I can take lots of pictures with different exposures, but the combining of them to get a picture with a high dynamic range is becoming more of a challenge than I thought it would be. qtpfsgui isn't as easy to use as I'd hoped and the results I'm getting from it are less than impressive.
I regularly pass the Otahuhu power station near the Highbrook interchange on the Southern Motorway and it looks like an ideal candidate for a night shot with HDR. A clear night, spotlights illuminating the facility and smoke and steam rising into the night sky; it looks quite good! There's a couple of shots that demonstrate my inability to get a good effect here and here. Please, if you have any hints make a comment and help me out.
