Another amazing HDR photo, Gerri. I often refer others to your magnificent gallery, especially if they are talking HDR. With 5 exposures it is amazing that there doesn't seem to be any leaf movement. You're an inspiration. #8239655

Thanks Bill, Joao and Marty! Appreciate the nice comments...Marty, there was very little to no wind at this spot that day, which worked out good for the HDR, especially since I chose to use F-20 to get good dof on the foreground subject and background...my longer shutter speeds would not have worked for the HDR with any significant movement. Also using the continuous shooting mode to shoot as fast as possible the series, helps with any minor movement. The newer version of photomatix does a great job on the setting for minor movement of foliage as well, but I think with this number of bracketed sets, the key is to try and shoot without any wind where you might have movement. Thanks so much for stopping by to look and comment! :) #8240548
