Me again. Here's a couple of shots I got in the summer. Only just getting around to processing (I'm slow).

HDR works not bad with flowers I think, surprisingly. The pink one is my favourite. These are by far my most subtle HDR attempts.

3 shots, +/- 2ev, hand-held, Tokina 12-24mm

Hi Zorro,

Great shots, though why no use of the [img]..[/img] tags? With the second one in particular the HDR treatment really seems to bring out a huge amount of detail but is subtle enough that one can't be sure it's been used - any chance of posting the 0eV shot, processed as you see fit, as a comparison?. Thanks for sharing. 8)

Bob.

Good point Bob. I made the images visible but can't remember how to make them clickable :oops:

Here's the mid exposure of the pink flower

Hi Zorro,

That 0eV exposure really shows the value of HDR in bringing out the subtle details IMO. DSLR sensors still have a long way to go before we can forget about exposure bracketing!

The syntax you were looking for is:

Thanks for the help Bob, It's sorted now.

You're absolutely right. I think the HDR version is far richer in detail, not really the asset HDR is normally used to enhance.

Very nice Zorro, the 2nd one in particular. You may be slow at processing, but you're always one step ahead of the HDR game :lol:

Merry Christmas to you :D

Taking my cue from another thread entirely - saturation on the flower increased exactly one tad.
