Dynamic photo hdri

For the last few days i have been messing around with the trial of

Dynamic photo hdri

http://www.mediachance.com/hdri/index.html

and i have had lots fun and got better results than on other Free hdr software, and it wasnt that hard to work the basics out

The trial consists of two version's one with all the functions but unable to save, and the other a older slightly limited version that puts a small mark on the bottom of your image
the ones that i have included here have all been done with just the one image ( i know not quite the proper way )
Outcome being worth a try and i might have to add it to my ever growing xmas list
please add your opinions about it or add images that you have done

Hello Palms...

I love this program...I found it about 6 weeks ago and two weeks ago purchased it....It certainly adds punch to your photos and you can just enhance...you dont have to go to the extreme...In the full program you can fake HDR just 1 photo with really good results...

You have really done well with your pics...but beware its totally addictive and you end up having to play every day for a while...

Will prepare some befores and afters ...back soon!!!

Patricia............

Before i forget to tell you....how to do the correct way is...you shoot the same scene at different exposure levels...-2 0 +2 are good ones to start with...Look in your camera book and if you see auto bracketing thats what you want ...as you set your camera and it takes the 3 shots simultainiously....then you put them all into dynamic phot and it will create a real HDR for you...then you click on tone mapping and move all the sliders till you find the look you want...hope that helps...if its not clear..just ask!!!

Re: Dynamic photo hdri

Hello Patricia
thanks for the info will look forward to seeing some of your shots
will have a go with the camera when i get chance and something worthy of being photographed
I have been putting the values in manually when i have used 1 image i tried them at -2, 0, +2 and then using the tone mapping
what i do like is the amount of sliders there are to mess around with
and dont worry anything i need to know, I will give a shout in your direction

Re: Dynamic photo hdri

Seems that you are doing fine Palms....I like all the different modes you can choose but tend to use eye catching the most...

Here is a before and after of the boat place at the front of our house...taken in September....I did them the -2 0 +2 way....
