Just thought Id try it since I like Photomatix but I wanted to know how Photoshop does HDR (in terms of how to use it) and I kinda like both but Photomatix seems easier for HDR.
Anyway, this is 3 images, with the original and then the two I mucked around with. This is a shot of the now empty Lake George about 50km from Canberra Australia.
ORIGINAL - at "normal" exposure
My first attempt to make some kind of shilouette with some punchy looking clouds
Second attempt to make the foreground seem more interesting lol
What do you guys think? Please let me know your honest thoughts - only way I think I will learn how to do this kind of stuff
