After my track I cover being closed for 8 weeks due to the weather, well yesterday wasn't a great deal better, dark, wet, & very deep..

So at the end of the day I thought I'd get a few images to have a play with HDR. few examples below, I know most will think I've gone far to much with the sliders... but I do like a grungy look. Copy of versions of each, different process used for each. sorry about the watermarked, used somewhere else.

C & C Welcome...

Thanks

I like #6 the best, the "over processing" works there. I don't like the noise but it isn't too distracting in this one.

Not really digging the rest though. The halo around the rider in #1 kinda kills it for me and the others are very noisy. Maybe if you ran them through some noise reduction software after they were tone mapped and then sharpened them up some...

The last two are my favs. Great framing, great action, and no halos. The heavily tone-mapped HDR style works really well with this subject matter.

Thanks peps, was expecting a slating, not everyone cup of tea, think the images just seemed to look better OTT, the dark, gloomy, wet, shin deep thick mud kind of day, just seemed to portray that mood.....or I was just wet & miserable..lol

Awesome. Not a huge fan of the effect, but it is pretty nice! Works well with the dirt and parts of the riders better than the backgrounds. I am going to have to get out to the track and try some stuff out.

That is why I am partial to the last two. Minimal background to be messed with by the tone mapping effect.

The first of those two is great. I'll say it again... I really usually do not like that style of tone mapping at all (strength mostly) but I feel the style goes GREAT.

The depth is awesome is that one with his leg out. And the colors work great. I might see the slightest bit of halos, but they are amazingly well controlled. Nice image... :)

Cheers Alpha.. the feedback from the riders has been excellent, might have found a great option for those extra sales..
