Went out and did 400 miles yesterday, pulled out the camera at the first stop...both batteries are dead.

Had to use the cell phone all day

This is the original single JPEG from a point-n-shoot in 2008.





And here is a revised version.

My first time playing with HDR software. Overcast day doesn't leave much dynamic lighting to play with

I have never used the Photomatix Essentials, but would definitely miss some of the features of the Pro version, especially the Lightroom plugin and the manual selective de-ghosting tool.
Thanks Dave, I must have missed that link. Sez at the bottom that upgrades from Essentials to Pro is just the $60 diff in the original prices... think I'll have to upgrade!

Anyone care to post tips about how to do HDR with moving subjects such as a motorcycle?

Its not really possible as you need multiple exposures of the same scene. If you are doing it for the HDR style and want a little more dynamic range than what you get from a normal jpeg you can do HDR from a single RAW file which would mean you could use any moving image.

Lastly its not HDR but exposure fusion but in some specific circumstances you could use this method: If there is a scene where you have a bike moving through the scene but want the bike at a different exposure than the rest of the scene, take a photo of the scene with the correct exposure and then adjust your settings to expose for the bike (without moving the camera) and then as the bikes goes past get the second exposure. Put both images in photoshop ontop of each other as layers and use masking to mask the bike from one exposure into the exposure for the scene.

Really it depends on why you want to use HDR in the first place. If you just like the look of HDR images then grab a single RAW or even a jpg and run it through photomatix or whatever program you use. You wont get any extra dynamic range but you will get the effect you are looking for (and some noise. If you want to use HDR because you have a scene where in one exposure you have too much dynamic range for you camera to capture in one exposure AND you have a moving subject you might need to get a bit more creative. Photography like this is a problem solving exercise.

This is a good question that has come up before.

IMO, You have three options: Single Exposure, Bracketed Exposures with De-ghosting, Keep the cool ghosts.

In Photomatix Pro you can use the Manual De-Ghosting tool and use bracketed exposures of moving objects.
While this is not a motorcycle, this photo is 5 bracketed exposures of a moving train.
The de-ghosting tool works pretty well most of the time.


Photomatix Pro gives pretty clear instructions on how to use the de-ghosting tool.
I'm not sure if other programs have similar tools.


You CAN recover more dynamic range from any single exposure. More than you might guess. While a single RAW would be better, don't discount the possibilities with a single JPEG.
I've posted these before, but...
Here is the original single JPEG taken while moving with a point-n-shoot and the edited HDR version.
..........


You may not always want to remove ghosts...

Dave- Your skills always impress. I like how you can get it just right without over doing it. Nice Work!!!!

As penance for daring to post non-motorcycle HDRs, I processed some more old single-exposure JPEGs.
