      Your first attempts at HDR came out better than mine did. The exposure through the window is great. Did you use photomatix or Oloneo? If you tone down the tone mapping strength a bit you should be able to bring the natural white color back to the paper on the floor, and minimize the halos. But great first efforts.

      Thanks. I'm about to replace it in a bit actually. Done. This is really as far as I will push the "HDR effect" I think. I used CS5. The paper on the floor is plastic sheet, I'm afraid it's picking up the color of the wood below. The big problem is that I was not using a tripod, it was hand held so there is a fair amount of ghosting. I've a super light tripod now.

      Nice - but I would take a look at the shadows where the windows meet the easel.

      @paul: yeah, I know, the software had tough time because of the abrupt change between the window and the border of the easel.

      Unfortunately it seems all HDR software is fooled in situations like that. It doesn't know which objects should have a hard line of contrast, and which ones should have a soft line. Most of the time while working with HDR, I'll take the result from whatever software I'm using, and the middle exposure, and bring them into PS and replace areas like the one on the easel. It takes longer, but is worth it.

      Yeah I figured I would need to do that. I'm doing it from PS CS5 already, might as well fix it. I do hate that PS is not keeping track of my HDR parameters (i.e. back in the DNG), but I think I saved the ones for this image explicitly in a preset. I like that photo, I'll try to fix that. Thx.
