Thread: HDR of the Imambara in Lucknow, India

    HDR of the Imambara in Lucknow, India

    This is an attempt to produce "natural looking" HDR with 3 images (2EV apart) processed on Photomatix Pro followed by CS5 for cropping and adjustments. Shot hand held on D7000 with Tokina 11-16mm lens.

    Comments and suggestions are welcome.

    Looks fairly natural to me, if a little over exposed, but i assume thats the look your after nice work with the HDR but not keen on the composition.

    I would endorse Mark's comments.

    I commend you for using HDR as a method to produce an image that looks 'natural'. The original idea behind the technique was to produce images that could otherwise not be reproduced with one frame because of the dynamic range of the light. It was never meant to be a means of producing what many now regard as the 'HDR look'. That, as far as I'm concerned, is another photographic genre altogether.

    We should never be able to tell that the true product of applying the HDR technique is just that - a blend of images.

    I think your second effort is much better. Well done.
