With a RAW file (or perfectly aligned shots from a tripod) you can get HDR results simply using the layers menu of Photoshop. While I haven't experimented enough to write a tutorial, it's really quite simple.

I use aperture, so I will have to try the other hdr programs. I was trying photomatrix, but it does not allow me to view the save hdr like the hydra that just stamps it trail version. But I was getting better tone mapping results.

I think you have some useful pictures there, Shoturtle - trying to get out!

I love the powerful perspective of the bridge-shot and it doesn't really need HDR as it is good enough as it is. It may need some tweeking of the towers though...


An interesting detail about this picture is the guy with the beige-brown hood walking towards us on the left. If you look at the HDR of the same picture (in post # 2) it looks as if he is walking straight through the wire-mesh, like some kind of superman....!

I like the edit that simple has done of your water-front high-rise picture!

I also like your other bridge shot a lot. It is well framed and has good perspective. I did another edit of it with some more tweeking and came out with this one her.

In another thead the question was WHICH IS THE HDR. According to the results here it looks like the first shot is the HDR. And its a bad result too. Contrasty and dark in the darks. The results of the software to make an HDR are completely up to the OP.

Very nice walter, thanks for showing what can be done. I hope to be able to be 1/2 as good as you and bynx in hdr one day, but I am really not a big PP guy.

Thanks for the kind comments of the photo. I try hard to frame them right the during the shooting, as I really hate editing.
