Lately I am busy with learning more about HDR-processing. With the correct software it is not difficult to do, but getting a realistic look is not always that easy. Here some examples with the ZF.2 15/2.8 (unfortunately still on a crop-body , so it actually is a 22.5 mm lens). In near future a D800E is planned.

Comments, tips and tricks are welcome.

The first three look great, very natural, with just a touch too much saturation. The last two have a little of that HDR look to them, a certain soft grittiness. I think just allowing the contrast to go a little higher and holding back the saturation a tiny bit would fix all of these, if 100% natural-looking is what you are after, but they already look really nice.

Thanks Carsten. I will give it a try.

I agree with Carsten Wiseguy. The first one looks the most natural to me.

Deang, nice set! I've always been a fan of the ZM 50. Too bad I own it but cant afford the proper body for it, M9 / M10.

Jochenb, very peaceful shot..nice

User, nice shot with the 25.

Thanks Frank!

As to Storkyrkan, I was surprised to learn that it is no more posh to mary in there than any other church, it's just a bit more difficult to find available slots. You don't need to belong to the "right" family or anything
Now, Riddarholmskyrkan, that's another thing entirely.

Just got back from a road trip out to denver, down to taos/santa fe, then back to IA. Here's one from the trip with the 50 1.4. I realize processing may not be to the taste of many.

Great stuff Johnny, I especially like your third shot . Ronny love the wedding pics, both shots are extremely good!

I've just got my monitor calibrated and recently worked on this pic. It looks fine on the calibrated monitor but it looks very dark and contrasty on my brother's mac. Would anyone care to comment if it looks too dark or contrasty on their monitor?

I really wish I had such colors here at the moment !

Some oldies with the 100/2 Makro-Planar on 5D II. Shooting it up close at f/2 was always delightful.
