Re: Dynamic photo hdri

Great thread here. I've been experimenting with HDR off and on with mixed results. It looks like I could get into this program. Some of them just don't live up to their potential.

Re: Dynamic photo hdri

That looks ok to me Emily, except and you now whats coming yep the fountain shame that, but i expect it could be righted,
I have had that happen on some clouds but was lucky enought to be able to clone it.

Re: Dynamic photo hdri

well, i've been trying to simulate in filter forge some of the results you're posting here. i can get fairly close using a combination of high pass and some highlighting and contrast and additional saturation, but havent quite measured up yet. FF uses a bit of hdri internally for lighting environments and i thought i could maybe play on that to duplicate the results. so far, the best i can do is close, but no banana

That must be a bit frustrating for you Craig, but why not post one anyway?

Re: Dynamic photo hdri

Hello Palms...

Nice results on Janets lovely pic....I bet you are in this program every day and keep popping back to it whilst doing other things as i am!!!! As you have probably tried most of the others too..at the moment i like this one best!

Emily...nice pic and a good first attempt....look forward to more!!!

Here are some from some photos i took at the flower shop "lolodi" next door to the coffee shop....

Please feel free to practice on any of my originals...we might see some different results!!!

Craig...would love to see your progress in Filter forge...do post some examples..

Patricia.........

Re: Dynamic photo hdri

Oh dear this is very addictive
Great find this program Pat, good to see you back, and by the way, I'm glad someone told me what auto bracketing was
I love the way it changes sky in particular, this is one I took this evening from our bedroom window (not very picturesque but it was only a quickie out of curiosity) and I have cropped some of the houses off the bottom, so you can't see the Dynamic Photo Trial logo, sorry.

Re: Dynamic photo hdri

ok, so which program are you guys using the most and which is easiest and which gets the best results so far?

also, just a thought, if someone wanted to start a blog category (see blog control panel on making a new category), i think that would be pretty cool.

and, since you (patricia and palms) asked, i'll post the one i was using to test the filter. the problem is going to be getting consistent results with any and all pictures i use the filter with. i tailored the filter to this boat pic to start and it's ok, but if i put another image in there with the filter... ah well.

so, this posted image was not done with an hdri program, per se. it was done in filter forge in trying to do an hdri simulation.
