More MarScaper tests with old image sets. Nothing aesthetically exciting here, but the ability to push these MarScaper files is tremendous. The color and lack of noise makes the output amenable to almost any workflow. These images have fairly intense chroma in some areas, but no clipping or other artifacts you often find in HDR merges.
Both images were intensely backlit, from outside natural light. The contrast often crushes accurate color rendition in areas of high local contrast and boosting the chroma to aesthetically pleasing levels can be an exercise in futility, but not so with these files. Likewise, the uniform areas with lighting gradients are rendered smoothly and accurately and withstand the addition of contrast without banding or abrupt shifts in tone. I also pushed the mid tones and shadows in these to get a sense of the ability to work with larger changes in these areas and see how resistant to noise they were. No problems.
However, I still have a lot to learn with this new application, so these examples, I am sure, will be improved as I learn the software.
