Day 15

This is my first HDR made with more than 3 pictures.

Actually, it’s made with 7 shots hand-held (I didn’t use a tripod or anything I could support the camera on) and merged them on Photomatix pro, using the tone mapping tool to give it a kind of painting looking effect.

“HDR (High Dynamic Range) is a set of techniques that makes a great dynamic range between the lightest and darkest areas of an image than current standard digital imaging techniques or photographic methods. This wide dynamic range allows HDR images to more accurately represent the range of intensity levels found in real scenes, ranging from direct sunlight to faint starlight, and is often captured by way of a plurality of differently exposed pictures of the same subject matter.

Some HDR can en up being pretty normal shots, totally flat and no details standing out, some others can be completely overdone, that depends on how you process them.

Feel free to leave feedback, critiques or suggestions.

  1. Espectacular Pablo, el Alto del Nudo te quedo fantastico,,,el procesado es espectacular, como luce de bien San Jose!!!

  2. I love the painting feel in this photo. Not sure about the clouds however. Personally I think they look to “real” in comparison to the rest of the picture. Thats just a personal opinion though.

  3. Pablo, I agree with Cameolee, the clouds feel under done. Sorry. However, I think HDR has to be either very subtle, or completely over the top to almost make it a drawing. I don’t tend to like those processed shots that sit in between.
    Good work.
