10 shot HDR image, the fungi were growing in a hole a broken branch had created in the trunk of a fallen tree, . Next day all was gone so a lucky find :-)

Edit: Original file too large re-sized to 1000px from original jpeg.

That looks really good. Had you not mentioned it was an HDR, I woulda had no idea. :)

Thanks for your comments, I try to use HDR as a discrete enhancing tool and in place ND grads especially where there are skyline features to contend with.

I like this a lot, I'm interested to know why you chose to use so many exposures? and when shooting a range of 10 images how do you determine space between the exposures within that scale in terms of shutter speeds? I've done some experimenting with HDR, but nothing outside of the 3 exposure brackets my 5dm2 does with its in camera bracketing.

Hi, thanks for your comments.
This particular image was taken on an overcast day in a shady woodland and I did not have my spot meter with me so I went for a bit of overkill.
Taken with a 100mm macro lens at f/8 to get a good depth of field, starting at 30seconds working down to 0.2seconds for the final image, approximately halving the speed for each frame.
There was deep shadow within the bole and quite a bit of highlight on the fungi to contend with, the last two frames at 0.5 down and 0.2 secs meant the between retaining and losing the detail on the heads of the fungi.
I normally use 3 or 5 images but will often meter for the shadows and highlights using my spot meter (1degree) as opposed to the camera meter and cover the difference in one stop intervals.
