Default HDR Experiment

Didnt have any idea about using the HDR technique but it seems to have worked pretty well on some really bland photos. Here's one which I never bothered to edit.

I like the result, it pretty much saved a picture and I also like that the radio antenna tower and wires are gone....really cleaned it up.

Lucky for me I still kept the original. I took this about two years back. The HDR adjustment is a really cool tool added to the Photoshop CS5. Here's another I saved;

The shadow noise gave the picture film like feel so decided to keep it.

I would have a hard time with the top pic, you'd never get me to leave shopping....ooohhh....art, gemstones, did you see that sweater?
I like the photo as well.
The second one doesn't do much for me with the light where it is. Without the light would be cool.

The first pic is a definite improvement and for that kind of shot the HDR really worked. Agree with Lisa.. not too sure about the seond pic but then again thats apretty hard subject to shoot.

I kinda like it with the light, though it gives it a "modern" look. I took out the light for Lisa, hope you don't mind, if so I can remove the pic. Nice OLD feel to it, and yes, a little like film.

@Hawgwild

I like what you have done with the pic. In fact I'm starting to like it better with the light gone. I was also kind of itchy about the placement of light but then again maybe my angle of shooting was wrong. The picture would have looked way better if I had shot it from the right of the screen.

@Lisa

Yes you would probably have a hard time leaving that shop. This shop is in Hunza, in the North of Pakistan, nearly 8,000 ft above sea level. This is the place which most historians have labelled as the most beautiful place in Pakistan.
