    I tried some HDR with lukewarm results. I'll have to keep at it.

    Ooo, I think this one has some good HDR potential! If it where up to me, I would brighten the sky on the on the periphery (if you can do so without desaturating your sky), trying to leave the clouds where they are, perhaps lighten the ground a bit, but I would leave the shadow of the statue pretty dark like it is now. That is an excellent start, nice shot!

    Something that might be interesting, sort of along the lines of the Photo Challenge, might be a Photo editing "conference" where someone can post something they want to work on, like a HDR, everyone can have their crack at it, then we can compare results and see other peoples work flow.

    I say this because looking at Rinkrat's photo, it is a really cool image, and it makes me want to play around with HDR again, but I don't think I'm going to have a chance to shoot anything anytime soon, and it might be cool to see how other people do things. It probably would be pretty hard to do practically though because for it to be really useful, you would want to look at people Photoshop file, which mean we would need a server with a LOT of space to share things.

    Hold it now. Hit it! Here's the Remix.





    Being the first one I am just figuring out what I can tweak and what I cant. It still looks a little dull. I think I need to shoot raw and use a tripod to start.
    Here it is resampled and mixed up a little, still not the real punch I need though. Getting there

    Then again, the muted colors set an appropriate mood.

    That's an idea. Each of us could post the three raw image files used to make an HDR and then others could download and tweak and put up the results. As long as we're on the same page as far as programs are concerned (because cross-platform, I think we'd create more questions than we answer), I think we could learn a lot.

    I think the HDR version of that image would definitely benefit from a couple of things, the first being a tripod. The second would be to start with the exposure set for the shadows of the statue. If you can get that exposed correctly, the sky should be blown out. If you can bracket that first exposure by +/- 2 EV (+2 to get the darkest areas and -2 to get the sky), you should get three images that are far enough apart in range to create a pretty slick HDR.

    If you start the bracketing with an exposure for the sky, then you'll not get enough of a change in detail in the sky itself to make a good HDR, and the level of detail in the shadows will be nonexistent.

    And yes, you pretty much have to go RAW for the increase in data in each image.

    Belmont Pier - Another HDR

    Next time I'l bracket more extremely and use a tripod and RAW. Thanks for all of the help guys. I'm surprised I held it still enough to work at all

    EDIT: Second try

    That one is SLICK! What program are you using to create the HDR images?
