some more from the last few weeks...

Alex, most excellent, the black and white is really
special, love the depth felling, like almost 3D.

The church drives me nuts though, the landscape
is too crooked, I have a pet peeve with crooked
landscapes, I want to tilt my head.  :P  ;)

Thanks for share, I'm getting some great inspiration
from all these shots.  I don't have time to read all
the posts in all the other galleries, so having just a
HDR section seems to help a lot.


Here is one I took yesterday...


Peace!  8)

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!

Spent less than 60 seconds fixing the saturation/ contrast on this. You could do better.

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.

panterck & Chuck,

Great stuff, well balanced and meets the eye well.  I'm glad you described the smoke from the fires, I was wondering what sort of clouds those were. lol. 

Keep up the great work, seems you have a great eye for HDR.

Peace! 8)

lol, that looks so washed out...
in real life the buildings are not
that dark or washed out.  I'll stick
with my buddy Ilko Allexandroff
(Sir-Sky) he's got the HDR down pat.



Thanks for the advice, I'm still working on it ,... my goal... (><)



Peace! 8)

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.
Some cameras… With Canon written on them. Oh, and some lenses… Also with Canon written on them. Oh, and a shiny camera with Fuji written on it too...

Feel free to have a wander round my flickr

My First HDR Attempt
« Reply #56 on: August 22, 2012, 01:31:20 AM »
Hey Everyone,

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

5DMKII w/ 24-70 2.8L

Any feedback is welcome and much appreciated.

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.  ;)
Peace!   8)

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;)
