Default HDR experiments

Back in March I took the following, the results were a waste of time.

The sky a monotonous gray for most of the day.

I decided to play around with some hdr on them and came up with these results, which at worst allows you to look at them for a couple of seconds longer than the un-processed versions.

Well... I dont like the first one

But I like the windmill photo. Really interesting sky.

Maybe with a tighter crop and level the image, the photo become even more interesting

@ Rui and DML

I have to admit the first picture is a bit too surreal, but it makes the original drab shot sort of eye catching, but can understand anyone who says it's not for them

Thanks for the comments on the windmill, loaded a re-cropped version which takes the road as the horizontal.

Hi Ya Square One - for just playing around I reckon you have done a really good job. I like both of them. Look forward to seeing more of your "mucking about"

Square One, not a big fan of #1 but I think the windmill shot turned out to be a very interesting shot.

Nice experiment

I think killing a little color from #1 will make it awesome.


P.S can you tell me a place where to read up HDR rendering and a software too?

here are my few latest shots..











to be honest , Im still not quite sure should I go with artificial , unnatural but attractive look (2nd photo, but this was also a really lucky shot , Its really idealy scene for HDR ) or should I make HDRs as an improvment of a regular photos (last photo, it isnt HDR really , but It was made in Photomatix , stiching 3 photos with EV -1, 0 and +1 into 1 ).
