testing out the new 2.3 rc2 and the automatic hdr feature
« on: July 16, 2012, 04:23:40 AM »
Hi all,
today i taked some shots with the new magic lantern. I've used the automatic hdr function. I love that function, because especially in the night hdr photography you don't know if all the lights are covered, or all the dark areas. Sometimes this function gives me a lot of shots, sometime not, it really depend on the scene. and this is fantastic, because with automatic you are shure you have all shots you will need later. When i'm not in a hurry i use this function, with small 0.5 step of exposure between each one. And then, when on my pc, i can use all the shots, or only some of them.
Here is the result, did the hdr tonemapping with photoshop and lighroom (really like the "quite natural" result of this workflow). And some little retouching for removing the bag on the left side

Hi In this case I like the left one too. That dark sky and contrast are pretty amazing. I would add just a tiny bit more detail in the highlights and leave it. I'm a more conservative HDR user. I prefer a more natural look and use HDR to 'fix' camera capture limitations.

de bonne chose , la nouvelle versions de ML  promet d’être au top.

Sceamer sympa ton Flickr. j'aime surtout la vidéo en  Timeslaps. Le traitement me parait effectivement un peu prononcé, je serais du même avis que  B4rt

Incredible detail. I like the left image as well... more nature image and
color.  I look forward to trying this ML tool as well.  Thanks for the post.
