HDR suitable images... I think...

HDR, I personally find, is way overused...

However, what can be accomplished by some of you is absolutely stunning!

This is one of my experiments with CS3. I would love to see what you can do with the photos that I used.

The photos were shot hand held, with auto white balance and are not quite level.

Re: HDR suitable images... I think...

Frank here is my attempt using just one of the photo's i think it was number 7547
I used one as i had trouble getting the images to line up ( movement in the trees i expect)

I used dynamic photo hdr and the full software not just the fitymi which is for just the one image

You had a hard time aligning the images because I shot them hand held.

Mea Culpa!

Nice job!

Excuse my ignorance, but what is "fitymi"?

it stands for "fake it till you make it " and is part of the main software ( mediahance's dynamic photo software) or as a plug in for photoshop

I have just noticed they have updated so will have to update my version (for free i like companies that do that)

Re: HDR suitable images... I think...

Hi Frank, Nice scene you shot there.
It's been my experience that 2-3 exposures is plenty even with a tripod and no wind. Not to say if your camera has the capability to fire of 5 or even 12 that you shouldn't take advantage of it,by all means. Just when you get them in Photoshop pare it down to a minimum to reduce blur. That's what I found anyway. YMMV.
On this I used to of your exposures and then did some post. I found a lot of purple/magenta aboration in the trees, do you shoot with a Sony? I took that out increased sat selectevly. Blured the sky. USM.
Ended up fairly nice I think.

Re: HDR suitable images... I think...

Crazyfly i agree with you that has come out nice and I have seen other posters say that 2/3 shots is enough so for me i think i will use that info and not try for the 5

The style for that first one is the orton style relatively easy to do in ps
