Default The Final Version

The first two photographs were posted in the HDR section explaining the problem I had with light glare on the wall (photo 1) and what I did to resolve it (photo 2). However the circled portion of photo 2 still remained a problem. The heavy burning left brown stain marks which did not look right. By making 2 more HDR's at different settings and blending them in I was able to control that area. As the result photo 3 has a total of 4 HDR's blended in as one. This is what I call Frankenstien HDR. Making 4 or more HDR's and using bits and pieces to make the final version.

It does look great.

How long did the final version take you? I'm guessing assembling the right 'bits & pieces' requires quite a bit of skill and time?

Thank you for your comments. At first it was time consuming. After using the procedure a couple of times, you basically understand the settings and what they can do. Masking layers requires the main time....
