Just wondering.. If you're shooting something that has too much movement to do a PROPER bracketed series of exposures, could you cheat and create several exposures from one RAW file?

I'm finding when trying to do a proper HDR, say, of a forest scene, if there's ANY wind or movement, then the images are off and there's a lot of ghosting. PS5 helps with this a bit, but.. Just wondering af any of you post wizards have had any luck with single RAW file HDR's? If so, care to post any examples along with a bit of your process?

Thanks!

There are many posts and examples on here about this subject. You don't even have to go all that far back. Take a look at NavyDoc's stuff. I bet you can't tell what's single and what's multiple shot, unless he tells you.

No, not effectively. The original image is either going to contain blown out highlights or very dark shadows. There is no way to recover deep blue skies from blown out skies. At the same time, pushing shadows up too much just results in poor shadow detail.

When I have a scene where things are moving I usually end up using layers in PS and I manually blend the images together. This way I can control what part of the images I want to contribute to the final image. It also allows me to mask out moving objects.
