Oregon Health & Science University Campus - Marquam Hill - Portland Oregon - HDR
This picture was shot on a tripod with five exposures (-4..-2..0..+2..+4EV). I used Photomatix to create the HDR with tone mapping and detail enhanced. I increased the overall saturation with Hue/Saturation in Photoshop. Curve adjustment to increase the overall contrast. 1 layer mask in soft light mode at 50% gray, using brush tool to lighten and darken some areas of the image, to bring out details. Used Nik Sharpener Pro to sharpen image.
I did this to show how HDR could be used to bring out all the details of a scene especially interior shots with view to the window outside. At any exposure value, some parts of the scene will either be too dark or overblown. Below basically show the steps I used to process this 5-exp HDR image. Better than the gibberish description above. Presented in full HDR!
Looks like the weather is going to be nice this weekend! I have to figure where to go shoot! I guess I'll know when I wake up in the morning. Have a fantastic weekend everyone!
