Hey everyone,

This is my first attempt at using a trial version of photomatrix in HDR. I used one image and in photoshop used screen and multiply layers at 10% to create three different images of just right, lighter, and darker. Then used photomatrix and created this image by using the combine shadow / light mode. It does not look like other HDR's but, this is my frist attempt. What is your thoughts? and What do you use for making HDR's?

Take care and be safe.
God be with you,
Tony

I just do the same basic process with the RAW image. I process it, in RAW, two or more times (each with a different black and white point and/or brightness) and then bring each into PS ad then combine them into 2 or 3 layers. I then used masking and a black and white soft brush to paint in what I want from each image. The method you used to create the three base images will work, but you won't get the same quality as creating your three layers in the RAW processor. I'll have to check out the photomatrix plugin to see how it works (I like to play with all the new toys, obviously )
Cheers,
rfs

keep in mind that I don't know dooky. But I think HDR is better suited for landscape and architechual photos then portrait. For one, you can actually take bracketed shots of a landscape or structure with out having to worry about it moving, unless you live in Japan or California. With a single shot from a digital camera, you have 6 exposure levels. With bracketed shots, you can extend the range of light/shadow/detail. If the shot does not have a wide range to begin with. there isn't much point in doing it. In portrait, the idea is to keep the view focused on the person's face/body. Detail/definition in the backgound isn't important, and not desired, which is something you did in your hDR version. Also, your saturation increased which makes it pop a little more and your contrast got better. It isn't hazy like the original. But, I played with the original and adjusted the contrast and curves and came up with an image that looks as good as your hdr, but doesn't have the unwanted effects on the skin and such. I'd post it but I don't have a place to do that. Point is, that I think you could have achieved the same or better results quicker by doing what I did for this image.

Right. No need here for HDR, simply the dynamic range of your camera was large enough for this picture. You should try HDR when your sensor has been exceeded by a wider dynamic range scene.
