Experimenting

As the title says i have been experimenting, I wanted to know what the difference Is when i used 3 images taken at +0.00, -0.70, and +0.07 (camera settings) and then using just one of the images loading it 3 times into the software and manually putting in the values 0.00,+2.00, and -2.00 I did expect a different outcome, What do you think ?

I took inside shots as i also wanted to make sure that a problem i was having was due to poor light ( getting banding down one edge ) That seems ok

and as a added bonus i have just noticed buds on the poor cactus

1. original image 0.00
2. using the three images
3. using just one image

Hello Palms....

Very nice still life pic....For me number two is the best where you used the 3 pics...more color depth...HDR is so much fun!!!

Re: Experimenting

Thanks Patricia,
It is a experiment that i will retry when i get (hopefully for xmas) the full software, And i quite like the third one better (with one image) but that could be down to different monitors

Re: Experimenting

Hi Palms,

If U check the histogram of the hdr U can deal on witch is the best way, I agree with Pat the second one is nicely saturated I like this good composition. If U set EV at the camera that is not the same than set it by the software(IMHO). I've tried with a raw, I've had a shot (call it: opt). I made the opt -2EV by the camera as well and have checked to set the opt to -2EV at raw converter there was difference between them.

Re: Experimenting

Palms - count me in for liking #2 better as well. Nicely saturated colors and a broader range. Nice image as a whole.

Re: Experimenting

Palms, the shadows to the left of the oranges (tangerines?) are more pronounced and the wood in the knife holder is more saturated in the 3-image photo. Nice to see some of the variations possible.

Re: Experimenting

Thanks for all your input, What surprised me was that there was not as huge a difference between the two as what i expected ( i expected the one made with one image and inputting the brackets would be more like the original ) Mind you when time allows i have some more experimenting to do
C.J. they were Clementine's and with a bit more thought i should of turned the one on the right around and wiped the bit of soil off the pot
