      How do you get him to stand still ?

      Very good. Doesn't have that fake look like sometimes HDR does. Realistic!

      Very nice use of HDR, I like how subtle it is, great work!

      wow, this is really good. Subtle use of HDR; you can barely tell it's HDR at all (except for the stunning amount of detail).

      Interesting! I've never seen HDR done for a picture of a person before.

      Nice... on the verge of being overdone, but not quite there.
      The sharpness and detail of his skin is very good.

      I have some HDR portraits as well, and I was looking for a group, didn't find one, so I created one. I'd love it if you could join it and post some of your pics...Thanks!!!

      From what I've found in my cursory search on Flickr, this is the best HDR portrait on here!

      Your HDR work makes this look so real - not overprocessed. This is great!

      It is interesting how do you get him to stand still. I make hdr photos from one photo. I set exposure values in photoshop, make 3 images with 3 different exposures. Save them and join them togther in photomatrix. But the result is not SO GOOD like YOURS.
      If you can, write, how you did it.

      Thanks

      I have made HDR photos from one raw file, but this was made from 5 jpgs shot in a quick bracketed burst. I guess I was just incredibly lucky that he didn't move during the burst. I also used Photomatix, then cleaned up the file a little in Photoshop. No tripods...just handheld.

      It is possible to shoot portraits like this for HDR, but you need some luck, like I had here. Try shooting in a burst of 3 shots...and you don't need to shoot raw. I always found that out-of-camera jpgs produced a better HDR, with my Nikon D200, at least (better than the D700...I don't know why...CCD sensor, perhaps?)

      Thanks for your interest anyway.
      Good luck shooting.

      Thank you for your request.
      I will try your idea about jpgs instead of raw images.
      I have canon 550D. Maybe the result will be better like in raw images.

      Thank you.
