stll experimenting with hdr photography

we have been playing around using high dynamic range photography... went to bushkill falls in pa and tried some new pics. the images are actually 3 exposures combined into 1 very wide range picture which can capture full highlights and shadows , something digital cameras just cant do yet on their own. some can be quite painting like if you so desire.

I keep meaning to try this. It's pretty cool. Nice pics.

Could you post a sample or two with the 3 original shots? I'd like to see what each looked like.

Offhand, most of those shots don't look like high contrast to me. The main advantage of hdr is to capture the brights w/o washing out, and the shadows w/o losing everything to black. You also get some noise reduction (in signal processing lingo, the picture is correlated information in all three, while the noise/grain is non-correlated) with hdr.

Thanks for putting this back on my radar screen.

Good worth mathjak. I'm digging the bridge shot especially.

What do you use? Photoshop CS2/CS3 or something else? I've been a fan of Photomatix myself.

The pictures look good.

I just downloaded the trial version of PhotoMatrix. Going to give it a try this evening.

A link to PhotoMatrix.

Yes, I see now. Very nice. I guess the hdr did it's job - it made me *think* there was not so much contrast there.

Very cool - ERD50
