    "old farm shed" HDR

    Old farm shed, shot with Canon 5D Mk II & Canon 17-40 f4L lens. I used A.E.B. 2 stops over, 2 under & 1 neutral. The software used was Photomatix Pro "Exposure Fusion" & PP with Lightroom 2. This image was taken just after dawn.

    Re: "old farm shed"

    Would it be incorrect to label an image such as this "Low Dynamic Range? Not to take anything away from what is a very good image, but shouldn't it be separated from HDR where there are dramatic highlights and intense tone mapping. I would classify an image such as this as one which had precise and necessary post processing.

    Same image, but this time I used the Qtpfsgui software. Let me know if you think this is an improvement on my last effort.

    No worries.

    By way of feedback on this comparison; I prefer the Qtpfsgui sky, but find the shed and foreground a little too desaturated in that shot, although Photomatix Pro, it looks overdone.
