1 isn't awful but in 2 you've completely destroyed the usefulness of HDR which is supposed to allow you to hold the brightest highlights and the darkest shadows in one frame.

I won't discount the mood generated in #2 (it's kind of cool) but as an example of what HDR can do (technically) it misses the mark.

Oh okay thanks. I'll try to lighten up #2. :)

The second one is much better! Much more typical of the HDR process. :) It is a very beautiful image too!

I love #2 in the first post, not because of the HDR like FlyingPhotog said, but because of the mood and tension it creates. I think you've created a great pic unintentionally while trying to do HDR.

You have grasped the concept of HDR in the edit of the second photo.

In the 1st photo there are significant halos around the edges from over processing or from most probably lowering the "light smoothing" effect in photomatix or tonemapping too much in the program you are using:cool:

HDR processing can create many different effects and i think you have nailed it. keep em coming. I happen to be a big HDR fan. What software are you using?

Thanks guys I'm really learning a lot from this forum. I'm using Photomatix to do the HDR for my photo's.

realitysays: okay that's why I have the halo..:) I've been trying to figure out to remove it.. Thanks.

The clouds of #2 in the original post are pretty cool, though I prefer the lighter version in general. Very nice.

I often wonder if I'm looking at the same images as everyone else on this board, sometimes.

I would not appreciate it if someone wasn't brutal with my images. If they were crap, I'd want someone to say. I think all three of these images are really very poor.

The three pictures have all the elements of bad HDR. Uneven contrast, high black point, flat areas, haloing, oversaturated foreground, undersaturated background, unrealistic tones.

You are right there at the point where you are going to suddenly grasp what these programs are all about, soon it's going ot just click for you. You'll get to know instinctively what is going to create a good picture.

But these three particular images, they are very poor. Not keepers at all.

I kinda have to agree with the above post on this one. fantastic sky and I think the picture has some potential overall. but, the processing is a bit garish in my opinion, even in edit. my wife likes that one though.
