Yes, the geometric adjustments will be the same for each image, so the layering will be no problem at all. There are some automatic dynamic range adjustments that you'll want to remember to turn off, but that's real easy to do. I convert the RAW files to DNG (digital negatives, a generic RAW-like format) in DxO and then let PS CS4 stack and combine them for HDR. I do a +2 and -2 in addition to the normal exposure.

Woohoo!

Thanks for that, I was beginning to think that I wouldn't be able to use it with HDR. I would always do HDR first then run the final result through DxO, and find that the program couldn't apply a module to it.

All you have to turn off is the autoexposure adjustments. If you want noise reduction, run it in DxO, since DxO does it prior to RAW conversion. This noise reduction is amazing. Photoshop works with DNG well.

I've not been too fond of the e92 M3s until these pictures. That looks great.

it took about an hour and a half I think. After I finished it, I spent several hours tweaking little things that no one would ever notice, like removing reflections, getting rid of noise etc.

Basically I just took the line tool, and outlined the entire car, so it would be easier to delete the entire background. Then I drew in the shadow under the car. After that I duplicated the car, and did a heavy noise reduction. This caused all details to go away, but since it was a duplicate layer I was able to delete important parts that I wanted to be sharp and crisp, but it left the paint looking smooth. Then I flattened that, then duplicated again, then flipped the duplicate vertical, Gaussian blurred it, and feather erased the bottom half of it to create the reflection on the floor. Then I drew in some grey on the floor so it wasn't so white. After that I used the clone stamp, cut and paste, and paint brushes to get rid of the shadows under the mirror and some other reflections I didnt like. I also painted the windows. Oh ya and did the shadow/highlight effect in conjunction with multipy/overlay.

The blur is nice, but get rid of it on the mountain since that's not realistic. Objects in the distance don't move as fast as objects closer to you.
