Here's an update,

Something bothered me about the grass in the forground, it seemed to be lacking, so I faded a blur and darkened the foreground. With canvas wraps in mind I added some area all the way around. I'm happy with it now, Thanks for all the kind comments.

I love the "content" of the images. Every mechhead's dream. I'm not sure the images really warranted HDR though. You might have been able to get just as good exposure simply shooting in RAW and stacking and masking a couple of different RAW settings.

That would have been cool if I had a DSLR then. This was taken with an Olympus D595 5mp point and shoot about 2 years ago. I had only seen the potentual of the image a week ago. :D

Wow! Not bad for a P&S. Not many of them will allow you to vary the shutter speed manually.

lol, two years ago I only knew how to set 'auto' and push the shutter. :rolleyes: that camera does not have manual mode. Being on the graphic design side of things I know how to use photoshop. I have a strong artist background.

Hey Troy,

I'm having trouble trying to figure out how you do a single image HDR. I always thought you had to use multiple exposures of the same image. I'd like to use your technique on a few of my old images. Any chance of letting us know your technique?

I use Dynamic HDR. (external link) $39. It will allow single image HDR and has powerful COLOR MATCHING (external link) features too, which is how I changed the tone. It does create noise in the photo but I found it easy to resolve. Blur the sky for the most part.

I usually create a duplicate layer (ctrl J) and edit that layer, if using landscapes I blend the hdr with the original below to enhance the colors but keep it realistic.

Tip: Use the bottom three sliders on your left for most of the adjustments. I ran the jeep image through twice to get the affect I wanted. Now that's overkill, but it worked for me. ;)

MeatyO, post one of your edits when its complete, I'm interested in seeing it.

Troy

Thanks mate. Will do...I have a few with blown highlights, but I'm not sure if it'll help those. I'll have a go though.
