Default Martin Sykes auto HDR

Thanks to this gracious member, this program is free; and I love the results I get with it.

The first photo is right out of the camera, the second one is the HDR. It really makes the images "pop".

Thank you Martin!

The HDR photo was made using the "automatic" settings; I did not change any of them. This is with my FZ40.

Your correct about it making the picture pop, but the wonderful scenery is the main ingredient

CSA,

how did you made the HDR exactly, I am also very interested, but I have no idea how to made this. I made some experiments with Exposure Bracketing and Exposure Blending in GIMP, but without any acceptable result.

Cheers,

Stefan

@ Stefan

I'm not sure what program you can use under Linux.

Martins program only runs on Windows based O/S

It simple to use

Add you picture / pictures
Choose which type of picture it is
Click the 'process' button
Finished!

PM me if you need extra details Stefan

csa, it's a nice photo of a beautifull place

Stefan, maybe you can use the Martin's AutoHDR under Linux using Wine. It worth a try

Thanks everyone! I'm very happy with this HDR program. I've been so happy with the "auto" setting results; I haven't even started experimenting with other settings.

Thanks also for the kind remarks about the scenery; I'm very fortunate to live in such a beautiful place!
