So I decided to finally suck it up and stop complaining about the limitations of my beloved Canon's AB feature. Here is my first test... 11 exposures on full manual, taken right after sunset last night (I was only planning on five but that didn't do the trick according to the histogram). Thank you,Sean for giving me a much needed kick in the butt :))

Woohoo!.. I'm 1st !.... Yay!!!!!
When using a tripod, I usually shoot six. (-3..-1 2/3..-1/3..+1/3..+1 2/3..+3) I have AEB set for the first three then compensate down for the next, so I only have to touch the camera once in between.... Real sweet job BTW.

shooting with the same camera ... you've "kicked" my butt ...
now to figure out how to get 11 exposures ;-}
rebcam8/onnie 2011-03-12 04:53:53
beautiful shot!!! amazing colors!
remarkable rainstorm 2011-03-12 05:06:45
Gorgeous! 11 exposures? Wow, you may have to wait awhile for a camera to come out with that kind of AB, especaially from Canon ;P
But I agree, Canon needs to do a little better with that area in other than the 1D series. Hopefully soon!

Love the feel of the colors in this. Such a beautiful pallet!
gimmeocean 2011-03-14 09:36:33
You mean you set it 11 times??! You either use a military-strength tripod, or Photomatix has learned some magic tricks with alignment, judging by the fine detail :)

Fabulous tones, brilliant result all over (except for the central lamp, but I assume you wanted it that way?)
Мaistora 2011-03-18 20:10:09
Amazing results with 11 exposures! Didn't even know it could actually be done!
