Here's a slightly different take. No totality for me. Nice shots everyone!

My collage. 6D with Tamron 150-600mm. Cheap, universal solar filter taped around the front. It was too small!

Who used HDR techniques for any of their final images in this thread?

If so, care to share the process you used? TIA!


I tried (several options) and they all failed to align the images. I ended up blending manually. I'd love to find a better tool since I don't think I'm getting everything I can out of the images.

Anyone here tried it without the filter to see if the dynamic range of their camera is high enough to recover the shadows?

You were in my home town. Wish I had been there too. My Mom and brother just watched from her back yard. Great shots! Thanks for posting.

Lots of wonderful images here. Glad to see so many people stopping for a minute to really observe their universe.

I put this question over in the PP forum, but it looks like the experts are here. We only had about 63% occlusion, but I got the complete event. Several of you have put up nice sequential images. I'm whacking away trying to figure out how to do it. Would some of you give me a few quick pointers as my first couple of attempts haven't solved the problem?

Thanks,

Robert

Mickey, Great shot! Can you share your method of merging? The methods I've read about all seem dated.

Thanks, Ted

I just took the first image and increased the canvas size to fit the rest. Then I dragged and dropped the rest of the images and flattened the total sequence. I'm using. Gimp, but I've used an older version of Photo Shop before. If there's an easier way I'm all ears. Didn't take me too long.

I had no idea how to create the sequential images and found a Youtube link of creating one for a lunar eclipse using Photoshop and used that.

My camera did a strange thing, It worked fine right up to totality, then went bonkers and froze up. This is the last image I got until restarting it.

Actually Ted I was pretty lazy and in a bit of a hurry so I just went to PS and used the Efex HD Pro merge. I think it's under File, Automate

Here's my sequence. Like others have said, I just expanded the canvas and then dropped the files in as layers with a lighten blending mode. I used a little bit of masking around the Corona to fade to the black background.

That's my favorite "sequence" image so far. Really cracking shots all thru this thread!

Here's my shot of the eclipsed sun ... which was white to the visible eye (and at daylight 5500K - what a surprise!), but I decided to put it on "fire" and boosted the color temperature in lightroom.

Click here to see my writeup about the solar eclipse as seen in Tryon, Nebraska
Pics/video are cool ... but it was 100X in real-life ... neat experience. Highly recommended if you haven't seen one.

I thought I'd try a circular sequence...I haven't decided yet if I like it as much as the linear.
