sunset 2 HDR (sharpened)

Taken for "Themes & Challenges: HDR fortnight". Another attempt at HDR. I tried some forest shots. Hard to get the "greens" right - have to play around a lot with desaturating yellows and tweaking the hues of the green to avoid something too lurid. In the end I didn't see any real improvement, but then perhaps there wasn't enough dynamic range in the subject to begin with. So I went back to sunsets, as they certainly provide a wide dynamic range.


This one is again based on three images, shot at -2, 0, and +2 EV. Processed using Photoshop's "Photorealistic" preset, with some minor tweaks, and sharpened using their "Smart Sharpen" filter.
