This was a 3-shot HDR bracketed at +/-1EV, shot with my EF-S10-22mm that I bought from Peter-G on my XTi. Mirror lock-up, remote shutter release on tripod. Ie, the works.


Even then, there is still some blurring from wind (it's windy, we are on the top of one of the highest peaks in Hong Kong) and all the tourista foot traffic actually puts vibrations into the concrete floor slabs.


Merged in Photomatix, using Tone Compression for tone mapping.


What's also problematic in doing this as an HDR, is that the building's light schemes actually changes color. For example, the purple building on the left shifts from blue to red and back. So it kinda confuses the program a wee bit more.
