New experiment today, first picture with standard camera settings (bad light conditions). Second with HDR.

Anyone use the Automated HDR tool in Photoshop CS2? I keep trying to load multiple exposure images and it says "there is not enough dynamic range to create a useful HDR image".. although I'm am positive these 5 images have enough dynamic range...

edit: Just read that Photoshop analyzes the recorded EXIF exposure data to justify whether or not the photos have a dynamic range. So that means if you want to use CS2 to create HDR photos, you must take multiple shots at different exposure levels rather than using 1 RAW photo and adjusting the exposure levels on the computer.

Or throw the EXIF away by using "save for web".

Well, gave it a shot again in CS2 after creating EXIF-less jpegs of the one RAW negative.. Not very happy with the results.. but am eager to perfect this technique.

Original with blown out sky


HDR creation


Next I will try HDR with multiple exposed negatives instead of adjusting one negative.

I usually perform the HDR-action on a new Layer, so I can blend it with the original image. "Lighten" works very good most of the time.

I was using the HDR tool under File>Automate>HDR..

So basically you do it the manual way? I figured that would curb the best results but was hoping some software jockey created some nice piece of code to do it for me

iwan thats amazing! do you have the original picture(s) for comparison? how do you like the 400? I'm thinking about upgrading from my 350, but I'm not sure its worth it.

@ferrarif1fan89
here the originals, as for the 400D, can't give you really an advise, it's my
first SLR, i'm a beginner on this topic. but as far as I know there isn't much
difference to the 350D.... at least not for semipro guys....... i would say
it's not worth to upgrade unless you get an interesting trade in...






cheers
iwan

I do the File>Automate>HDR, then in 16bit-mode use the Photomatix Plugin on a new Layer. Sometimes I don't even go that way, I just convert the image to 16bit and use the Photomatix plugin on a new layer, like in this picture:
