Default Two HDRs

It was a calm day recently so I was able to shoot some bracketed shots of trees that didn't have too much ghosting.

HDR version:



Middle exposure:



While the HDR version did a good job with the shadows, there's still a bit of sky that's blown out.

I'm not so sure I like this one. It's better than the middle exposure, but I'm still not sure the HDR version works. It's probably not straight, but it's hard to really tell since everything that might be a straight line is at an angle to me, and the artificial pond is curved at this point, so you can't really judge just how much I tilted the camera by that.

HDR version:



Middle exposure:

Both these shots show that HDR and tone mapping really does improve every image. Definately more details in the HDR versions. Im not thrilled with the subject but I like the processing.

I love the big tree in the first one and have tried to shoot it a couple of times, without much success. The second one is a dumb picture, but I thought the difference between the middle exposure and the HDR really significant. So often I see people who post middle exposures that aren't all that that much different than the HDR, a bit more detail here and there and more saturation, but not really significantly different as far as exposure. I was more impressed with the way it handled the scene than I was with the picture.

Fantastic-looking bark. I didn't know a tree-trunk can be an eye-opener.
