Re: HDR?

They look computer generated..

So you just take a picture of the same thing..but with different exposure levels for each shot and photoshop them together?

Seems too simple so im guessing im missing something.

Re: HDR?

Looks like a photo of a tree by a river IMO - or am I being a bit thick?

Re: HDR?

i detest HDR photos but it seems some of the younger photogs really dig them.

imho it's pointless "lets make a photo look like bad CGI" but whatever, to each his/her own.... geln

Re: HDR?

They were originally for texture/image mapping in 3d apps. To give a better reflection and for sky lighting.

Re: HDR?

basicly what I'm doing is shooting multiple images some darker than others and some really bright, the reason for this is if I took a single shot of it, only one part would come out exposed with the rest being underexposed or just really horrible so since I took multiple images and generated them, shadows and highlights are shown throughout the whole picture without the effect of just the glaring sun and everything else dark (underexposed)

Re: HDR?

HDR is cool. You can produce images with more dynamic range than what would be possible otherwise. Yes it looks different but photography is art. If you like it go for it.
Here are a couple of mine. They are not very good because I didn't use a tripod when shooting the images but I like them anyway.

Re: HDR?

Looks kind of cool in some shots, there is some obvious blurring of the leaves in the last one, but who'd expect the wind to comply when you're shooting outdoor pics.
Keep up the good work, it is interesting to see how others frame their subject matter.

Re: HDR?

Yeah in my case it's the lack of tripod that causes the blurring. Three images not perfectly aligned. I'm just experimenting. I might break out the tripod and make a serious attempt at some of these soon.
