I like your work; nice combination of color and lighting along with technical excellence. Tell us how you made them--I'm interested.
Well first off, it helps that your are within 5 minutes walking distance of the subject matter, when you live in Ireland. That's 90% of the work done. That still gives about 43.2357 seconds to get the shot.
On the 2 panoramic shots, I used a hasselblad H3D with a Cambo wide DS. They are actually 2 images splice together using stitcher unlimited.
I used Photomatix pro to create all 3 images, but I didn't create HDR Files. Instead I used the exposure fusion tool. You get much more naturalistic results than with HDR, while still getting a lot of detail in the highlights and shadows. The skies on all 3 were really that intense. You get these amazing sunsets in Dun Laoghaire in Dublin where I live. I only started using the exposure fusion tool recently. Before I created the HDR file, than tweeked the exposure in CS4, than tone mapped it in photomatix and finally did most editing in CS4. This took forever, especially as a lot of my images are panoramics. Also I found my self really holding back on the HDR affects to make the image realistic looking while giving the added detail in the highlights and shadows. With the exposure fusion tool, it's fantastic. It really speeds things up. The results at times are amazing before you even start working on it in CS.
