 Post subject: HDR (C&C welcome)
PostPosted: Tue Sep 23, 2008 2:03 am 
Hello there!
I am trying to figure out this HDR stuff yet, so I got Photomatix and started shooting. I have absolutely NO IDEA if I am doing it right or wrong, so any comments will be very welcome.
I just used the AEB (+/- 2) in the 40D, than put all the 3 images in Photomatix and played a bit in the controls.
What would you guys do to make these HDR results better?
Thanks everyone!

For a first time attempt, not bad at all!

To be honest, there is no "wrong" way to do HDR images and processing. It is really just a matter of personal preference when it comes to HDR processing.

Some people will like the halos, or the "low" light smoothing or whatever, and some people wont.

It's really all about you and what you want your images to look like.

Here's my opinion:

1st: I think the colors are great, but the bird is a bit too dark towards the face. I'm not a huge fan of the halos, but again, if you like them, no worries!

2nd: Pretty good, but I think the light smoothing could have been turned up a bit more.

Keep practicing and have fun!

I like the way the bird stands out from the background in the first one although I think the halos could have been toned down a little.
