    As a canon guy, I only get 3 brackets, but could you post you EV settings, or are they different for every shot ?
    Sorry in advance for such a noob question but all if the tutorials are very vague

  • Hi Glenn

    i’ll try to dig them up for you, sdome of the nikons will do up to nine brackets in auto braketting, you can also program your own settings into them and set up personal templates

    it comes in handy.

    there is a good hdr tutorial at tret ratcliffs site which is worth a look

    Amazing… really nice. The moods are kind of clashing, I can feel the depressed mood from the blues and the happy, cheery mood from the colourful lights and reflections. Great shot.
