Taking HDR shots can be a pretty hit-n-miss affair, and sometimes during processing I wonder why I even bothered considering how ‘fake’ some of them look.
This is a good example, a construction area down near Docklands in Melbourne, it was a crappy gray sky day and I knew there would be shadow in the original RAW files that I bracketed to make this HDR – but it’s not when you look at the original shot (the middle of the three bracketed exposures) that you can see what this technique brings.
Here’s the original mentioned above – a lighter and darker exposure were also taken to generate the HDR.
- Aperture: ƒ/4
- Camera: NIKON D2X
- Focal length: 50mm
- ISO: 100
