Apogee Photography says:

Thank you so much Trey for putting this together and thank you for all the other volunteers who helped make this a great event!

I have to say I was a bit disappointed when I got home and realized my camera had been in P mode rather than A mode.

HDR doesn't work very well in P mode...

Here is a shot that I took of John while he was taking a shot.

Thanks for arranging the walk; it seemed like a pretty good turn out to me! (An extra-special thanks for your excellent tutorials, as well.)

This was awesome. Trey's work's been a big influence since I first laid eyes on his stuff. Whodathunk I would move to Austin one minute and be shooting with Trey Ratcliff the next. Did I say "awesome?" Awesome. And awesome some more.

Thanks for setting this up Trey! I took a LOT of photos, this one turned out the best but it's a bit noisy. Anyone know a good free noise-reduction package for the Mac? I'd love to get Noiseware but I can't afford it right now.

Thanks Trey! This was my first time to do anything like this. What I really enjoyed was getting out and taking photos down town. I've lived here my whole life, and I haven't taken advantage of all the photo ops Austin has to offer.

This one reminded me of a haunted house...

Very cool all !

I'm enjoying seeing this stuff.

And feel free to post MULTIPLE photos in here if you like... no need to just do one. :)

AND, I should have mentioned this in my talk -- but you don't just have to post HDR shots - all photography is good! :)

Taylorman2 says:

I am a beginner- I don't even own a DSLR yet- but I saw Trey on the news yesterday and invited my friend Seabrook who is a photographer to come last night- so we shared his camera and tripod. We got Photomatix, and had a blast afterwards processing our shots. I don't know how to use Photoshop, so after adjusting my shots in Photomatix I did a little more touching up in iPhoto. I didn't do any masking and only cropped one of my shots. I tried to dance on the edge of real/surreal in some of my choices- obviously going for surreal in the balcony shot that night - with an accidentally dirty lens.

We had a great time- and now are both big fans of the process. Thanks Trey for being so generous and collaborative with your knowledge and time!

I didn't do any HDR. Didn't have my tripod, and it's a little more involved than I want to get right now.

I consider myself somewhere between beginner and amateur, closer to amateur. ;) The hardest part for me is the post-processing! Takes a lot of time to learn.
