Pretty interesting! Some results:

Original:


Processed (Hard):



Some sharpening is applied, isn't it?
This thread should be replicated in HDR.
Great job Martin!

Another try.

Original:



Some noise in the sky, but pretty good instant results. Roof and grass are much better:

v1.2 just uploaded. I corrected the slightly messy edges it was creating and applied a modifier to the sturation so that saturation is increased/decreased by the same proportion as the brightness which stops it getting washed out. Here's that tractor again for reference:

I'll give your amazing tool a try ASAP - I really like the results I've seen in this thread! BTW, could you give me some infos about the programming language you're using for this tool - I'm really interested in the technical facts

PS.: I think this thread HAS to be in the HDR forum

Visual Basic - the free express edition.

How it works in short is - it looks at every pixel and works out how relevant it is to every other pixel in the vicinity. From this you can then work out whether it's too light or too dark and adjust it.

How I've coded that efficiently is pretty clever but the basic principle is very simple.

It can get confused if related things aren't joined up - such as if the sky is split by a large tree. It treats each half of the sky separately which can look odd if all of the clouds are on one side for example. Might need something cleverer to fix that but it handles most stuff.

I've done a few more examples with the latest version and put them in a facebook album if you want a browse: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?ai...8&l=38a11a7070
