***Edit*** I was just reading over the description, and I realized I failed to mention this is the second of my HDR attempts. It didn't do much with the light really, but it did bring out the light on the pavement leading up to the lighthouse. Shows us the shadow and all. I think that makes a world of difference. There is still plenty that I need to learn about the HDR process though***

The HDR is working. Aside from the light and shadow leading to the light house, I bet the lighthouse itself has far more detail than a single exposure could provide. I'm curious as to how many exposures you used on this one? ANd which program.

I saw your link to GIMP in the above comment and snagged it to my favorites for later downloading. I was discussing this program with someone the other day and have been intending to try it out. So, a comment snoop says thanks for the link. :)

Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you. Life has been busy. You know, the same old song and dance.

Now I can get back to your many comments (which I appreciate).

Obviously I will start with this one. . .

I used 3 exposures for this one, if I recall correctly. I think I was using the HDR function in PaintShop Pro X2. But I can't say for sure at this point. I have tried a number of things now, and I am not sure HDR is my best path. I get lost in the post processing a lot.

Now an even later reply to your late reply :P

I try and keep my HDR processing to minimum. Same reason, I think. It can lead blindness too. I generally just run my exposures through Photomatix Basic, move the sliders till it looks balanced, and thats it. I do like what it can do for for exposure balancing though. And sometimes it seems to add a finer sharpness to things.
