My try at HDR

Recommended Posts

Thanks, it was a real simple edit because there was a good starting point. I spent more time waiting for PS to start than I did tweaking.

 

If you spend some proper time with that Photomatix image in PS, you ought to be able to get it exactly how you saw it. In my version, I just bumped the contrast and master saturation levels. If I were to put more time into it, I'd probably go to the individual color saturation channels (the greens are a bit too high and the reds and yellows could use a little more boost in mine), maybe play with the brightness some... Just watch out that the yellows and whites in the sky and windows don't get blown out by overdoing the saturation.

 

Yea, i guess i really liked the darker setting personaly, thanks for the tips ill try them out next time.

Oh, don't get me wrong, your first one is by no means a bad image. It's just that if you're talking about HDR photos, the second one is, in a technical sense, the better image. Artistically, it's subjective, so you're well within your bounds to prefer the darker one.

By playing with that second image, you should be able to get an image that meets both the technical aspects of HDR by maintaining the detail, and your artistic preference by getting darker, more intense coloring.
