HDR: Have it Your Way

Click to enlarge image.

Hey Gang!

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.

Explore the Light,
Rick

Not to be nitpicking, but you likely wanted to say that image on the LEFT is the one taken at 0 exposure compensation... (From frequent experiences with my wife while driving: "Go left, go left, GO LEFT!... while strongly waving hand and repeatedly pointing to the... RIGHT :) )
