I took this back in February. My PP skills are (hopefully) better now than they were back then, so I decided to revisit this photo. Just looking for some feedback on this version.

Thanks for looking,

ryan

This is an HDR (high dynamic range). This type of photo is generally created using 3+ varying exposures to give a broader (more dynamic) range of shadows and highlights than is normally possible using DSLRs.

I'd be happy to give more tips if you had some specific questions.

thanks again,

ryan

i see... hmmm thanks so much for the tip. althought i could not very much relate to it since i dont have DSLR cam but i think i know what you are talking about 3+ exposures...

another question.. what the use of filters? i see people asking if you use filter for this.

i think you can use jpeg from any digital camera to make HDR photos, but, the preferred format is RAW. It's just a matter of taking at least 3 exposures . . . 1 middle range, 1 exposing for the highlights, and 1 exposing for the shadows. you then use a program like photomatix or Photoshop to blend the exposures.

I used a polarizing filter (removes glare from water and darkens blue skies) for this shot. however, to get a similar shot without using HDR, you could also use a graduated neutral density filter (a filter that's darker on the top half and gradually fades to clear).

good luck,

ryan

You can make a High Dynamic Range (HDR) image from JPEGs - in fact, it is probably better to use a sequence of JPEGs, taken with a fixed WB, ISO and aperture, getting your exposure sequence with a variation in shutter speed - the JPEGs also consume a lot less space on your card, and the sequence of exposures will give you the dynamic range in excess of a RAW image. The EXIF data is often used by the apps that create the HDR to get the exposure value data and create the camera calibration curve for the image. Even a point and shoot camera is fine. You just want to make sure that the images are registered - meaning there is no movement of the camera between shots. If there is movement in the scene (clouds, people, etc.) many HDR apps can remove the ghosting created by such artifacts.

Nice capture!

Great photo! Wonderfully generated HDR!

Did you get the originals by doing exposure bracketing?

yes, I typically use the on camera bracketing function to set up my exposures for HDR and use a cable shutter release so that I don't have to touch the camera at all between exposures. I think that is key.

thanks again for all of the responses.
