A bunch of them could stand some rotating / straightening. That wedding shot by the open window is really really good.

I agree with brownMINI. Angle of a photo need to enhance the shot or be strait. But they all look great with some minor rotation.

Thanks guys. I actually hadn't even noticed that a lot of the shots weren't level (other than the first set), I'll work on fixing that tonight!

I also tried my hand at some HDRs. They came out ok for a first attempt I think.
View from the terrace immediately following the wedding:

A couple of the statue of liberty from the boat tour (all handheld on a boat, that's why they're not so crisp)

That's all I've got done so far with them. The Statue of Liberty shots didn't come out near as well as I'd like, but oh well.

Some studio near the harbor in Manhattan. That's about all I could tell you, haha. Her husband owns a lighting company that handles lighting for a lot of high end parties and events in the area, so to say it was a good looking wedding/reception is an understatement.

I love those HDR photos. They're so "real." I need to try that at some point.

What's nice about it is that you can make it as real or as surreal as you want

Yeah, it's just very difficult to do with people, and I suck balls at still life.

Take a shot, then bracket it in whatever image editing software you use, then import it to Photomatix

That's not what I did with these, but that's something I expect I'll do in the future once I figure out how to do it efficiently. That takes out any issues with images not lining up (like I had with all of mine) and makes it so that you don't have to keep taking 3-5 shots for every HDR.

As long as you're shooting in RAW, adjusting the exposure afterward should turn out pretty well.

I just picked up Lightroom 2, so I'm re-editing all of these. I'll rehost them as I finish them

Hey Vic are you on Mac or PC? If you're on Mac you should give Aperture a go, if you haven't already.
