    Hdr

    Has anyone tried creating HDR (High Dynamic Range) photographs? When done right they are a fascinating image.
    I have tried my hand at this with fair results...


    I am using a trial copy of Photomatix.

    The standard is still Photomatrix but there are a few out there as good. From what I've been reading NIK is to have an HDR out soon as well. I use NIK software a lot so I'm pleased to hear this.

    I've played with HDR but my tripod isn't the greatest and I can only shoot 3 pics through bracketing. I downloaded a tethering program, which will allow me to shoot multiple shots at different appeture/shutter speeds all remotely. So soon as I get a few decent pics I'll upload some samples.

    I'd try and get a bit more separation in the first one between the clouds and sky. If you use NX2 you can almost accomplish an HDR look with using all the u-points. Second one I'd deepen that sky a bit more. Just my opinions though.

    Here's an HRD I processed this morning.This is a tree that belongs to my neighbor in the back. I'm trying out the new Photomatix 4.0 and that's the reason why the watermarks in the pic. So far I like the program but I do like the selective features of NIK. Maybe there is a way to do this in Photomatix but what I did here was process two separate, 3-batch of pics (Each set at -2, 0, +2 and 1 set @f16 and the other @f11). Brought them into PS and then merged them and brought the best features out of each using masking. Hope you like my rendition of a Fall pic.

    What is HDR? I understand it means High Dynamic Range but I don't know what High Dynamic Range means. My iPhone has HDR on it which I don't know how to use, but I'd like to. If it means I can produce pics like the ones above then tell me how. When I first got it I took pics of the same object that were normal and HDR, they looked the same to me. Do I then have to run the HRD pic through a processor like Photomatrix?
