Those last ones are impressive, the moonlight ride and the MotoShow ones.
Back around page 13 I posted quite a few examples of single exposures converted to HDR. You do not need to shoot in RAW, although you can recover more detail from RAW. Post 189 is a tutorial on how I convert and process single JPEGs. Have fun!
Took this one last fall.
Thanks Dave, I just had a look now. I'll have a play with an old jpg images in Photomatix - watch this space
The original jpg...

The HDR version - four different exposure values and 5 minutes in Photomatix and Photoshop...

By no means a perfect image and I think I might have toned back the HDR processing a bit too much. I didn't want an over-processed image though so I'm happy with this as a first attempt.
I'll be back
Well I had no idea how dirty my image sensor was until I took a 3 bracketed exposure and ran it through photomatix. There were giant blobs all in those dramatic skies, but it does interesting things with just a single RAW shot. As I understand it, you shoot with aperture priority so as to get the same depth of field in each exposure? No bike pics until I clean my sensor.
JimRidesThis, That's an awesome first attempt. The original demonstrates perfectly why HDR is sometimes needed. An over-exposed sky and under-exposed foreground was corrected perfectly in the HDR version. I like it!
Nice one Mike M. A single exposure HDR is sometimes the only option for action shots.
I think it looks pretty good!
You brought out the lost color at the bottom and still kept the patch of blue sky at the top.
Ok, my first post on the forum might as well be in here
My Tiger a couple of years back, stopped on the desert road in New Zealand during a 1000Km day trip.
3 shots 2 stops apart finished in Photomatix / Lightroom
Nice photo and bike, sizzlingbadger. Welcome to the forum!
From our ride this weekend
I took a spin out on the Apache Trail this evening.
I love this topic... Great pictures everyone!!
Just a short 4 pic slide.
I took an older single pic that I like and tried out the free version of photomatix. I thought it was real user friendly, I'm going to purchase the pro.
I've learned alot from this thread. Thanks everyone who has shared and Dave for starting it up.
Note: would've rather posted photos straight to this thread, but one was too big of an upload for my free account to handle. But the same account took the video
CaseyB, You are already coming up with some nice results from the single. You definitely need to get the full version of Photomatix and get busy. We'll wait...
Nice one, KingofZroad.
Here's another one from the Apache Trail.
