@Craig:
thanks for your comments in the gallery:-)
The shot you are trying to take with your cam will be limited by exposure if just one is used, bracketed exposure is what you need to be trying if you want more dynamic range.
I went a bit further with the El Rocio shot by merging the sky from a separate shot and although there was a river there, i still preferred to eliminate it and construct a cleaner version with better reflective qualities in CS5 - so image is three parts giving it better dynamic range of exposure..
I can post the very flat original if you like, then you can see visually what developed..
regards,
Gary :-)

BTW: remember this is a retouch site (the best imho) and much of what i learned i gleaned from here :-))

awww, yer a love i really shld change that, shldnt i

gary, i've done a little bracketing and tried one of the free hdr programs, but so far the results have been poor. what ev settings are you using for the three exposures? 1/2 ev, 1/3, 1, or what? and what hrd program are you using? i suppose i'd best look in the hdr forum, eh?

nice mantis. those shots are so crisp. i'm totally envious. what sensor does that camera use?

It's Nikon D3 Craig with the 24-70mm lens,
i still don't have a proper macro yet :-(
It's not HDR Craig, the sky is from a photograph of a sunset and i replaced the river water with a new version from a CS5 plug in - the trick is marrying them all up and it's a whole lot easier with a graphic tablet and pressure pen..
If i am bracketing then i'll go for 3-5 shots sometimes 1/2 sometimes 1 and do it manually in Photoshop - personally i don't like how Photomatix renders things and i can get a better effect with either Topaz or Lucis using layers..

I think you may like this next one of the Mantis shot low down in the grass, the other shot is a little quirky, but i like strange and a shot with a red hibiscus..
Have a gr8 Sunday :-)
