HDR - Auto - 5exp - 1EV
« on: August 09, 2012, 06:22:44 AM »
Here is a series of versions as a result of ML2.3 - HDR - Auto - 5exp - 1EV. Hand-held, I was in a hurry. I'll be back with my sturdiest tripod.
Taken 6-AUG-2012, Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado, North America, high alpine environment near tree-line, knarly twisted wind blown trees known as "Krummholz".
Gallery with larger examples here:

This shot had best histogram of 5 (4th darkest) ISO100- F11- 1/200sec, straight out of the cam with only lens correction applied before HDR processing all 5 with Photomatix.


A fairly natural HDR version



Version 3 with a bit of HDR fantasy and weather added.



Isn't that fun?

HDR is a post processing technique where you merge multiple exposures of the same shot in order to capture all detail in the scene and still look pleasingly exposed.
5 was my choice in this example. you can use any number you wish depending in the results you wish to achieve.
If you study HDR you'll understand. You see how the detail and color was enhanced compared with the first example, a single shot before merging.

Great dramatic Colorado scenery. Very nice image. Those clouds are just fantastic.

Thanks K! Dark skies with clouds often produce great HDR fruit.
