I was in KC this weekend, and stopped by my favorite place there, and took a few shots.

I did this one with a single RAW exposure, making three different JPEGs, from which I did an HDR.


I need to work on that a bit, but it's interesting to see how well it works.

I really like the processing with the first three. Great detail & color. The lens distortion in the third one is a bit distracting to me though.

Yeah, it was an experiment that didn't do as well as I hoped. Kinda imposing looking, though.

Nice shots- though I'm intrigued by the creation of three jpeg's from 1 raw...
Could you not have therefore,with the appropriate levels,shadows/highlights adjuster etc,not have achieved the same effect from the original RAW file and converted to 1 jpeg..? Or am I just a killjoy....
It does explain,though how all the people are not blurred- as per standard HDR and moving people...!

Very nice. I like the softness of the images. You got the people in freeze-frame, too.

Only the last one is done with 3 JPEGS from RAW. The first three use Auto HDR and are not real HDRs. I suppose that the method would have worked for them, too, but they were stitches, and I didn't want to have to do HDRs on every panel I used.

Maybe I'll do that and see how it goes.

Thanks for the comments.

That means a lot, coming from the master of this genre. Thank you very much.
