Shooting HDR with the Nikon D700

I just posted a long-overdue summation of my experiences creating HDR images using the Nikon D700.  It’s up in the menu bar, under High Dynamic Range.  Unlike the Nikon D7000, the D700 (gosh, it would be a shame if there were any typoes in this post) can only space out the automatically-bracketed exposures by 1 stop.  Since I need to take 5 shots to get the -2 through +2 EV range, I figure I might as well take 7 shots from -3 to +3 and use what I need.

It’s been said that a 1 stop jump in exposure provides a smoother transition for HDR software to blend, but I’m not sure if I buy into that.  I would much rather have the option of a 2 stop jump if it meant I only had to shoot three pictures to get an HDR image.  Shooting three pictures as opposed to five means that hand-holding the HDR sequence is more realistic.

But, oh well, it is what it is and here are a couple of images I created using the fabulous Nikon D700:
