Having recently been given a 5d I'm obviously a complete novice but I've done some stitch work in CS3. I noticed under ''Automate'' in CS3 there's an option to use HDR, not knowing a thing about this I did some research and find it very interesting. HDR would appear to do away entirely with the need for graduated neutral density filters.
I wonder whether it's possibly to stitch images as well as combine HDR. I realise that for say a 3 image stitch you would also need to bracket a stop either side (or more) for each image. So your going to be needing masses of storage. Nine images in RAW on a 5d would just about fill a third of a 512mb card.

Anyone had any experience of stitching HDR?

Thanks

Hey sorry I guess I should have put this post under ''Digital Image Processing'' instead of under Camera Raw.

Mark,

That's a wonderful image, I'm lucky enough to be able to take six months off this year and spend the entire summer/fall around Utah, Arizona, Colorado and Wyoming. As a novice I'm busy learning all I can, understanding that these sort of photographs are a real possibility is very exciting for me. If I got just one image like this all year it would make me ecstatic.

Try ptgui. It enables HDR and stitching in one step.  Then you can open the HDR output and manipulate it in Photomatix or photoshop.
