Tone mapping try out

I thought i would have a mess around with this image from Morgue file using the single image in dynamic photo HDR
and this is what i got with a few of the different settings
1st is the original if any one wants to try it out for comparison

Re: Tone mapping try out

thank you Amica and Patricia
I used the software Dynamic photo HDR for this from Mediahance

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

They do have a trial version which give you a good taste of the what the full version is like

So really there wasnt a workflow as such just opening of the image and trying different settings out ( messing about with the sliders really, my favorite pastime )

I used the same one, pretty nice program. I just guessed at the f# and played with the sliders. Looks like it would be a good setup for paint effects. The trial version does a lot seems like. I have tried it a few times with a series of photos taken with automatic exposure bracketing, works great.

Re: Tone mapping try out

Palms. thanks for the link. I have tried the plug-in and played around with some annoying shots I took while being on a trip on a freeway. Stunning results, so I just purchased that plug-in :-)

@ Mining Art, that was my thought, too. Very dramatic pre-effects

Re: Tone mapping try out

Mining art nice outcome, Have you tried the full trial version ( you cant save a file), but it does have a"fake hdr" function which is what i used on these ( you dont have to enter values)

pixel zombie shame they don't do a mac version for you and others

Amica glad you are getting some results, please post some for us to look at, still trying to work out the type of images that are best used, I would like to bet you have the updated version, i got my version for christmas so just missed out on it
