  • Using HDR software on a single image

    Well nothing new here but I found this fairly interesting. The first photo is a shot at the camera's (Nikon D7000) exposure. The second photo is the same photo but this time filtered with Nik Efex Pro. The third is a composite of 7 photos using exposures of -3,-2,0,+1,+2,and +3. and blending them with Efex Pro

    Re: Using HDR software on a single image

    Hey Phil. I've been doing HDR effects with one photo for ever with Color Efex Pro 3 using the Tonal Contrast setting. I use a bunch of actions I made with Pixel Benders Oil Filter or Redfield's Perfectum along with the Tonal Contrast and they work great together. I've tried all the other HDR programs and Color Efex Pro is my favorite. Great software.

      High-dynamic range image without HDR software
      by shumski
      Yesterday I played with an interior image and achieved a good result as I think.

      The original image was taken during a bright sunlight so there is a lack of details in bright areas and the view outside of window is overexposed.
      The reason for that is a narrow dynamic range of camera....

      HDR Software Question...
      by bob2
      I'm looking to learn HDR and what I have read so far I have these two to select from, Artizen HDR and Photomatix HDR. Having tried to compare the two I found that one has this and the other has that. I have CS2 HDR Merge but am not really impressed compared to photos I have seen using either of these...

      Difference between HDR and faux HDR
      by Boneappetit
      This question had been running in my mind for a while, so I would like to know if there's a real difference between shooting different exposures of an object or creating different exposures using Camera Raw?

      Long story short: Some (purists) don't accept works done, out of a single photo...

      Photomatrix HDR Walk-Through
      by gmitchel
      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,...
