Wet Glow

This is my first hdr attempt...I like it best viewed in small as I don't think it's the sharpest photo. Big thanks to cyanatic for helping me get under way.

    The way it's long to achieve good hdr, or better say well-balanced tone mapping.
    Don't be discouraged, anyways you've chosen a difficoult test image, because HDR tecnique shouldn't be applyed strongly to open sky.
    Feel free to ask!

    I am assuming you used a single jpg file. I only say this cause your sky has no depth which is a typical result of a single jpg. Keep at it, with time you will get a better understanding of how to take a good photo for HDR.

    A good appraoch to understanding HDR is take several jpgs at different exposures times and then try tone mapping each individually. Once you get a little more comfortable with that try taking AEB photos and then merge. There is a lot to learn in HDR, capture, merging, and tone mapping with each being very complicated. I look forward to seeing your progress.

    Have fun HDRing

    Thank you roger taylor, mtlockca for your honest evaluations. And you'll probably be hearing from me for tutelage on the fine art of hdr. Hehe, yes cyanatic, I think I'm already obsessed/possessed with/by this. Thanks brotha for inspiring me. :) Thank you krokusse. :)

    Hey this is a really cool effect. The autumn leaves are popping out at you and it really makes the picture stand out. Nice touch!
  • mtlockca 9y

    np anytime. I try to see the creative side of any piece of work. I only mentioned these things cause you said it was your first attempt.

    Wow! I know nothing about HDR; this photo looks like something captured during the holidays, except more beautiful. Kudos, and good luck as you continue to explore and refine your art! ;-)

    My hero's have said "anything worth doing, is worth doing to excess!" Your autumn leaves are awesome, they make Seatlle look like the northeast in autumn.

    now where does one go to start?..............
  • Dora Snyder 8y

    I want to learn HDR, too. at least you are trying, and have a concept of how it works. I am not very technical, I just enjoy a good photo.
