Default What??

I don't believe it!

Chato has gone HDR!!!

And a good result you have there as well, slighly (musn't be too hard on the man...) overcooked of cours, like every 'beginner' of HDR - but never the less. A good product and very dramatic colors in that sky with teriffic clouds, if I may say so.


Welcome to the community, Chato!!

Yeah, Chato. Great that you finally picked up Photomatix to try out
I hope you'll continue to experiment with this and get the result you're after.

LOL! Did I ever say that HDR was wrong? And I must admit to a curiosity about the process - CS2 isn't worth a damn thing when it comes to HDR...

Good HDR, in my humble opinion is when you don't know that HDR was used.

Guys, I just wanted to say thank you for starting this thread. How did you know I was just beginning to experiment with HDR and had a lot of questions? I had been using the HDR function within PSP 12, but wasn't pleased with its versatility. I downloaded the trial version of Dynamic Photo HDR and plan to do the same with Photomatix. With dynamic, a rose from this afternoon and its center file (crop applied to final version)



Center version of the five-shot stack, uncropped.






I'm going to download photomatix in the next few days and try it before buying one of the two.

Paul

HDR photography on a flower? I wonder if that would work. I mean, the wind can be a real killer here. so be sure sure the wind is almost non-existent.

The problem with doing HDR outdoors is the wind. It moves the flower so each shot, while done from a tripod, the flower moves and is never in the same position. Lining up the images get tougher and you end up with a blurry image such as you have there. Id recommend doing it inside where there is some control over any movement.

Yup raw is good. I cant do raw so I never think of it.
You can take any jpeg and convert it to a 32 bit mode and open that file in Photomatix and use the sliders to come up with something new. Give it a try sometime.

My FZ-28 can do RAW too, but I never bother - its too much work and takes up a lot of space as well.

But would you care to elaborate a little more on this advise you are giving here, Bynx? How to, kind of - I really would like to try this, but don't know how.... ... does one convert jpeg to 32-bit mode??

Using what, Bynx? - CS2 and PS Elements 7,0 is what I have on my computer...
