Hi to all the fellow Canon users using this fantastic firmware hack!
I have been using ML for a couple of years now and thought I would share one of my pictures.

This picture was taken by bracketing 7 exposures, converting with lightroom then tonemapping with Photomatix and then blending in various elements for detail using PS CS5. I then sharpened and used slight colour pops with masking. The majority of my images are edited using between 5 and 7 exposures to make sure I have enough to fall back on. I have just installed the latest ML on my camera and look forward to using the auto HDR function.

Here is a link to my Flickr page:- http://www.flickr.com/search/people/?m=names&q=kdsmith.

Please feel free to add me as a contact and if you have any questions on my technique don't be scared to ask :-)

I am hoping to get out with my camera to try the auto bracketing some time this week so will post my favourite outcome. Thanks for the comments!

Great pic!
I really like the final result.
I've now started to learn about hdr tecnique and I can't wait to try some shots with ML  ;D

Nice shot, I have been experimenting with the HDR settings and so far I am very impressed with the results. Magic lantern really makes life easy when it comes to getting a good group of photos for HDR.

I have managed to use the Auto Bracketing feature when out last Thursday. Here is my outcome.

Nice :)
I've still to try out ML's AB
So how many exposures did AB give you for this one.

Professional grade HDR! thanks for sharing.
Noob question. Magic Lantern surely has a built in intervalometer, correct? I'm assuming does to qeue the differents shots needed.....

It certainly does, if you were to shoot a time lapse set the intervalometer for the delay you wish and set to take however brackets at whatever e.v you wish. I have yet to try it as don't want to burn out my sensor - but if were to do so would bracket at 2ev and with 3 shots at 5 seconds between each. I would then batch process the outcomes in Photomatix and edit with Adobe After Effects.

Boats on Threipmuir Reservoir, Pentland Hills, Edinburgh, Scotland.

Here is another image using auto HDR. For this one the camera took 5 exposures at 1ev. All of which were handheld using a pillar to steady the camera.

Can you share a few CR2 pics? I'd like to experiment with them (basically the zero noise technique - http://www.guillermoluijk.com/article/nonoise/index_en.htm).

SDX

Really, really great pictures you've come up with there. The tonemapping is mostly spot on!

Very nice work. Thanks for posting these.

Outstanding; can you provide a bit more detail/tutorial on your workflow/process from scratch? thanks

nuklearpuppy

My processing technique for all my images is by blending in the exposures to the final Photomatix image to make sure I have all the shadows and highlights to fall back on. Here's another image.

Add a dropbox file or upload.ee works as well  ;D
Good footage doesn't make a story any better.

excellent work. Love the natural look you gave it. I dont like when HDR has that over processed feel and you have seemed to make it look realistic and natural but yet sooo dynamic. well done. look forward to more.
