    HDR Photografy examples

    Hi,
    lately i am trying some HDR photos. after reading a bit, i am starting to understand the concept.
    I grab my Nikon and went to take some pictures and work them in hdr software.

    Here are some photos of my work:

    I love experimenting with things like HDR.

    How are you taking the images? The best way is to use exposure bracketing if your DSLR supports it. Set it up so you have the correct exposure, then the bracketing 2 stops either side, so you get an under and over exposed image alongside the properly exposed one for every shot you take. This makes it easy to combine then in post production to get the best HDR image result. Also taking the pictures in RAW is best if possible.

    I then use Photoshop as it was a RAW HDR import feature in the latest versions which allows a lot of adjustment.

    For those that don't know what HDR photography is.. with a normal photograph at correct exposure the shadows are too dark to see details within them, and the brighter parts are too bright to see detail within those. By taking a correctly exposed image you get the main focal point detail correctly exposed and in focus with detail, then taking an under exposed image you get the more detail in the brighter areas of the image, and finally an over exposed image you get more detail in the darker areas. Combine all three images to create a final image where you can see the extra detail in all area of the image with created strength to colours and contrast.

    Some nice images there. I would only say that you contrast is a little too high in the blacks and shadows, creating a slight fringing effect around objects. I liked the blue building and crazy paving image the best. Love blue in HDR images. Night and sea work really well for HDR too.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    My Nikon D3200 don't have Bracketing option so i take it in aperture priority. I set the F then i take 2 or 3 steps up and down.
    Or i go to manual mode and set the the aperture and exposure.
    I am taking in 3 imagens but i have try it with 7.
    I try to keep the ISO low, and avoid auto white balance.

    As you said some of them have much effect. But i am new in HDR, i am still learning.
    I have to practice more. And get a new software, i am using Fusion that is a free software.
    do you use photoshop?? Does it have options for HDR? I didn't know that.

    Yes, Photoshop has had HDR support since I think CS4, so quite some time.. however since CS6 with the Camera Raw plugin (included as standard with Photoshop) it provides a merge to HDR feature, allowing you to select multiple images and merge them within the Camera Raw plugin tools (so working in 32bit colour space) and create some amazing results if you have the time and patience.

    Here is a very good guide to how it works with lots of useful advice about HDR photography you should find useful.

    And take a look at the following video to see some Photoshop HDR editing in progress and how it works.

    I might also have some HDR creation software included free with one of my subscriptions that is meant to work pretty well. If I find it I can update it for you to try out if you are interested.

    I went looking for new software and:
    I got photomatix and it's a nice software, i also tried the HDR options inside photoshop, but photomatix looks better.

    I just gave it a shoot try photomatix, it was a shoot at home and converted the result to black & white

    I tend to like the b&w HDR photos, you can have nice textures.
