McHargue Mill (HDR image)

Here is one I shot a couple of weeks ago. 3 images processed in Photomatix and then some cloning out a road and guard rail.

Thank you. Photomatix seemed to bring it together.

Thank you Swampy. I was a little disappointed that morning, but I like the way this one turned out. It's definitely getting hung on the wall.

Wow, what a compliment! Thank you.


Some info on the shots. This is McHargue Mill located in the Levi Jackson State Park which is just outside of London, Ky. Shot with my Canon 20D, ef24-70 f2.8 L, and tripod. Exposures @ 1/13, 1/25, and 1/50 @ f8 and ISO 100. The RAW files were brought into Photomatix and tonemapped. Cloned out a guardrail and road, a slight levels adjustment and then sharpened.

Re: McHargue Mill (HDR image)

The enhancement of the detail really helps show how the sunlight plays on the leaves, and brings out the texture of the cabin, making a truly wonderful image! Swampy and crazyfly are right - it belongs on a calendar and looks like a Kinkaid piece.

I work with raw files a lot, and I was wondering whether you made ANY adjustments in Camera Raw (or whatever converter you use), or brought them into Photomatrix unaltered.

CJ - thank you very much for the detailed comments and I'm glad you like it.

The 3 RAW files were brought directly into Photomatix Pro without going thru ACR and yes, that's the converter I use. Tonemapped and then saved as a 16bit tiff to bring into Photoshop for the rest.
