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 them a lot. I think you'll get some negative comments but I think they look really cool.

My only suggestion is to post just one or two photos, and then add more later in the thread.

Did you process these before putting them into photomatix? I'm still trying to learn how to get those bright colors.


Thank you. bw!

Thanks Mike... done with Photomatix, did it two ways. One merging using photomatix. The other using CS4 to merge to HDR, them open in Photomatix. I felt the second way worked better for the type of images they were.

I'm sure I will get some negative comments, It does seem I went a bit mad with the sliders.. but I felt with the type of images they were, the grungier look worked better.. the riders liked them this way

I don't usually like the grunge look, but these are nice. Maybe I'm prejudiced because I used to race a few decades back. I really like the extra light on the bottom of the bike in the first pair. Shows the muck. So much fun. :) The last one is great!

The strong treatment for me works well with the composition. I like the grunge look when done to compliment as you did here. A few are a tad dark for me, I think more contrast could be had if lighter, I give these a double thumbs up!

yey taken from 1 image, shot in raw, then the two further images are taken once the exposure is change, merged in cs4, tone mapped in photomatix..

Some extra light was used, two 580's off camera

Wow..I'm sure someone will mention 3D at some point (on the last two), but take a look at that leg in the first one! The wide angle lens makes the leg/foot just jump out of the screen at you. Impressive!

I'm REALLY green to the whole HDR thing - I repeat failure after failure to do a PROPER HDR shot. I can fake it pretty good, which I did above, while trying to keep the results natural and believable. Added lens blur to put more emphasis on the action of the bike and rider, but I'm on the fence about the results. :/
