I'm sorry but this looks completely unrealistic and not natural.

Blue skies in the Lake District - yea, right! ;-)a

LOL. But, yes, it does happen sometimes but I have to admit that this sign at Stonthwit does reflect the norm!

Few more in Martinborough - this time Art in the garden at Aylstone Retreat in the wine area. Three shots, one stop and Photomatix.

An interesting reminder of how very, very good the Sauvignion Blanc is - better and more consistent that strangely labelled French equivalents

A bit further down that road is Dry River winery which makes very fine sauv blanc .... I'm not really a fan these days, more of a chardy drinker

Yes, Photomatix is a good choice when shooting moving foliage. If there is a lot of foliage, use the "Automatic" defghosting slider; but if there is only a single branch waving about, I use the "Selective" method.

That's a nicely placed bench from which to enjoy the view :-)

Hi, So Martin the big question is "In your opinion is Photomatix the best HDR software out there for merging images with moving foliage etc in the scene"?
I love SNS-HDR for the natural output without having to do anything of note within the program so I tend to merge in Photomatix and save a file to get the out put file from SNS.
Thankyou.


Many Thanks,
Russell.

Yes, Russ, that's what I do.

But I am still finding that Photomatix over-saturateds reds sometimes.

Can anyone see a ghost along the first rib in the second image? I have tried deghosting it but that did not change it. What is it?

Martin, I would guess it's just the light. That rib is maybe a little OOF. Just my 2 pence.

The area is blurred due to the depth of field in the shot, and the artifact is caused by the merger algorithm in this blurred edge area - in other words, the artifact is not ghosting, so it is likely that de-ghosintg will not address it. I'd have to see the original images to see how different the merged output is in this area from the bokeh in the originals.

EDIT: What Bill said - OOF.

Thank you Bill and thank you Kirk. Your comments give me some confidence and I will now stoipp worrying :-)

The second shot was an experiment with my new Canon G5 X to make sure I can gt the Bokeh Effect when I want to.
