I thought i would be helpful here ( as I didnt understand it either ) so i went to wikipedia for a explanation here is the link

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F-stop

Had a quick look, my eyes glazed over the brain switched off and everything went over my head It is now filed in bookmarks till i get round to reading it properly ( probably never knowing me )

Re: HDR messing around

I read something by a member ( sorry cant remember who or which thread ) recently about animals not keeping still long enough for taking bracketed shots,

Well I knew better so here is the outcome done in hdri
1 the orignal
2 using three shots
3 using the B&W filter in HDRI

by the way I would have had enough time to take at least another 2-300 shots before she woke up

Dont think the subject really works for hdr unless someone knows better ?

Not unless it stops breathing

Seriously the little hairs move as the cats chest expands slightly when breathing. It looks as though the head came out real good though.

Oh, and try using just 2 of your captures to make the HDR, that could help a lot.

Re: HDR messing around

Thaks for the tips crazyfly will have another look tomorrow,

do you always use the -2,0, +2, stops ( you can change/select them in hdri) or could you use say 4 or even 6
sorry to put you on the spot, I could always try this tomorrow as well just a thought

Re: HDR messing around

After playing with HDR or something like it for a couple of months or so I feel as though I'm still just getting my feet wet. I don't often find it possible or convenient to bracket but I've found I can get interesting results, even if it isn't real HDR, using one image.

These were tonemapped in Artizen from single RAW files.

Glad to see some space devoted to this subject. Hope I can learn a thing or two. Or three...

Very nice images Dc the tree looks super I took some of a conifer yesterday so will have a try later

I agree with you about learning i have picked a few things up already and I am also enjoying the messing around, and trying the different software out, as there is a vast choice, and all at different costs

Re: HDR messing around

Hello everyone,
I've been playing around with HDR for a few months and here is one I did recently and topped it off by converting it to B&W:

From 2016521182_5aa1dc4791.jpg to 2013389895_f7684c7a86.jpg

I started with 3 images with 2 of them +/- 2ev and merged and tone-mapped them in Photomatix and then finished it off in Photoshop using the Lucisart plugin and converted it to B&W using the Virtual Photographer plugin.

It actually started off quite simple, but turned into a vendetta until I finally got a result that I liked

Hope you like it,
Mark

Re: HDR messing around

Any MacHeads out there?
Tried ChocoFlop yet?

Here's a preview release of the upcoming ChocoFlop, a graphics manipulation app for HDR. As a preview it is entirely free but still unstable and not feature complete. Chocoflop - CoreImage-based, realtime, non-destructive, high dynamic range Image and Photo Editing Application for Mac OS X.

Get it here: ChocoFlop preview release.

Have fun!
