    Looks nice, Mazor. What is your HDR process?

    I use UFRAW to convert 3 separate exposures, low, middle and high. afterwards I use Photomatix Pro to combine the images into a single HDR tiff. Afterwards I use photoshop to sharpen the image (USM) then save out as JPG. I then use PTlens to straighten up image distortion if image was taken at widest 24mm setting.

    Silly question...how to you keep the camera perfectly still while changing the exposure? I mean, even with a tripod the slightest touch of a button will move the camera. I though auto-bracket but I've never found it to work very well for HDR...

    Okay, here is the easy way to get pics with differnt exposures:

    1. Take 1 ( one ) RAW
    2. Develop 3 JPGs, one with -2, one with 0 and one with +2 exposure
    3. combine them thru you HDR SW

    Fits Perfect.... HDR for dummies ...

    Thats exactly how I did it! sorry I forget to mention I used one RAW file, and made 3 TIFF files from UFRAW at 3 different exposure levels. The Dynamic range of the Lx3 is surprisingly good, but not as good as my 5D but still and alot of data can be extracted this way.
