HDR - High Dynamic Range / Re: Best HDR Software?
« on: January 14, 2013, 03:57:27 AM »
I can't belive it, after just got done
bashing Photomatix PRO, I like it the
best, sorry, but I do.  When I was
looking at the pictures, I had not read
your post yet, and thought, meh, I like
the second one.  Then when I read your
post,.. I was like, WHHHAAAAA it's a
Photomatix processed one.  HUH/wow!  :o :P ;D 

Thanks for the compare, that helps a lot,
I guess it is the photographer, the LENS and
less about what HDR program you use.

Peace! 8)

Heavyweight67,

Nice picture, thanks for share, very deep feeling, looks almost 3D.

 ;D




so you are only processing within photomatix? nothing else?

Yup, well ACDSee Pro to rotate, and apply Lomo effect or Olton effect,
or some minor color changes, but really Photomatix is it.


you should at least have canons DPP available for some basic editing too

What's that, got a link?  Is it free?  I'm a poor guy, so no "Adobe expensive Shop" for me.
 

18-55? kit lens?

18-135 lens


stop it down to f8 to f11 and it should not be too bad

Okay, woooosh!  Right over my head,
I'm a super super noob / novice at this,
how do I do that?  A youtube video is
best for me.  I'm a hands on learner.    :P

also try not to go crazy with the strength slider in photomatix between 70 and 80 is not too bad
over 80 is too much most of the time

LOL!  Yeah, I've learned that, so now I decide to either go as "natural a look" as possible, or go stright to grunge.   :o

increasing micro contrast can help reduce halo effects but really with blue sky i have never ever been happy with photomatix results.

Yeah, Okinawa is all blue skies, and I've learned that one too, ...  :-\


I also think photomatix does really wierd things to folliage  also people really dont look good after tone mapping the develop a zombie like look to them due the sickly cast their skin takes on.

Ha ha ha ...  ;D  yup, so true !


Thanks for the tips.

I want an L lens so freaking bad !  What's the cheapest L lens that'd be best for landscape?



Peace!  8)

Sunset in Goa - India

Nice shot !  Like the color of the roots, that is cool.  But the whole shot needs to be rotated so it's not tilted.  I think that ship is going to slide away.  ;)

Thanks wickidwombat,

I'll give it a try / more work.

I'm looking now for some shadow heavy shots I've taken, so I can play around with them.


I think my stock lens and using Photomatix is also a double whammy.


Peace! 8)

enfuse is an open source program 

Okay wickidwombat, ... going to give your enfuse
a try... however is it stand alone or do I have to
own "Expensive dobe" light room software first?

http://sourceforge.net/projects/enblend/files/enblend-enfuse/enblend-enfuse-4.1/enblend-enfuse-4.1-win64.zip/download

I'm willing to keep an open mind,
but not willing to part with $1,089.00
for Adobe anything.

Unfortunately I'm in the POOR
photographers catagory.   :-\

Here is my first attempt at HDR.

Shot with a 7D using a 16-35mm. Images were +3, 0, -3 and processed using DPP. Please share your constructive criticism and suggestions as I am really looking to learn more.

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.

*Man, I wish I could afford a 16-35mm L lens.

Peace! 8)

The 10-22 from canon is considered very good, or the sigma version. It's not "L" but for landscapes, comparable quality.

Thanks Dark, I added it to my wish list. 
If I get antsy and can't wait until I have
$1,300 bucks, I might just get this one
and work with it.  Like it's said the shot
is not the equipment it's the photographer.

Peace!  8)

I really suck at this, but here are a few...  :-\









 :-[ I wish I had a nice 'L' lens, what's best for outdoor (sorta wide angle) for a Canon 60D ?

I'll need to save about 500 more $$ to get this one:

Looking for some inspiration while driving around the back paddocks near home I saw this old VW sitting abandoned in a field and the rest is history 8-)  3 Brackets at 2 ev spacings apart , processed in photomatix and finished up in cs6 with some nik effex thrown in as well.

Cool !

So many great images! Good job everyone. I got Photomatix for Christmas and the HDR quality is so much better than Photoshop's. Here are some images I processed in Photomatix and edited in Photoshop.
