Default Man's Best Friend II

Once again a single RAW conversion into 5 different exposures and then processed in Photomatix and then Photoshop. It was a windy evening so my long lense (100-400) was hard to keep steady. Thus, not as sharp as I would have liked. Still, an interesting result that I'm pretty pleased with.

If I see something wrong I have no bones saying so. I cant find a thing wrong with this one. Another great HDR. Youre not doing bad Walter. Keep it up.

I just can say the same as in your other thread - amazing improvement over the middle-exposure, well done

And so you should, Walter C - so you should, because this is very good IMO.

Looking at this picture for some time, I suddendly realized that this dog was not an ordinary Golden Retriever.


In reality this is a itsy bitsy miniature-dog, walking in between a handfull of pebbles, tossed in the sand.....

A beautiful shot. And indeed an improvment over the Middle Exposure, but again, THIS is the middle exposure...

Dave, when one of us shows the "middle" exposure we typically don't do any post-processing. We're just showing a starting point. Clearly, the original can be improved somewhat, but that isn't the point. It's only a reference for the HDR output.

When you say "THIS is the middle exposure..." you are really saying "Look at my edited version of the original". Apples and oranges.

I have to ask, Why post the Middle Exposure at all?

I think it was Walter_S who began including the middle image, which I found to be very helpful in seeing how his HDR results compared with what came out of the camera. I suppose if you don't find it useful you could simply ignore it. It seems, however, that many members have appreciated the inclusion of the middle shot.
