not a bad start. its tricky and takes a bit to get that hang of.

did you use multiple exposure images or just manipulate one?

ive not got my act together to do it properly yet. i dont havea tripod though. i have had a stab anyway...

Its a way of combining multiple exposures to get a more detailed/better exposed/ more evenly exposed scene (by increasing the dynamic range of the picture, the light 'levels' within, by compressing them together)

Best example would be a seaside view where if you expose for the sky, the foreground will be underexposed (to dark) and if you expose for the foreground the sky will be overexposed (blown highlights etc). Combining 2 or 3 different exposures gives a nice evenly exposed picture.

However the technique can be pushed to extremes and gives some very cool/strange effects. e.g. one of my 'HDR's of brighton pier

It is possible to make a HDR from a single exposure. What you can do is make 3 copies of the same file, and process (using Lightroom or similar) with different exposure settings (i.e. -2, 0 +2), then combine the files in photoshop, and you can get a stunning image.

There's some good information at Canon Digital Photography Forums - Powered by vBulletin especially for Canon users. I've got a 5D, but still learning how to use it...

I used Photomatrix 3.. and a steady hand!

I've tried using RAW before on my 400d... but my mac with most of my software on is at work at the moment, which is annoying!

I got a new Canon Powershot G10 the other day- which i what I used for these, great little camera.
