answered How do you get HDR tiff files from Photomatix/HDR Efex Pro to show up in Lightroom?

comment What is the cause for this diffused artifact around the sun?
@FinerRecliner - yeah, it visible in every shot. I am out of ideas - will leave it to the experts to decide. Almost look like there are a few clouds or haze.

comment What is the cause for this diffused artifact around the sun?
Can you post the 3 unprocessed shots? I get a similar effect when I overcook an HDR but I learned to expect all sorts of unpredictable flaring and undesirable effects when shooting sun against a uniform sky. If you can see the result in the camera preview perhaps there is a way to combat it in the field bu trying different settings. What were the the other settings aside from the obviously closed aperture? If it was an HDR processing issue i would suggest using a different software - I get better colour uniformity in Photomatix but stronger sky effects in HDR Effex Pro...

Have you considered the 6D?

comment How do rear gelatine filters compare optically with “regular” front-mounted filters? Where to buy them? How to cut them?
Thanks! How did I not find that? Already have a bunch of the microfiber cloths so I am set there. Have you used these? Can you comment on the optical quality performance?

revised Is there a correct order to stack Neutral Density with a Circular Polariser filter?

comment Longer exposure & lower ISO or shorter exposure & higher ISO - what gives better results when photographing stars?
Thanks for the additional info @jrista! Much appreciated! I will try to take a shot @30s, f4 and the various ISO and post the unprocessed results here.

Thanks @Matt. I figured as much and Jon touched on this in his answer as well. Once I perfect the single shot approach, I want to learn to shoot good trails (just bought a remote for this purpose) and then I will try "stacking & masking" as well - I suppose I could start shooting while there is still a little bit of light to get a good foreground exposure on the foreground layer then leave the camera set in the same position and wait until dark to shoot the multiple exposures for the stacked background.

Thanks for this great answer Jon! I will try this on the first moonless clear night.

Thanks Matt - I also like to capture the foreground features along with the stars. If I understand stacking correctly it will align the stars (since there is a movement from frame to frame) in the multiple exposures then crop the final image. Doesn't stacking work only for the stars without any fixed foreground features?
