So I finally edited together my first batch of HDR photos. Overall, I know I need work. I can't figure out whether to do natural HDR, surreal HDR, or a combo of both.
Honestly, I'm not sure what I did to each besides stack in Photomatix Pro 4.2.4 and did some exposure, contrast, and color editing in Photoshop CS5.5.
Overall, I know I am a beginner, but these are just my results of messing around with a bunch of sliders which I don't know exactly what they do... Please give advice, in noob terms if at all possible
Also, completely irrelevant, but do you guys like a black border around photos or no? The only reason I have them is so I can crop my photos however I want but they will remain on a constant size canvas for printing.
