    I tried some HDR again yesterday, and this one with the help of Photomatix was so far beyond usable that I instead chose to completely freak it out:

      The one I put together with Atizen was much better, actually one of the first HDR images I have ever done that I'm feeling happy with....:



      Comments are naturally welcomed and appreciated (well, I mean constructive comments and apart from the normal "I don't care for HDR at all"-line).

        I don't care for HDR at all...

            Pakarang I like the last HDR probably because it does not look like HDR. It is just a good photograph with nice detail in both the lighter and darker areas. The only thing I don't like is the side reflector and tail light seem too "hot".

            All too often I think people do HDR so they can "see the difference". I think HDR is just another too and one that has place when you cannot otherwise get a good photograph. If I had a tripod I would have tried some HDR in the jungle where I had patches of bright sky shining through the dark trees. HDR would have been nice to bring out both sky and dark plant details.

              Thank you so much PilotDane... I see what you mean and I do agree with you on the point that the lights stand out a bit too much. I would also say that is the only thing I don't like about it as well.

              I think this is one of the best HDR I have done, maybe because as you so correctly mention, its not fully evident that this is a HDR image.

                Okay, I'm not sure I know what I'm doing with this HDR thingy.
                So here is my try at it.

                  Thanks Paul for joining in... so happy that more of us are trying out things!

                  Which program did you use and which settings did you use for the various shots to create the HDR?

                  Normally, you would use a correctly exposed, an under exposed and an over exposed image to create a HDR. That way, you should be able to make the dark areas become "readable" and at the same time, the lighter areas of the image, also "readable".

                  Try thinking of a situation where you take an image inside a house at day time: while the interior is all correctly exposed, the view outside the window would be all white and washed out because it's so much lighter than the interior light. A HDR image takes care of both those areas and make sure they are all correctly exposed.

                  In your first try above, the dark areas seems to be a bit too dark.

                    'Yep, your right. I didn't get that one quite right. I did them in Photoshop, I don't have a dedicated HDR program yet. But, I kind of get what your saying.
                    Which program to do this should I looking for?

                      You can use Photomatix trial version for as long as you wish... the only offset is that their logo will adorn the final image until you decide to buy.

                      I tried Photomatix and Artizen a long while ago, but chose to buy Artizen. I like their program more. I feel that on an average, their images turns out better.

                          I have just looked, and it seems I do have an HDR program. I haven't even used it, still there in it's packaging. It's called Mediachance HDR, I'll have to try it out.

                            I know some of you might not be big fans of HDR but nevertheless, here are some of my more recent works within this category.... I still have a long way to go before I get to the results I feel more comfortable with....
