Yosemite HDR

It was a beautiful day at Yosemite last Friday. Still snow on the ground, but t-shirt weather nonetheless. I know this shot has been overdone, but I thought a pano might make it a little different.

I also tried a new workflow in processing my HDRs:
  • Convert each of the three exposures from RAW to PSD in Photoshop CS3. Use same settings for each.
  • Tonemap the three PSDs in Photomatix. Save as TIFF.
  • Process the TIFF in Photoshop CS3. If pano, use same settings for each panel.
  • If pano, merge the TIFFs in Photoshop CS3 after tonemapping; then process.

This workflow seems to have eliminated the alignment problem I was previously experiencing with Photomatix.

Re: Yosemite HDR

That's a nice shot of Tunnel View. I'll be there late May...can't wait.

You're so close to Yosemite...

Re: Yosemite HDR

May will be a great time, and the dogwoods should be in bloom.

FYI. They cut down a few of the trees that used to stick up in the "tunnel view". Now the panorama is a little less cluttered.

OK, you totally wrecked me! Great HDR, I've tried to do this and just can't seem to get it. Very nice.

Regards,

Richard

Re: Yosemite HDR

Gosh I love HDR! It never gets bad for me. It just goes from looking realistic to a point where everyone starts to wail that it is overdone and at that point it looks like stunning art!
