    Photo Assignment: HDR Photography and Gallery

    Photo Assignment: HDR Photography and Gallery

    I don't think there are many members (yet) that take pictures and combine three or more images to HDR photos (High Dynamic Range). I would however like to continue with this thread in a hope that in the future, more people will join our ranks and share their views, tips and work within this category.

    On the old board (now closed), we had a couple of threads related to HDR:

    HDR Photography with Artizen HDR Software

    How to get better digital photos with HDR

    There are sevral different programs out there, free to download and try (check HDR at download.com), and among them is Artizen and Photomatix.

    I have the Photomatix full trial version on the MAC and the Artizen on my PC laptop.

    Unfortunately, Artizen is not (yet) compatible with MAC.

    The Photomatix trial version gives you full use of the program but adds the Photomatix logo automatically to your finished images until you buy the software license.

                I think I may be the only member here which currently are doing HDR photographs (or trying my best at doing some good one's).

                Here is a take I did a few days ago in Trondheim at the back of the Royal Residence there, also called Stiftsgården in local tongue.

                    3 new HDR photographs of Albators which came by Trondheim yesterday: first one with Photomatix trial program and the two others with Artizen HDR Generator...

                    Are they good, or are they just not that great?

                      My eyes just can't get used to HD... but it might be because my vision is not perfect (nearsighted) so most of my life, I've seen things in soft focus....

                        Thank you both for the comments...

                        I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, because I don't seem able to get them supersharp like the ones on for example flickr... some of the HDR photographs there are really outstanding, but mine seems ... ehhh... really bleak in comparison. I wish there was another soul in this city which has the same interest in photography and would teach me what I'm doing wrong...

                        I liked Artizen the best as well before, but now, I tend to like Photomatix more. But saying that, I still don't like the results as much as I wish.... probably need more practice and need to meet someone with a similar interest.

                          Thank you so very much Asimut for giving it a try... Personally, I think you have a good result.

                          The idea with HDR is to make those dark areas in the shade more clear, whilst still get correct exposure on the lightest areas. And, that I think you managed to achieve. Look at the detail of the wreck, which normally would have been really dark (almost black) in a normal exposed picture.

                          I'd love to see more, and to become much more proficient in this kind of picture taking. I guess, practice is the essence here.

                            Thank you so much... then I have an allied in you! I would also like to see what others can do and try to become better at this.

                            Looking at flickr, it seems like it's popular to do HDR images in sunset's especially, probably because of the large difference in light and dark areas.

                              Not too bad... I kind of like the second one.

                              I haven't done two shots separated in time yet... that is a new way I hadn't even thought about. Normally, I do both shots at the very same time. Maybe that could be a great idea, as long as I would be able to not move the camera.

                              I'll play a little more... thanks for taking some time to do this with me!
