My kind of HDR
« on: April 28, 2013, 03:56:07 PM »
I took this in Maui while on Vacation. In print its just amazing. Was done in Photomatix about 5 years ago.
Granted... I have seen some great shots of this fence around the island and Internet but this one I feel is in the top 5. I havnt done an HDR Photograph in a while, just havnt had a scene jump out at me lately that says otherwise.
I wish that I would have shot this with my 5D3 and my Tokina 16-28 though...it was shot with my old 40D and Sigma 10-20...

Each to their own I suppose, but this interpretation of HDR just doesn't do it for me  :(

It just looks too artificial ( to me )

Here is another done about the same time frame...one of my favorites..Again in print its amazing as well..this is how I saw the scene in my head before I shot it...going with a more "Natural" look woud have not done it justice in my opinion..

Maybe it was the mushrooms on that pizza I had before we went out shooting... :o

Cool..settings wise depends on the program your using...I would just say to make sure that your scene lends itself to the kind of shot you are looking for...I wouldn't do a cartoon type HDR unless it was for creative/artistic purposes..this type of shot here was done with the 5D 3 (its original didn't have quite enough punch so I made this one out of the bracketed photographs it took. Vintage cars, the more weathered the better..interior shots looking at the dash can be great as well..

mycanonphotos you got my vote.

THANK YOU for posting these
picture, please post more.

I too like the extreme and
"within the nature of the art
that is HDR photography".

Please hang around and post
more, HDR section has this
strange problem of attracting
a large anti-HDR crowd that likes
to just poke the novice, or
anything different.   :-\   ;D

Sheesh !  Not everyone can be
an expert right off the bat, but
we need someplace to post
and TRY.


......................If I wanted bland
pictures, I'd just mount my camera
on my car and drive around and take
pictures.   :P ;D ;)

 


Again, thanks for the "My kind of HDR" it's a great start!

Peace! 8)

HDR pictures tend to look unnaturally, very often. Some like it as art, some use it as DR-enhancement, only. I think most of the hdr-pictures are shoot with a too wide aperture. Blurry pixels tend to get halos... nevertheless. Here are some lost places from germany:

No comment.

Oops I just did. Sorry not my thing - but it's clearly yours which is all that matters at the end of the day.
