This is my first true HDR picture. This is the third version of this that has been uploaded. The first two versions were manually blended using Photoshop Elements (and thus weren't true HDR). This last version was blended using Photomatix. I should have used RAW files rather than JPEGs, but I didn't think to switch my camera's mode at the time. The picture is made from two night-time exposures (30s, 8s). I used ISO 100. The first two photos looked grainy. At first I thought it was due to the exposure itself, but it turns out it was due to the PSE processing. This is the uncropped version just for kicks.
