I prefer more "natural" HDR shots... I don't go for the "cartoon-y" look myself

Like the realism myself, but more than that I love a nice TLR. Maybe I ought make some time to get mine going again.

HDR software

For all those people looking at newer software,

From Canon Rumors:
The entire bundle
You can get the entire Nik Collection from Google for $126.65 for a very limited time (until April 2, 2013). Use the code “northlight” at checkout. I use the Silver Efex Pro 2 and Viveza 2 products all the time and paid considerably more for the entire collection!

http://www.canonrumors.com/2013/03/n...le-for-126-65/

I have looked at HDR Efex Pro 2 for a while, am going to pull the trigger.

Just thought some of y'all mind find this bundle interesting.

question. if it's not cartoon-y how do you tell if it's HDR? seriously. and is there a differences between pics shot in HDR and pics that were post processed to look HDR? and i understand that HDR is a melding of three shots at slightly different exposure settings. is that what ppl do when processing? copy one pic a few times, adjust the exposure/contrast, and then merge them into one pic again?

Answer: most photos in this thread are not HDR.

HDR stands for High Dynamic Range - the idea of which is to expand the dynamic range beyond the capabilities of your camera so that you get more data at each end of the range (because our human eye can see such a larger range than a camera sensor).

Because so many people "over process" HDR... the "overpopped" style has become known as "HDR"... but in reality most "HDR" photos these days are just tone mappings made to look HDR like; perhaps "HDR style" photography would be more apropos.

For example.. in the photo below I used HDR techniques (I took 3 photos with an under-exposed and an over-exposed) to bring out the details in the church - I was shooting into the sun and my camera was incapable of showing the details of the near side of the church (which were in full shade). If I were to adjust the exposure so that I could see the details in the face of the church, then the mountain in the background was completely washed out. By merging the data from the over exposed and the under exposed image I was able to keep the detail in the church face and the mountain (which the human eye is capable of seeing when standing there; but a camera's sensor is not capable of capturing)



Hope this helps

One more example.. crappy point'n'shoot snap shot but it shows the idea:

stock image; notice the top of the mesa in the distance is washed out and the bike's detail is in full shadow so you cannot see it:


photo of 3 merged exposured to give a higher dynamic range - now look at the top of the mesa and the details in the bike:
