Thanks. The in-camera process wasn't great. This one was done in Photoshop's Merger to HDR feature. I cloned out a couple of people and tweaked the highlights/shadows a little.

SNS-HDR is ideal for subjects like these. The rendering of blues and greens is spot on :-)

Yes I used Photomatix to begin with, and do still sometimes, especially if I want an overdone look .... which generally I don't. But SNS is fantastic for landscape. I need to get back to doing more of it. Even bracketing more frequently, just in case want to merge to HDR.

My first time photographing the heather in full bloom in the Peak District. This was was taken from Carl Wark near Hathersage.

Handheld HDR +/-1

I never find heather easy to capture but you have made a really good job of this one :-)

More please :-P

I processed all three of my images and merged in LR, from there I tried tone mapping the single merged image in Photomatix 5 & 6, SNS HDR, and Easy HDR. I tried my best to try to keep them all tone mapped natural as possible.. Your thoughts?

First up Photomatix 6

Hi, Sorry but you did ask!
To me they are all way to far over done, do not look natural at all. Looks like you fell into the trap of add a little more of this and then a little more of that, there are also dust/dirt spots on the LHS between the dark and light clouds.
Again sorry but JMO.
Russ


Many Thanks,
Russell.

I agree - all are overdone. Have you tried SNS-HDR? I get more natural results with that although Photomatix can do more natural results .....

It's good to see that you are experimenting with different processors, that is the right way to go.

However, I agree with russ, they have been pushed a bit too much. If you had posted the original 0EV image, the comparisons would have been a bit easier to assess.

Keep at it, it's worth it in the end :-)

Oops _ I see you had tried SNS ... when I was first playing with HDR I quite enjoyed pushing the boundaries and enjoyed the results. Now I mostly try for a more natural look. Good luck with it - it s fun

LOL, I thought of you last week - not an ideal time for photography in The Lakes -?

An excellent shot for a grey day, Rob. You have not given me many clues but I see slate debris in the foreground so I guess it somewhere near Homnister.

More please :-)
