Over the weekend I found a new laptop on Craigslist.  It's an HP dv6000 Special Edition.  Great computer, super screen, and fast enough to do all my photo editing and RAW batch conversions that I want to do.  Best thing is that it was owned by a graphics design student that upgraded to a Mac Pro, so it already had Photoshop CS3 extended version!  It's last years model, he gave me the receipt with it because it has a best buy warranty.  Receipt says it was $1400...I paid $400.  Gotta love Craigslist.

Some of the nice things that came with CS3 is a very user friendly HDR and also a photo stiching program.  I am going to run a stich through tonight to see how it does.  The first HDR I ran I wanted to give it the  most complex picture I could.  A RAW nightime picture with 5 images.  During my longest exposures I had cars driving through, and at one point I had a person walk in front of my camera!  Very little ghosting because of the cars, but everything else turned out good.

ISO100 13sec to 1.5 sec, D3000 RAW

Yes, but you would be extending your time out above 15minutes per image to edit. In raw format this one took less than 10 minutes to put together.

I might have to start a blog for my photography, most of the websites will not host a full sized HDR image.
