to fix if you're depending on the exposure blend looking good. The parallax
errors, however, should be fixable (well, as much as they would be with
non-HDR at least - looks like you need better calibration of your nodal
point to handle near-ground subject matter).
450 shots sounds insanely over-done though - you could at least get away
with larger steps in the EV bracketing, 1-stop steps aren't necessary by
any means. That'd cut down by nearly half your number of shots.
