HDR Bandwagon

Now that HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography is everywhere, I decided to give it a go. These are my first attempts, and I tried to not make them look too cartoonish as that is not my style. I tend to lose the detail of the sky in my pics, and finally with HDR can bring it back.

With Photomatix Pro, it is quite easy if you supply at least 3 differently exposed bracketed frames and then use the tone mapping feature to adjust the resulting HDR composite to your liking. Adobe Photoshop CS2 also has built-in tools to do the same thing.

You can really produce some stunning pics that would be impossible without HDR, and I’ll keep experimenting with the lush green settings here in Woodinville.
