I very seldom do HDR anymore. I used to do it a lot but I just do it for fun now. I was trying the in body image stabilization (IBIS) of the E-M5 and also the fast 9fps so I did this handheld and you can see the results. This is a 5xp (-2, -1, 0, +1, +2) shot. Very sharp although I had to re-align the images when I was doing the PS work. Yes, I don't just rely on Photomatix, I always do painting afterwards to retain what I like on some of the exposures. IBIS coupled with the 9fps of the E-M5 what can I say, you don't need a tripod, hehehe. The blur of the train was captured at a 1.3sec exposure.
An early upload for HSS because I'm going out to attend a children's party and it is not just a children's party, there's some drinking too for the adults. Have a great rest of the weekend flickr folks!
