Bynx,

Some great photos. I´ve tried and tried myself but I can´t even learn the technique to put two variants of a RAW file together to create a picture with hdr. Do you know of any step-by-step instruction?

I worked a little on the corn picture

Saturation
Blues
Hue -13
Lightness +17

Torgny, I guess you missed this in a previous post here....www.naturescapes.net/072006/rh0706_1.htm

This is a pretty good tutorial. You need a stand alone program called Photomatix Pro. This does the assembly work and makes the final HDR photo. If you dont have Photomatix let me know, also PC or Mac.

The following pics are from Trey Ratcliff - From Stuck In Customs www.stuckincustoms.com

I strongly suggest anyone to read his how to's and philosophy of HDR.

This is my attempt of a local quarry in HDR I'm also very new to it, I hiked up to a look out before the sun came up so I could get the shots

I'm using 3 different exposures instead of one raw file adjusted

I'm still learning all the adjustments, I'm getting a weird light spot in the sky around the building

I like it but you could have taken it one exposure further at both ends. I just put your final shot in Photoshop and used Highlight/Shadow on it. Then unsharp mask. I like your original, this was just a bit more.

There is actually a lot of difference if you look closely. The sky is darker and the trees all show more detail. In fact all darker areas have more details showing. As for being more blurry, what does that mean? I used unsharp mask so it is in fact sharper. As I said your shot is fine as is. I just tweaked it a bit. And these photos are really a matter of personal taste how far you go with the effect. Nice job.
