Roofs and horizons

Messing with RAW format (or the RAF flavour of it, proprietary to Fuji).

 

Here I used Adobe's DNG and CameraRaw to produce in Photoshop three separate 'exposures' (JPG files with different levels and curve shapes), then tonemapped in Dynamic Photo with the 'traditional' multi-exposure workflow.

 

Funnily, this version looks softer up to medium size, with the other one appearing 'sharper' - the effect of artificial variable-radius contrast in hard tonemapping. In larger sizes, though, that 'sharper' image suffers from significant loss of detail, while this 'blurred' version has a lot more to see on close inspection:)
