View Full Version : First HDR
28th of September 2008 (Sun), 06:37
I have always been a fan of HDR images but just don't have the time right now to to create and post. I have played around with it a little in PS and photomantix. (I think I like the photomantix better)
Anyway, this is the first one I think I have ever finished:

I think it came out well... not too over the top.

Cool shot. I like how it came out.

Thanks for the input. The unprocessed one looks so plain to me now. This was ground zero in NYC. I definitely like my HDR images to just brings out some of the lost dynamic range and doesn't try and push the heavy HDR look too much. "Not too over the top" as David has said.

I do not think this was a proper candidate for a HDR. The whole idea of HDR is to capture the tonal ranges that your camera cannot capture with a single exposure . You could have achieved the same results with a properly exposed image. The idea is to use HDR on a scene with bright highlights a dark shadows.

Its a nice shot but I agree with the comment above...not a very good candidate for HDR...or may be I am getting hooked to little overboard processing with some sharp reflections in the glass... :) and some sharp edges :)

As someone who uses the wrong tool to get the right result all the time, I like it. The way the building looks like it has a cloaking device (can't believe I said that) is very effective.
Good work K.

Well, that was the original idea. I think it has gone beyond that now though. This might surprise you (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_dynamic_range_imaging), HDR imaging was developed in the 1930's. Whatever it was developed for then, has no bearing on what it is used for now. :)

The result pleases my eyes very much, Kronie. This might not be the most orthodox object for HDR but nevertheless, the outcome is great. Consider making a large print on the wall?

I like it, but don't much like the dark part (middle of the corner of the building). I'd prefer that a bit lighter.

I have to agree that this is not the usual subject for an HDR. But I like the way it processed. Except for the dark part on the corner as Rene had pointed out, that I could have fixed but I was lazy!.:)

HDR or not. I think the picture is awesome. A bit underexposed for me though. I ran it through ps with some contrast adjust and then topaz denoise.

Crimson black pushed it hard.. really shows a dynamic range from what appeared to be minimal.. really helps the image pop..
