After reading Tony's chapter on HDR in SDP I was intrigued.  Most of my photographs have always left me wanting as though something were missing from the picture.  I understand now what it was.  My goal with this picture was to accurately represent in a photograph what my eye actually saw.  This resulting image was made from three photos taken at Harbor Park in Rockland, Maine.  It was a very bright day so my brackets leaned toward the underexposed side.  I used the Luminance HDR donateware to combine the images.  The originals were taken with a handheld Canon Rebel T5 eqipped with a Tokina AT-X Pro 28-70 zoom lens.

Hello Craig.

The HDR effect is very subtle in your photo, which is probably what you were aiming for.

You could play around with the crop to move the boat a little more towards the right in the photograph.

There's a little bit of noise in the sky, but that might be due to the resolution of the image you uploaded. (I might be wrong about this).  Either way, it can be removed easily.

Photoshop says the resolution is 72 dpi which to my novice eye seems a bit small, but again, I could be way off about this.

Nice shot Craig, a little noise reduction on the sky would improve your photo. A tripod will also improve the image quality, especially on multiple exposures.

Thanks guys.  Yes, I was looking more for increased detail and depth.  A photograph that gives the viewer the sense that they could walk right into the scene.  I'm not entirely sure how to go about reducing the noise in the sky.  The use of photo editing software is totally new to me.  I'm also not sure how to change the photo resolution to something better than 72 dpi.  I didn't pickup on that until I saw it in Picasso after you mentioned it Roderick.

Paul, I just unpacked a brand new tripod yesterday.  Nothing fancy, but I think it will serve purposes for now.
