p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · HDR Looking? hdr plus layering


For fun, I was reworking an image. I had 3 shots, each 2 stops apart. here is the middle shot

Here is the final product

I liked the waterfall on the left. the middle exposure was the perfect exposure for it. the other two either froze the water, or leveled it out. first I just tried to push the middle exposure, pushing the shadows, and doing some general exposure, and I came up with this., which was good, but with banding and a lot of noise in the shadows.

then I do a merge to hdr in photshop, got a 32 bit file, and edited it in LR. its a great clean way, without ending up with tone maping. the problem was the moving water, birds, and loss of waterfal

So I combined the HDR, with the pushed image, using the primarily the pushed image, except in shadow areas. here is a compairson in noise in banding between the final image, and the pushed image

I think both the original and the hdr image combined well in this.
other option of course is the d800 :-).

Since this post is strictly about post processing, I'm moving it to that forum.
