"Preaching to the converted"

Well, that's how it feels. My apologies for yet another "I'm so happy with my D7000" post. I bought mine today, charged the battery, and charged out the door to a local botanic garden. As a fan of HDR, the day just had to include some of those. These are both HDR images, shot at a fixed ISO 800 - mainly because I just wanted to see how the noise went and whether I could get away with using that ISO level for most of the day. The camera succeeded admirably, IMHO.

What did you use to process the photos. I can see a little ghosting on some of the stems in the first picture. Great shots.

I used a new program called HDR Express, but I'll have a go with my old faithful Photomatix and see what I can do about the ghosting. Photomatix always does a better job than the other third-party programs at that.

I've just started playing with HDR and have had amazing results using Photoshop CS5 to eliminate the ghosting.

This is a bit off topic, but try Nik Software's new HDR Efex. I am a convert.

I actually own that, along with Photomatix, HDR Fusion, HDR Express, Dynamic Photo HDR, and I'm also using the beta of Oloneo. I find that they all do things differently (of course), but to be honest I've been a little disappointed with Nik's effort. I love their other work, but that one needs to be V1.5 or V2 as quickly as possible IMHO. I especially hope they give us some more control over the dirty skies it tends to generate and that are challenging to overcome.
