    Very useful video production and general website to learn step by step how to achieve great processing results. I will try to integrate some of the hints into my future projects.
    Unbelievable how you managed to overcome the technical default of your camera.

    Thanks for the inspiration. May the sound of your shutter never end.

    Another stellar video – and I watched the whole thing! Usually, I would have lost interest a few minutes in – nice job!

    However, it would be great to see the text overlays to see what you are doing – that would be the only suggestion I have.

    Thanks for sharing these – your work is outstanding!!!

    Fantastic work and I am awestruck with your meticulous attention to details! As mentioned above (I am a basic CS5 user) some text breaks introducing the step would be awesome – really interested in picking up some technique tips -;0)

      Thanks for the feedback, John! It’s great to hear that you like the video!

      As a reaction to public request 😉 I have included the descriptive text in my newest “Making of video” again. I am not entirely sure though that stopping the video at many points to include bulks of text would be good. After all, each of these videos has a certain esthetic flow to it, at least in my opinion. And this flow would get lost. So I hope subtitles will do.

      Thanks again for your comment!

    Klaus, if you aren’t the greatest HDR expert in the world I’d like to know who the hell is. Your work is magnificent! Thank you for sharing so much of what you do, you are incredibly gracious and a wonderful tutor. Speaking of which, if you ever put together a training tutorial I’ll be first in line to purchase anything you care to produce. Thanks again.
