with HDR before, pretty easy to post-edit?

I'm still figuring out the post editing, mostly just pushing sliders until I get close. For these shots of the temple I was satisfied with a more artistic look, but for some landscape shots I'm still working on I'm going for as real and natural looking as possible, which seems to be the hard part with HDR.

I just recently started using Aperture and now I only shoot in RAW, including these, because it's so seamless. I'm on my way to the store right now to find some books on HDR and Aperture 3.

Nate,
do you find then that the Oly jpeg engine now becomes "useless" as you use the raw files and perform all your corrections and editing? just curious :) I like the jpegs but if i had the time I would definitely take advantage of aperture and the raws to give it my own feel.

I love the Oly JPEG engine, I'm currently only shooting RAW beacause I want try it out and because it's so easy to do with Aperture. Currently the only time I really make any RAW specific adjustments is when I'm setting up an image set for HDR conversion.

This was the last image was also taken today, and I think I'm finished playing with it for now and I'm adding it to the first post.
