Pitbullo,

Delicious shots, I like the first one a lot!

Thank you for your reply!
The last two of yours are very very good! Where the last one should be in a frame on the wall! Very pretty!

The first one from me was taken at a small island called Bomlo, at the west coast of Norway, last summer. I used a tripod (the second picture is taken hand held) and a remote shutter. What isn´t shown in the picture is the monumental amount of mosquitos around! A peacefull shot, taken in the middle of a mosquito frenzy! I was bitten to pieces, but it was worth it!  :D

The wounds have healed, and in two weeks, I´ll be back at the same place for vacation!

Very nice Mat, imagine if the background was less busy. 
I mean if you're going to modify the picture in use of HDR,
go for it and find a clear background or location to make
the car or your next subject stand out.  Great shot, love
the dark silver hint on the blue, very delicious.

In camera for the 5D Mark III I think only does 3??  I could be completely wrong.  I should have consulted the manual before I typed.  My 4 shot deal I added a file :)

Here's a single shot HDR from one raw file, the only way I like to do them. This is a bit more processed than I'd normally do, I prefer a more realistic look.

Done primarily with ACR 7.x in Photoshop and a little NIK software tweak to provide more of the typical HDR look by adjusting local contrast.
Original is included, straight from DPP, no adjustments.
Shot with 60D in manual mode.

My first attempts at HDR... I processed in Photoshop CS5. It is very difficult to make anything that looks "real" with Photoshop's HDR processing.

They have potential. I'd reduce exposure a bit and maybe increase contrast or combo of both. One thing that makes photographs look real is some black clipping needed... HDR's expose everthing, that seems unnatural to some people.

I did a 3 minute PP on it... not sure if it looks better to you... but the idea was to make it a bit more natural.

yup, off to a pretty good start.
PS is not quite as easy to use for HDR as specialized SW but it's flexible, even when combining multiple bracketed images.
Messing with the tone-mapping you CAN create a fairly photographically realistic looking image by keeping the DR compression to reasonable amounts; there are a few ways to do that.  All depends on how "cooked" you like your HDR final image to look.

I still prefer to expose to retain hilite detail then push all the shadows in post using one good raw file.. but that requires using a very noise-free camera system like, dare I repeat myself yet again, a D800 or D5100.  In the same area as the shot above I took another one of a charred black tree, with the charcoal parts in the shade.  I shot it with both the 60D and a D800.  I can make a "realistic" HDR from either shot but with the D800 there is far more crisp textural detail in the dark areas because no noise reduction is required and I can still lift the darkest areas much more if desired without seeing pattern noise like the 60D produces.

Thanks for share, I'm getting some great inspiration

This is a nice scene but the HDR processing is way overdone.  Colors look really unnaturally saturated and the haloing is very prominent.  I like the scene and composition but would suggest toning down the processing a bit.  Looking forward to more of your work!

pedal is too close to the floor on these for my taste.  IMHO the best HDR is the one where the surreality of the shot comes from the enhancement the dynamic range, and not from the over saturation and sharpness.  When an HDR is overcooked all anyone sees is the processing.  If a fellow photographer goes "WOW" first, then syas "is that HDR?" then you are on the right track.

with my buddy Ilko Allexandroff
(Sir-Sky) he's got the HDR down pat.

My first attempts at HDR... I processed in Photoshop CS5. It is very difficult to make anything that looks "real" with Photoshop's HDR processing.

I love these. They are refreshingly clean and bright, and not the usual moody grunge that has become very cliched.




Spot on, first time out.






Well done, Sir.

Hey Everyone,

This is my first HDR attempt. I used multiple photos and photomatix to do the post processing.

Nice stuff, I like the reflection, it's a nice touch. 
The sky with the blue line is a bit much.  In 
process mode in Photomatix, lower down the
Saturation Highlights setting and increase or
decrease Micro Smoothing as needed.  You
want to erase that blue line just above the tree
line.  UNLESS you're wanting to just have fun
and blow it out.  Then in photomatix, use the
Grunge look and have fun !

Keep at it, and keep positing the pictures. :)
Remember, HDR is what YOU like,
NOT what others think.  ;)

Just a tip.  Hdr is most useful as a tool, not just a processing technique to make an uninteresting composition and or dull shot look better, and tools have certain uses.  Where Hdr shines is in creating higher dynamic range then the camera can obtain from a single image (hence the name).  I'm not saying your HDR is bad, I'm just saying that you use of it is really not necessary  in this shot.  You could get the same effect through a little local contrast and tonal contrast, so in this case you are using hdr as an effect rather than a tool.  When shooting hdr look for comps with a lot of dynamic range.  Just a friendly tip;)

Here are two examples of different processing techniques.  The iceberg was a 3 shot bracket, processed with Nik HDR Efex Pro 2, careful to keep a natural look.  The church shot was a single shot HDR processed with Photomatix Pro, processed for dramatic effect.

Nice work, Viggo.  Your HDR style / preference is similar to mine.  I try to have images as natural-looking as possible, and I tend to use HDR only when the lighting situation is pretty challenging.  Here are a couple recent HDRs

Timothy_Bruce - beach, awesome, love the color, bold use of HDR, that is my style too.

nefarious - wow, bold shot, I'd be afraid of that train would run me over. :)  really like the steam, that is cool.
 
Viggo - nice stuff, natural is part of HDR, no excuses needed, it's what YOU like and that is what matters.

Ryan - nice blue skies, almost looks 3D.  I like a lot.

Keep up the great work everyone!

Man I wish I had my HDR know-how when I was in D.C. ~ all that stone makes for great HDR shots.  Nice picture, thanks for share.

Please critique thank you :)
Tell me what do you like/don't like about my photograph so that I can learn more. I am only a student so I can't afford a wide angle lens and stuck at 550D which is still a great cam.
550D 17mm f/8

Sun is a bit blown out, but then again that is the trade off for HDR, so I try to avoid direct sunlight like that, wait until the sun goes behind a cloud or is about to set.  Keep up the great work!

Peace! 8)

7 images shot with 7D + EF-S 17-85 at 24mm, ISO 100, f/16.  Shutter speed varied in one-stop steps from -3 to +3 EV

Goal was to get natural-looking result with details in the shadows on the right while keeping brightly lit sandstone shoreline from getting blown out

This one is great. Great handling of the range, without the oversaturation that I think many of these type of shots normally get. How and where can you see the DR range (since you mention 18+)?

Thanks for the compliments.  I guess I shouldn't really say 18 stops of DR because it is actually probably more than that, but I can say 18 stops of EV because i know that I bracketed 7 shots at 3 ev spacing per shot. -9,-6,-3,0,+3,+6,+9, and -9to+9 would 18 stops.  As for software, photomatix and photoshop.

I'm curious if you wouldn't mind going into a bit more detail.

I was looking mostly before at things like photomatix and other apps...to do HDR...that just basically overlaid the images...and you had some basic controls on how to blend them over the whole image...but not in targeted areas.

I've seen a tutorial on youtube..showing one guy that used photoshop...and he was taking each image of the HDR bracket set...and making each one into layers I think...and that way..was kind of 'painting' them into the main image...for instance I'd say he would have done that to regulate the light coming in from the window...but another image for the interior....with mattes and windows on each area...etc.

Is that how you use photoshop on these.....

Would you mind going into a bit more detail of your workflow on these...they really are amazing and I'd love as a noob to get some info on how you processed these.

One area I was thinking HDR would be GREAT...would be for real estate imaging...for a picture of a room...you could get the room exposure right, and 'fix' overblown lights from the window in a targeted manner...etc.

Thanks in advance,

First off thanks for the compliments.  HDR (used right) is a great tool for real estate (I shoot it for my realtor girlfriend all the time).  As for my workflow, it really depends on the images, but I definitely use both techniques you describe above.  I mask in parts of the original images as well as tonemap and exposure fuse.  Each techniques has its pros and cons, and I find that combining all three, along with everything else photoshop can do gives me the best results.  I don't really love trey ratcliffs cartoony style, but his basic workflow is a pretty good place to start, as he goes over some of the concepts I mentioned above.  I think he even has a free tutorial on his website.  Check it out.  http://www.stuckincustoms.com/learn-photography/ (http://www.stuckincustoms.com/learn-photography/)

Here is another shot from last weekend, with all the above concepts applied.

Lots of good shots guys, although I think there are constantly three big things that a lot of you can work one. 1) Using HDR  to capture DR that is impossible with a single exposure, and not just as a detail enhancing effect. 2) reducing the muddy gray tones in the final image as well as getting back to a sharp image.  3) Overcooking the light adjustments such that there are no bright and no dark areas.  It always looks bad to me when the sky is darker than the subject/ground.

That being said, keep up the good work, here are a couple new ones for me...

If you have ever seen Easy Rider you will recognize this crypt (Peter Fonda is sitting on the statue's lap crying as if it is his mother).  From the legendary Saint Louis Cemetery #1 in NOLA.  The clouds that day were pretty surreal.

Scene wise, you can get a little bit frontal with the two obvious subjects or get another subject.   Clouds are good but looks incomplete, overexposed and over-saturated just like the whole scene.  Stopping down by 1 or 2 EV would do it nicely.  Overall, you might want to rethink the the framing.  A wider angle will certainly help you.  Having a good ND filter will also help.

Lovely shot from Miyajima! I was there this summer, but only during daytime when the sun made the light very harsh.

Here is a couple of HDR shots from a very small church in Taormina, Sicilia (Italy). Tried to make them seem less HDR'ish. Processed first with Photomatix and then with Photoshop. Shot with 450D.

My only other attempt at HDR failed miserably back in 2011, when I took 3 bracketed RAW exposures of one of the bridges over the River Liffey in Dublin whilst standing on another bridge - was a dull day and the result was not great - so I put it through a '1940s Ad' Toon-It filter and got this (below). I know it looks cheesy but some of those plug-in filters for PS, especially the ones that simulate old 35mm film (grains, emulsions etc.) look interesting.


I love it. One of my other hobbies is artistic painting, and i sometimes experiment with special effects on my photos. Am not as much of a purist as some phohtographers are, (or maybe i am just not as good). I have altered some of my photos in photoshop that didnt quite make the grade, and turned them into something interesting artistically speaking.

Composition wise, it seems a bit forced.  It might have been good to leave some breathing room on either side of the image.  HDR wise, well... I'm going to try to be nice.  The gamma is WAY too high -- this makes the shot look really flat.  The colors are not natural (orange skin tones, clouds have some magenta to them) and seem overly saturated, but this may be due to the punched gamma.  And there also seems to be ghosting in one of the subjects.

Have you thought about adjusting the photo in ACR or your raw processing software of choice?  The sky could use a grad filter, and HDR may not be necessary if you can recover enough detail from one of your shots.  If not, try reducing the gamma... you'll notice a big difference.

jwilbern, very nice photo.  How did you overcome ghosting in the waterfall?  Was that a single exposure blended with others?
Thank you pierceography. I blended 6 images at one stop apart with no deghosting needed. I have not found any type of deghosting to be necessary in waterfalls or other fast moving water. I used Photomatix 4.
Title: Re: Post your HDR images:
Post by: pierceography on November 04, 2012, 09:46:27 PM
Very nice results.  It hardly looks like an HDR shot, which is a compliment.  I love the exposure and not overdoing the colors/strength as most (myself often included) tend to do with HDR.  Just a really great photo.  :-)

I too use Photomatix 4, so I'll have to keep that in mind with water.  I've been reluctant to shoot water, given the ghosting obstacles that need to be overcome.  Looks like photomatix handled it like a champ.

Orioncroft well done... good use of reduced saturation.

However just taking your fist shot as an example, the sea to the left is very low contrast compared to the brick on the right, so the eye pulls to the right  more...

I would experiment with a layer of a nice single exposure (one of the frames you used to HDR) and blend/ layer it with the finished HDR and mask away the HDR portion of the sea, showing the regular exposure (which would be higher contrasting)...

This is not a criticism, just something that could open new venues for you?

Thanks for your kind comments Patrick- both these pictures are four or five frame stitches, so ( the originals) are very high megapixel, but taken on a large pixel camera (5D). I think this helps achieve the colour depth. Not sure if an ultra high pixel camera would achieve the same effect in one frame.

to these other guys and gals, but I have fun
and that is what matters.

I'm yet to buy my first L lens.

As for settings... this is how I do
mine: (Not my video, but I found
this a while back and he covers it well)
HDR photography tutorial Canon 60d Photomatix image processing (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9OsVF7wJJNs#ws)

Note: there's other ways to set bracketing on a 60D
the Quick Menu setting is faster.

Try using DPP first.  It has an HDR tool that's very easy to use.  I use it mostly because it's easy to achieve a natural look using it besides from the fact that it's free.  Once you decided you wanted to try advanced HDR, try Photomatix.

Very very nice, a non-landscape, still object HDR,
very cool.  Keep at it, in fact that reminds me of a
guy that went to an art museum, (One that let's

HDR shots of painting, his "blues" came out
looking like the blue on the bench vice in your pic.

Keep up the great work!

I don't understand why people take HDR photos just for the sake of it being "HDR". Good composition leads to a more striking image than having bad composition and high dynamic range.

I agree, whole-heartedly.   It is a great tool to expand tonal range if used "tastefully"!
Agreed, And it seems like it would be the combination of the two that would make the best sense... Why shoot something as HDR, if there is no composition?  Why shoot any photo with no composition?

I set my 5D3 to do HDR...it has 3 bracketed shots, plus the jpg it puts together. I threw out the jpg is did......took the 3x bracked RAWs, exported to full sized jpegs and loaded into the program...but get tiny, crappy pics coming out.

To reduce the visibility of the halo effect, you could use Photoshop to layer mask. Many ways to do it but one of the ways you can try is to layer mask the sky and trees with the original photo.

My advice... stop making the rest of us look bad.   ;D

Great job, bold first try with a night shot, landscape is great!

Please post some of the other shots, I know you have more, we need to see more so we can make a better result / overview.

Thanks!  Used a 5d iii with at 24-105.  Each was a made with 7 shots from -3 to +3 EV shot in RAW and compiled in Photomatix.  I got really lucky with the weather.  15 minutes before both shots, the sun was hidden behind clouds and the reflection off the lake wasn't nearly as impressive.

all about, GO BOLD or GO HOME!    (Does not hurt to

Thanks for the feedback! It is definitely worth checking out the 14mm samyang (bower/rokinon/etc). If you end up getting one, make sure it is a good copy. Their quality control isnt like canon, so if you are not blown away by the lens, exchange it for another one. Also, dont worry about the manual focus. At 14mm, it is easy once you get the hang of it. With 10x magnification in liveview, I have never had a problem getting perfect focus.

Remember is supposed to be

blown-out

over exposed
burnt
double exposed
triple exposed
highlighted to the extreme
etc.
... one I did two weeks ago,
... was steamy hot and a heck of a
hike to this small water fall.
But well worth it.

A photo of a waterfall I did a year or so ago. 

It's NOT supposed to be:

Blown out (the highlights at the top are just foggy mist, so there was no more detail than what I show)
over exposed
over saturated
crunchy
blurry
ect.

(to each his own I suppose)

Agree with the above.


HDR is simply a method to obtain more detail in shadow and highlight areas than a standard single exposure would allow.


For some reason, along the way, it's been hijacked to create hideous cartoon-like pictures that bear no resemblance to a photo.

Thanks.  Although most of the credit should really go to the HDR processing method I used - creating 32-bit tiffs in Photoshop CS6 and then reprocessing them in ACR makes it very easy to create well-balanced, realistic looking HDRs.  Someone here posted B&H-produced tutorial of that functionality awhile back and it really streamlined my approach to HDRs.

Edit: So it was actually Adorama that made the tutorial I'm referring to, highly recommended viewing if you own a copy of CS6 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-JT1b12BBHs#ws (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-JT1b12BBHs#ws)

Thank you kindly!  My first attempt at the technique.  I've usually shied away from HDR as a bit of a gimmicky technique.  I'm not very fond of the usual "over processed" look of so many I see.  But I've become something of a fan of Trey Ratcliff, who has really perfected the process of producing natural looking HDR images.  I started with his tutorials, many of which are free at his website.

Horseshoe Bend in Page, AZ. Photos were taken on October 14th last year at around 9:30am.
Details: Canon 5D3 and 17-40mm f/4L at 20mm. Three RAW shots at f/8: 1/30s, 1/125s, and 1/500s.
Merged using DPP and just tweaked a little - I like taking pictures, not PPing :)

A little experiment in trying to match the overall luminance of the scene to how we actually see things.

The harshness in the neck hood is because the damn horse wouldn't keep still long enough for the drive of a 5D  ::)

Great picture! I like the orangish tone. However, and I am sure you figured that there was going to be a "however"... :)

The sun is on the first third (from the left), the first building (from the left) that has a chimney starts on the next third, the horizon is smack-bam right in the center! The top member of the bridge forms a boring straight line that runs along with the horizon. So what is it that you are trying to convey pictorially, except for the colour orange? And there are these branches on the top to the right of the picture - they distract me.

I was not there, hence, I could be very off in my suggestion. However (yes, another count of that word...), if I were you, I would go further up, past the bridge, then frame the picture without the chimneys and with the sun on either the first or second one-thirds position. AND the horizon would not be ambivalent - 50-50. It would frame either more sky, or water depending on  what looked better.

But then that is just me...

I hope that helps.

did I say that?
how do you think a competent HDR picture from a d800 looks with 14 stops DR to chose from  and the same approach?
Please , Keep apart what we are discussing and showing.

This thread's about HDR. You're single frame picture isn't actually 'HDR' in this context.

However your post does show that even when using a D800, a single frame exposure in extreme EV range is no match for well blended bracketed exposures, so from that point it's quite useful.

When blending multiple exposures 14 stops of DR has no advantage over anything else anyway.
Title: Re: Post your HDR images:
Post by: Krob78 on May 09, 2013, 05:07:04 PM
possible, but you can make/develope  two copies from the same raw file/exposure , one after highlights and one after the shadows and blend them, handhold and no worry about the subject moving or not.
Have to be a blistering fast shutter speed, I believe I've seen it done but the tripod is most certainly the option to go with!

Raw , one exposure, d800+200/2.0 at 4.0

The DR of the D800 and Sony sensor is well known, however, I don't think this qualifies as HDR. I get that there is no noise or banding, but there's also no detail. It's out of focus mush. Again, technically it's a nice piece of kit, but there is no interest in the shadow area that was lifted (a common theme I remember seeing from a lot of people when the D800 was first released). The interest of the photo, IMO, is the beautiful orange color of the sun and sky. It's a nice photo which could have benefited from the use of bracketing and a tripod.

Motive you should manage with one exposure and some work in  raw and PS

Can I suggest that you try some HDR on this shot to improve the rather dark areas in the canyon. It could look much better then.

While your improving it you might like to put in a bit of foreground so the river is not clipped at the bottom of the frame. At the moment it looks like the water might leak out and get the viewers feet wet.  ;D

Actually, it wasn't ankorwatt's shot but mine. It is a HDR shot. There's a 300m drop to the Colorado river, so I wasn't prepared to get any closer to the edge than the 0.5m I was.

But thank you to ankorwatt for showing what a bit of "anti-haze" can do to my picture - I've now learned how to do that in PS and it does indeed improve the picture.
Only it didn't look like that when I took the picture :)

A question for all....I've typically held ISO and Aperture constant when bracketing for HDR, and using Shutter Speed as my variable for the bracketed shots.  I just bought a 6D and have been stunned by the high ISO performance.  It makes me wonder if I could handhold more often to bracket by allowing ISO to be the variable, with Shutter Speed and Aperture fixed.  I think I get clean shots with the 6D up to 12800 in many cases, which allows a lot of stops to bracket. 

Has anyone tried HDR with ISO as the variable?

not sure why you would hold shutter constant and only vary ISO (lots of noise).  I often use a combination though so I can do the bracket handheld without blurring on the longer exposure shots.  Just use aperture priority and auto ISO, but limit iso to 800 or so.

That's what I'm talking about, limiting ISO, but on the 6D I'm getting better noise at 6400 than I got on my 7D at 800.  That allows bracketing with the same shutter speed/aperture and up to 6 stops of ISO range.

it isnt a good idea as DR falls off rapidly in higher isos also the sharpness and colours change as iso increases
its still best to have shutter speed as the variable you can still bracket at a higher iso but be aware you are starting with an already pretty low DR base so you need more brackets to compensate. I would not go anywhere near 12800 for this MAYBE 3200 at a stretch and probably apply NR before blending then sharpen and more NR at the end.

Here is one of mine. Nothing spectacular (except that I myself am amazed at the richness of it, given that the lightconditions were un-ideal and very high contrast). I stack them in Merge to HDR Pro.. in Photoshop CS 6. Taking the pictures and stacking them is fine, my problem is what to do in the window that pop's up. Do any of you have any good links to tutorials for this tool in CS 6?

Thanks,

Hey guys, first time poster here, I think; I don't recall posting on the forum in the past...
Anyway, I've enjoyed a lot of the work posted in this thread, so here's a few of mine. I have fun with the HDR development process on some of my stuff, but on a lot of it I prefer an invisible HDR; that generally means either manually merging several brackets or just treading very lightly with the tone-mapping part of HDR. I've got some of both below....

Thanks! All but the third photo had initial processing done in HDR Efex Pro 2; the third one was just done manually in Photoshop, as I recall. With the last photo, I merged portions of the original photos back in over some of the less natural HDR sections.

I think the two most popular ones are Photomatix and Nik Software's HDR Efex Pro. Photomatix is cheaper (now that all Nik plugins are bundled together), probably more powerful and with a steeper learning curve. HDR Efex Pro costs more because all the Nik plugins are bundled together since Google bought Nik, and I think it's a little easier to learn but doesn't give you the level of control that Photomatix does. If others disagree, please correct me; it's been awhile since I used Photomatix.

The upside of buying the Nik bundle is that you get five other plugins, too; Silver Efex Pro, Viveza and Color Efex Pro were all particularly useful additions for me.

 Really, though, I don't think you can go wrong with either option for HDR processing.

MxM

To be honest I don't think this particular image is really benefitting from HDR, in fact I would argue that it is hurting the image. 

There isn't a very high dynamic range in this composition, in fact I'm sure you could have probably gotten all the highlight and lowlight values in this shot from a single exposure.  It seems that you are using HDR to simply amplify the detail contrast to accentuate the grungyness of the scene.  The main problem with this is that now you have enhanced the micro contrast of the area of the picture that is out of focus causing the bokeh to become very nervous and distracting (the opposite of what bokeh should be). 

If you want the micro contrast in the foreground there are many ways to achieve this effect without global hdr on the entire image.  Just my constructive criticism.
Title: Re: Post your HDR images:
Post by: MxM on June 01, 2013, 04:01:21 AM
@blaydese and Krob78, Thank you!

@alex, the funny bokeh is caused by someone who walked in the same room (bend/jumpy floor) that caused my tripod to shake al little bid. (didn't exclude the false exposure) This one in not the best picture I agree, but still wanted to share it with you people.

Shot taken from the top of the Bowder Stone in Borrowdale, English Lake District. The stone is a huge lump of rock about 30' high, and has often been thought an erratic, though it looks pretty clear to me that it's fallen off the mountain side.

Taken on 5D mk2, 17-40 L. Hand blended exposures in photoshop.

Still, very nice, the contrast between the shadows and the light areas is excellent and you got into that engine compartment.  That is one thing I LOVE about HDR, you get that depth, sneak into dark places and see what's in there.

A humble offering taken in Chicago.

Single Image.  (Lightroom -> Photoshop for perspective correction -> Nik HDR Efex for Tone Mapping -> Lightroom for HSL)

I used NIK for mine too.

I really like the concept of this image..with the clouds and all...and please take this advice as coming from a noob myself, but I might suggest you go back and do a little adjustment, to make the halo-ing around the building a bit less noticable....unless that is what you were going for.

Again, I like the image overall...but the haloing just catches my eye a bit much and think you might benefit from cutting that back a little?

Hoping this is take only as constructive criticism!!

Thanks for the feedback Cayenne! The sharpening got a bit over baked - one of those things where it popped out towards the end of processing and I convinced myself it was okay.   I should make another run at it.

That was harder than it should have been.   HDR Efex Pro really wanted to make that edge pop.  I ended up adding about 30 control points in the sky around the building to try to tame it.   And added several local adjustments in LR too.  The fact that the sky is naturally lighter around the building accentuates things. 

It still has a bit of a halo but now I'll claim it's intentional.

I had studied the moon and sun data for this day and knew that a crescent moon would be setting on the same horizon not too long after the sun set so I waited around after the sun was well down for the moon to make its expected appearance.  Sadly the owner of the small sail boat in the foreground was on board doing some work and took the sail down before I got this shot.  Even though it's a small thing in the image, I think the sail adds a really nice, subtle detail.

Ok, let's sum it up a little bit. In my point of view HDR was supposed to enhance the Dynamic Range (as the name suggests), which most of the people do very nicely. But, this doesn't mean to ingnore the colors, getting unnatural saturation-pulls, halos in the sky or tonemapping with harsh contrasts.

In black/white some of the pictures would be really good, but this is too much pop art for me. Don't get me wrong, I don't want to push you down... I just think critism is nothing bad, although in the facebook-decade everything can only by liked somehow. Doesn't help, but keeps up the sparkling atmosphere.

I really love the picture from MxM, that's the spirit of HDR.

Just my 50 cents.

I tend to lean towards the mostly realistic HDR images myself, BUT....I do find some of the hyper-real or more artsy ones to be very interesting and I like them. But, it has to be one well done, and the enhanced color, etc...has to really fit the image, a dance that many HDRs don't always quite get right to me...

But art is art...and it is always up to the individual to know what he likes....and enjoy it.

I totally understand both of the points from vscd and cayenne (especially so). I understand that it's supposed to enhance the dynamic range of the image, especially in the shadows/highlight areas. However, I also see the visual appeal of taking the idea and modifying it to something else. You see photographers take "standard" techniques such as flash, multiple exposure, long exposure, etc. and modify/expand upon them based on their personal tastes. I don't see anything wrong with deviating from the norm and playing around techniques. As said before-- different strokes for different folks. What works for A may not work for B and vice versa.

Onto the stuff I posted, I'm not saying at all that the shots are perfect. I just feel they were successful based on the end product I had in mind, especially since the photos were my first dedicated attempts at HDR photography. Successful being purely subjective, as evidenced by vscd's post. However, as I become more versed and comfortable with the technique, I may find myself leaning towards the more realistic representations, or I might still find myself pulling for the surreal look.

Below is an HDR panorama, taken on the same day as the Cathedral examples I previously posted. When using HDR Efex Pro, I used the default settings. The only additional processing was a bit of tonal contrasting and skyline work in Color Efex pro and desaturtion in Veveza. This shot is more realistic in tone and probably  closer to the true "purpose" of HDR. Some may like it, others may not.

To compare... this is a results of a really cheap ISO200 Colornegative-Film, sold for 80 Cent in germany. The shot was done with an old Konica Auto S3 (38mm @f1.8). Nothing special, but check the High Definition Range. Nothing beats analogue ;)

Here is my HDR rendering of a 1950's era milk barn I passed by one day. I took pains to render this scene into a natural but vibrant photo.

I really like the paper mill shots, they are exactly what realistic HDR should look like in my books -- like you carefully used about 50 flashes to evenly fill shadows.

It means to use a single image to process in order to achieve that shot, instead of using multiple shots. For example, the surfer picture would be impossible to achieve in three different exposures and shots. What he did is raising the shadows while still maintaining the high exposure areas. There's also tweaks with some of the buttons (depending on the shots, which might include contrast and clarity, giving a boost and punch to the picture), in order to achieve the same effect as retaining all dynamic range within the picture. The weakness would be that this is dependant on the dynamic range of the camera, while the strength is that it's usually sharp and less variations introduced.

Actually I knew that it means to process a single shot instead of multiple shots. I just thought that the dynamic range of a single shot depends on a camera and you can't achieve more then that.

Perhaps this term means that someone use ETTR technique and then, during processing get better results compared to normal exposure.

Well, one thing that gives and HDR it's look is tone-mapping.  Or local contrast.  There are different ways to achieve it with a single image, but my preference is Photo Matrix Pro HDR Software.  I just love the results and find it really easy to work with.  So technically the Single image HDR does not have greater Dynamic Range, just greater contrast, but the result can be very nice.

One thing I like to do it process a photo normally with Photoshop, and Also with Photo Matrix Pro.  Then I layer them and adjust the transparency of the top layer to achieve a blend I like.

Nicely done Fuhrtographer.

Thanks Click, here are a few more.

This image perfextly illustrates why I, and many other real estate photographers, gave up on HDR programs like Photomatix and Enfuse. When I have to do HDR now I only use PS 32bit. The colour shifts on the white church drive me mad.

I hope you don't mind but I did an edit like I used to have to, select the white boarding and then desaturate it to white, if you want some colour in it then just add a colour filter back in, all easily done in LR or ACR.

I don't mind a bit. I'm color blind and honestly can't see the difference in the edits! These were the first photos that I done with this post process technique. I started out in ACR then went to HDR Efex and finished in Viveza. Each plug-in I moved the Saturation slider up a bit so by the time I was done I ended up with an color shift. I should really re-edit these to and have you take a look at em. Being color blind I never do anything with isolated colors just global saturation/vibrance sliders and small adjustments at that. I think when you give it a small bump in 3 different plugins you probably start running into trouble. I will post if I reprocess.

Very nice photo. You need to shoot it again - if possible - but in autumn. I think the green leaves of the tree are a bit overwhelming. Colored leaves from autumn should give a nice sphere

Very nice Brian.

Could you tell me where those pictures have been taken?

Thanks again Click. They were taken at a place called Red Mill in Waupaca, Wisconsin. The last picture is Lake Solitude just down the road from Red Mill.

those are some real keepers. I love the wooden covered bridge (why did they not have the forsight to build them around where i live! argh!), and the last shot with the reflected clouds. I love what HDR does to clouds, and i think you left just enough of the surreal hdr look to make the location look really magical, in all the pictures.

A few shots from, shall we say, an earlier point in my development as a photographer using tone-mapping in Photomatix. At the time I was quite pleased, but now my feelings tend to range from "okay, that might be a little overdone :-[" to "my god, what was I thinking of? :o"

About a year ago I started doing urban exploration photography in Detroit - abandoned schools, factories, warehouses, churches, etc.   In additon I've been documenting the old grand churches of Detroit.  The challenge of thiose is to get the detail in the stained glass.

The range of light in a scene can be incredibly wide, 10 stops in some cases.

In order to pull the details out of a scene I started with 3 shots, found that wasn't nearly enough.   Now I start with 7 then work beyond that as needed.

I try very hard to keep the photos on the realistic side of HDR, though I have done a few 'artistic' ones

Some examples : https://www.flickr.com/search/?q=Apmadoc+hdr

I agree, these are beautiful shots.  One of my criteria for nice results with HDR is not being able to tell HDR processing was used- both of your shots look very "natural" and not over processed.  Would you mind sharing your technique?  Are you manually blending in photoshop or using a plugin?

I just had a thought; since the 1dx doesn't do in camera HDR, will it work to use muktiexposure and exposure bracketing at the same time do to a HDR that turns out as a raw file?

I haven't played with that much on the 1D X, but I'm looking at the manual and I'm really surprised to see that the "result" is saved as a RAW file.  That's really interesting and I'll have to play with that, particularly because you can merge photos that are already on the CF card.  It's not designed for HDR, but it's worth a try.

Thanks, jrda2!  I have always found the act of "tone mapping" very frustrating with all of the HDR packages on the market, but recently discovered that PhotoShop lets you adjust the HDR merge with Adobe Camera Raw (ACR), just like a RAW file.  I have been playing with Adobe's built-in Merge to HDR Pro, Nik's HDR Efex Pro 2, and Photomatix.  For this purpose (the exposure merge), they all seem equivalent, but Adobe's ghost reduction is not very good, Nik's is quite for some stuff, but not everything, and Photomatix is the best and most adjustable.  Once I get the 32-bit blend, I use ACR to do the adjustments (tone mapping).  I'm still experimenting a bit with what can and can't be done, but the general technique is as follows:

1. Open bracketed photos in ACR
2. Select all photos, use camera profile to correct distortion, vignetting, CA, etc. (unfortunately you can only do this pre-merge).
3. Open files
4. Goto Automate>Merge to HDR Pro (or HDR Efex Pro 2, Photomatix)
5. If using the built-in Merge to HDR Pro, I select 32-bit and then click to use Camera Raw
6. I use the sliders in ACR as if I were editing a RAW file until I get a natural-looking result
7. Save the 32-bit file, which has Camera Raw applied as a Smart Filter, meaning I can go back and edit
8. Goto Image>Duplicate to create a copy of the photo
9. Goto Image>Mode>16-bit
10. When the dialog comes up, choose Exposure and Gamma option from the Method drop down menu.
11. Save 16-bit file.

You can also goto Filter>Convert to Smart Object to make this one and then use the Camera Raw filter to tweak the photo in 16-bit mode.

I've got a new website I'm just starting to put together, maybe I will use this as the first tutorial once I figure out the best workflow.

This is a 4-shot pano taken from a famous Yosemite parking lot!  Each shot was bracketed +/- 3 stops to overcome the limited DR of Canon's sensor technology, I prefer more "natural" looking HDR.

I had taken a 180 ft fall while rock climbing halfdome a couple days earlier, I was very appreciative of how easy this view is to access.

And what, pray tell, sensor technology gives you the 18 or so stops of DR you recorded? You bracketed 6 stops, even the most fervent member of the Exmor congregation don't claim much more than 2 stops over Canon, and even then only at low iso, which you did, at least, use.

None!  18 stops wasn't necessary though. I just find I get better results from bracketing +/- 3 rather than +/- 2.


A single shot, most certainly would not have done it (I tried, not a fan of the lovely Canon banding).


I sometimes demo Nikon and Sony cameras, and I rarely need HDR on those setups.  If you enjoy Canon's DR, more power to you!  Some folks thrive when they are given limitations, I am lazy. 


Unfortunately, I'm far too invested in Canon to switch camps.  In the type of shooting I do, I am often limited by the DR, because  tripod is not always practical on an alpine climb.  Luckily I was able to limp 40 ft from the car to this viewpoint.


I find it amusing when people say things like "only 2 or 3 stops".  Y'all know stops are logarithmic, not linear, right?

Unless you show us some comparative 32bit histograms I'll assume that is just trolling hyperbole.

I'm sorry, I missed that bit.

You do know that digital capture is linear right? And that it is then converted to a logarithmic scale by applying a gamma curve? And that has to be done because your eye processes that logarithmic scale as a linear one? Ever wonder why midtone is 18% and not 50%?

Thanks Ray. 2012 Druid Arch edition with snow - a little later in the day, so the face of the arch is backlit. I like this one better b/c of the snow and the lighting.

Also, here's where to stand for the Turret arch photo - if you are not afraid of heights. I'm on top of the boulder (nice guy kneeling in front of me shared the spot).

Hi,
I have never done HDR. Recently I took some bracketed RAW images in Arches NP. The intent was to try my hand at HDR. My exposures are -2,0 and +2 EV. I am also pretty inexperienced in editing, do some minor corrections, warming etc. Could you advice regarding workflow? I have CS5. I would get Photomatix if you feel that is good. I am somewhat familiar with the steps but some questions:
- My RAW images are about 25mb each, do I merge and then edit the resulting image or edit first and then merge?
- If I edit first and then merge do I convert the edited images to jpg?
- If I merge 3 RAW images does the file size become roughly 75mb?
- I have seen some of your work here and think I prefer the natural look rather than the grungy look.
- I primarily do landscapes on a 5D MK III. Are three exposures optimum or should I do more in the future?
- Is -2,0,+2 correct separation?
Something to start with. Thanks in advance.

Looks like you have been waiting along time for an answer.  I'll do my best to answer all the questions, but these are my opinions, not gospell.

-Photomatrix is great.  Get the trial version, see if you like it. It is best for over the top HDR, that some hate and some love. BTW Photomatrix does a great job with single RAW images.  So you can go back and "HDRify" some of your older images, including sports/action and people photos where subject movement makes theee images impossible.

-Merge first and then edit. if you edit first, you'll be editing 3 images to uncertain results.

-Does the file size become 75MB? No. 

-Natural HDR is great, do what you like.  Here is a secret never before revealed tip:  If you make an HDR in photoshop/Photomatrix/in camera etc, you can always calm it down in PS by making it a layer with the normally processed image.  Then just adjust the top layer's transparency to get an image somewhere between.

-Three exposures is great, but 5 or 7 is slightly better, especially if noise is a concern, or the scene was VERY contrasty.  If you were making HDR your main thing in Photography I'd say do more.  If you are experimenting, three at 2 stops is great. 

-Bonus.  When I find myself shooting the ultimate landscape I just walked 9 miles to get too.  i always bracket for the sake of bracketing.  These can later be HDRifyed, or just processed, or both.

-2nd Bonus, try B&W HDR.

Hmmmm, you really want feedback? OK..........

I like the Photo, it seems to have a huge amount of detail, no idea if that comes from the HDR processing or not. In some ways it seems a bit low in contrast, on my Monitor. All in all I think its good and an example of the kind of HDR I like.

I'm not sure this actually belongs in this thread as I used an HDR plug in via LightRoom. Then I added the lens flare. I tried to make sure the HDR effect wasn't too overpowering.

Awesome work folks, so happy I'm not alone.  :D

This is a HDR-pano I took a ccouple of days ago on Beinn Glas on the way up Ben Lawers. I used LR's HDR facility to take the original 15 shots down to 5 hdr frames, then stitched them in Autopano, then back into LR for final tweaks. Lens flare courtesy of the EF 24-105.

Hi guys and gals!

I'm using Photomatix for hdr and then import the TIFF to Lr for final adjustments.

Just wanted to ask if I'm on the right path to getting natural looking hdr that's only meant to represent the reality, and not to be used as an effect.

The picture is just a snap I took simply because it was WAY beyond the camera's range and hdr was the only way I could get a balanced image. Nothing is added or taken away. Three exposures.

Had time to do some cloning so I could fill gaps to extend the pano to include more of the river - I like this version better. Was very pleased with the IQ handheld with the 5DSR at slow shutters - not like on a tripod, but decent.

My first attempts at HDR... I processed in Photoshop CS5. It is very difficult to make anything that looks "real" with Photoshop's HDR processing.

I like them. I usually don't care for the usual HDR look, but these look more like paintings. So this time the not looking real is a feature rather than a bug.

There are really a lot of interesting and beautiful pictures in this thread, examples of many different looks that people are aiming for. I even like a lot of the surreal looking ones. My relatively few HDR efforts aim more for trying to make the photo look like how I remember the place looking, and trying to give the viewer some sense of what it felt like to be there.

The picture below is one I posted on a thread about dynamic range in the 6D II. I was illustrating how I feel DR limitations really only in situations that are beyond what any camera can do in one shot now. In my travel photos (which I shoot with the G7X Mark II), I'm often wanting stained glass windows to look good, while still showing detail in the church interior. I think I got the interior a little too bright to look natural, but that could be about right by the time I print it out on my Epson R3000 on 13"x19" paper. This is from the chapel of the Order of the Thistle in St. Giles' Cathedral in Edinburgh; two shots merged in Adobe Bridge. I also did a more straight-on, but still looking up pair of shots and corrected the verticals in that merger, but I like this one better.
