Nicely composed and framed but I am left wondering whether this scene really needed the HDR treatment.

The processed RAW was a little lacking. So I did a very subtle HDR.

I think some of the most challenging lighting conditions occur when shooting home interiors. Here are a couple of older shots of mine from the Estudillo Mansion in nearby San Jacinto, Ca.

Hi, Where I live now I just could not get back into the use of HDR however soon we hope to be back in the UK where IMO there is a far greater offering of subject material for HDR. Anyway I have the original version of the NIK collection and always thought that the HDR images it produced where without any re-touching very close to WYSIWYG I also have SNS-HDR but although Sebastian has made some minor changes it is to me like the original NIK collection. Anyone here use the new DXO NIK collection and if yes what has in your opinion really improved as far as HDR goes? Thankyou, Russ.


Many Thanks,
Russell.

I use Google HDR Efex Pro 2 and have had good results with it.

The photo of the falls looks a lot like Waimea Falls on Oahu.

Thankyou Harold for the reply was beginning to wonder if anyone was still out there;-)a Wondering if HDR photography is a dying art nowadays with so many other options out there, 5 years ago you couldn't move on a photo website for HDR images. Thanks again, Russ.


Many Thanks,
Russell.

WOW, both are great but I really like the falls.

It is a dying art because the pros (and others who know how) do manual exposure blending. I'm not sure if I will ever get that advanced (or change my ways) but one of these days I'll have to look into that workflow.

Thank you all for the kudos, I've been practicing for a few years trying to perfect my "style". The waterfall image is from the east-side of Washington state.

Here are a couple others from this year.

I suspect that, like me, many are using HDR (or blending) without mentioning it in their posts.

I always use HDR when shooting into the sun (or have bright sky and a shadowy foreground). Here is an example.

BTW, I used nik Effex HDR for this one and I was reminded why I no longer use it. It gives excellent results but (a) it is slow on my PC and (b) this image loading procedure (no drag and drop) does not suit my workflow.

That could very well be it. I only mention it half the time when I post photos.

I definitely use it when shooting into the sun. I need to get better at looking at my histogram. It will tell me if I need to use it or not.
