Storm Clouds at Colter Bay

© Jeff R. Clow

Another one frame jpeg image from a shot I took this summer in Grand Teton National Park. The photo was enhanced by creating a pseudo-hdr tone mapped image using Dynamic Photo HDR software, version 2.0. The software allows the nuances of light, color and depth to be recovered from a one frame jpeg image.

If you have the time, I hope you'll view this at the larger size linked below so you can see that it is actually possible to get some "depth" from a singe jpeg image using this technique:

    beautiful what you've done to enhance the blues - gives it a cold icey feel - very nice.

    Perfectly stunning ;-) well done Jeff.

    A larger view is a must to really get a feel for this capture.

    Bigger is better, i was doing a search for Dynamic Photo HDR and saw that you use it. I am looking to get either Photo m x or this what would you recommend?
    I use Topaz Adjust right now and really enjoy it but find I might find some other useful tools in one of these programs.

    HDR from a single jpeg?? Wow, it certainly pops out when viewed large and on black! Seems you are quite the hdr expert - thanks for showing people the software link too, might be worth a fiddle with =)
