Japanese anemone. Beautiful colours. The ones in my garden are much paler. I like the first, wider shot best.

Martin,

Thank you very much. I ran the first picture through your program at default settings. I've been looking for a program like this

Excellent summary:


"Despite great advances in technology, even the best camera often can't come close to capturing in a single shot the full range of light and shade visible to the human eye.

Also, unlike your eye which can adjust as it looks at each area of a scene, your camera is forced to make a single choice at the moment you press the button.

It will do its best to select the most appropriate range but will often be forced to throw away (clip) either the darkest or brightest bits of the picture. The result of this is that your final photos can be a poor representation of reality"


What we want is as true representations of reality as possible. The rest is digital art, I think. Have some questions. One is: Can we choose the size of the files? This one is just 86,1 kilobytes

Again - thank you. What program did you write it in? And what could I have done better

Torgny

I think your original is pretty close to perfect. I'd only process it very lightly to sharpen the detail if at all. Try Detail(10), Contrast(5), Saturation(5), Shadows(1),Highlights(3) to bring out the detail without changing the overall tone too much. You can change the size of the image on the advance settings page.

Martin,

I mean, how do you determine the quality of the picture. counted in bytes/megabytes, not size in centimeters/inches?

When AutoHDR save as Jpeg it uses the default compression - I'll see if I can adjust it. A workaround for now would be to save as PNG and convert to JPEG with something else.
