Photomatrix HDR Walk-Through

Lowell Franga sent me a set of four exposures from the interior of a German church. He asked me to use Photomatrix Pro to demonstrate how I'd go about extending dynamic range.

Well, this coaching session goes a bit beyond Photomatrix. To get as much detail as possible in the stained glass, I composited two tone mapped HDR photos from Photomatrix.

Enjoy!

Comments are welcome.

Cheers,

Mitch

Re: Photomatrix HDR Walk-Through

Good stuff. thanks.

Does anyone have experience with HDR and stitching (three photos for example) for a total of nine shots. Do you have better experience stitching first then do the HDR or do the HDR on each shot and then stitch? Maybe there isn't a difference?

I have used ptGUI followed by Photomatix for panoramas from Washington DC at night.

Stitch first. Then HDR. That's my recommendation.

Cheers,

Mitch
