@Samurai - Thanks for the pointer. I was shooting with an umbrella in one hand & the camera in the other. Also it is a P&S camera.
One doubt I have in taking close ups, can we use flash in conditions of low light? How would it affect the shot?

@shajufx - nice shot of the flower.

Amateur HDR attempt

My first HDR attempt. I saw a video tutorial on Youtube and tried to follow it.

Please let me know how I can improve.

EDIT: A single RAW file was used.

Nutty Nair,(or naughty nair ?) you can use the same umbrella (if only inside is silver coated) to get a bounce flash effect on the less lighted areas while you shoot. , but with a P&S, I doubt how a flash can be detached.

This is dedicated for you !

Yes, should try better outdoor shots. Looks like the rains are around the corner. Will try the 1/3 exposure next time.

@Proxima: It's a pseudo HDR right, because only one RAW file was used. BTW Nice composition!

Yes Clever, didn't know the term pseudo-HDR.

Another one from the same set.

Tried a pseudo HDR , apparently I cant figure out why the center part of the image is showing bright after using photomatix.

That halo can be removed by layer masking in CS3. You can mask that part which is halo with the original image.

Here is one pseudo HDR.
