After posting my guitar/piano HDR image here earlier this week, a photo buddy asked to see the original set of images - and asked to see how I'd create a more natural-looking image.
The image on the left (thanks to reader for correcting my L & R) is the middle shot from five exposures at, over and under 0 exposure compensation.
The middle shot (Photomatix only) is a more natural-looking image than the artist image on the right (Photomatix + Topaz Adjust).
When it comes to HDR, have it your way! Realistic or Artistic.
