    One of my fav HDR images...

    Hi guys.

    Here's one of my favourite HDR images I've done.

    Sandal Castle, Wakefield, West Yorkshire. It quite a basic shot but I just love this image, to be honest, the mono version looks even better.

    I hope you like it.

    Darren.

    Beautiful ! The clouds are really adding some 3D feeling here, and the colors are great. Nice work Darren

    Hi Darren,

    I agree with Tamara regarding the clouds, although for my taste; a little less foreground saturation and more sharpness on the ruins would help.

    Thanks for posting,

    Hi Darren
    I agree with Dave. The ruins do neeed to be sharpened to make it pop.

    Hi Dave,
    Would it be possible to sharpen using the software in the HRD merged created images?

    I have never done a HDR yet but very keen to try. I am looking into softwares. I do not have photoshop Elements nor CS yet.

    Just started thinking after reading your posting if in post processing one could sharpen or should have used a smaller aperture at the time of photography?

    Regards

    I wouldn't have thought the HDR software would sharpen effectively, but I don'tdo it, so I wouldn't know.

    One should always* sharpen in PP, just using a smaller aperture at taking is not the same thing.
    Equally, one should always perform standard PP on a merged HDR image.
    Miss either and you'll generally not be making the most of your images.

    * As with any "always" rule, there will be occasional exceptions

    If on a budget, you can do a lot with Elements (cheap), or GIMP (free). Both are effectively only 8 bit though, so in a year or three's time, you may find yourself eventually hankering after proper Photoshop. (I'm just getting there)

    Cheers,

    I like it, even though I like the sharper HDR images, I still like this one A LOT!
