    A half-assed HDR with blown highlights from this morning after the storms...



    I had a problem with the bracketing. I have it set for 3 images, -2, 0, +2. Well, the camera took 2 normal pictures at +0 and a +2. The image data says one of them is at -2 but it has the same shutter speed and looks exactly the same as the +0, they are identical images. I am not sure what is up with my D80 but regardless, here is the result and I don't have a -2 image to help with the highlights. It does add some intensity to the picture though.

    Nice shot VR.

    The blown highlights will always happen in that type of shot. Unless you combine A LOT of images to combine the Dynamic range.

    The problem with shots with trees is that each leaf has to remain still to line up..which is impossible! So trees end up looking very fluffy.

    Well I wouldn't have had as big of a problem if the camera had done what it's supposed to. In a later set, it did take the -2 shot correctly so go figure.

    what do you mean? Did the exposure bracket not work?

    Generally end up underexposing because I always have the camera set to underexpose by 1/2 a stop. Therefore the 3 shots are bracketed around that!

    No, it didn't. The picture that says its -2 is actually the same shutter speed and exposure as the normal 0 pic. Therefore I only had a 0 and +2 to work with.

    DPR, Nice colors in the rocks and I like that old twisted tree.

    Truflip, What a cool looking windmill. Great perspective, and the colors and the clouds are quite nice as well. Looks like it might've been on a golf course.

    Thanks Pirate! I don't mind sharing. I used what's called dodging and burning.
    But I was real sloppy with it (was my first time trying this technique).
    With this shot, I didn't actually use the dodge and burn tools but I made a new layer on top of the original then changed the blend mode to Overlay.
    You then take a white brush and set opacity to about 25% and brush the areas you want to make brighter.
    The black brush will do the opposite. In that picture, I brushed the clouds black and the grass and windmill white.
    Before all this, I adjusted the photo using levels since I metered exposure to avoid clipping the bright clouds in the back.
    I hope this helps
