Yeah, this one is definitely better as an HDR than the original. The first one, I do see that HDR made it better, but it wasn't a much needed HDR in terms of where details were lost.

This second image gained a lovely punch in the sense of a natural picture. Very nice.

All the HDR shots in this thread are not overdone in any way and have shown that HDR can and does improve a shot in subtle benefitial ways, improving clarity and color.

I found this site which is very informative if you want to learn HDR and some various ways to achieve your results. http://www.str8photography.com/str8p...Learn_HDR.html

Hi guys and gals!

Always on the lookout for yet another HDR-motive, I shot this scene her today. Now, this is not a photographic 'masterpice' as the motive is far too 'busy' with all them poles and docks in the background, as well as the bridge above. This makes it a rather congested picture.

What triggered me, was the calm sea with the reflections of the sky / clouds and the general 'warmish' athmosphere with the gentle colors here.

BTW - this HDR was renedered in Dynamic-Photo HDR and not in Photomatic Pro! I just had to find out what the difference between them is.

The middel-exposure of this 3-exposure HDR as single-shot is as follows:

Im always amazed how well doing an HDR improves color, clarity and detail. This one is no exception. Nice one.

Your HDR image certainly has more range than the middle exposure, but detail? I don't think so. In some respects yes, in others no. The HDR is quite a bit larger. And while interpolating up is not as good as working with a larger image, after running it through photoshop, it seems to have plenty of detail.

BTW: I like this shot.

That last posted pic clearly shows Helen Keller is alive and doing color correction and other funny things.

another great example of HDR walter the hdr version is far superior over the middle exsposure in my opinion the detial colour and sharpness in every aspect looks fanstastic the reflection of the chain in the water as every ounce of detial .

Thank you Bynx, Chato and Simple for your comments and effort in making this thread an interesting discussion-place!

As I am out of new HDR's for the moment (I have loads of jpg's wainting to be worked on, but that's for the rest of the winter...) I will post som of my HDR's that have been posted in other threads (Mostly in forums like Panasonic / Leica wher only a few members ever look).



This one was shot in late spring - April 09 - befor the trees started to spring foliage...
