    It is doable...but it isn't real HDR.

    HDR example

    Hi guys,

    I've played around a little with HDR with some photos from my Sony A100.

    Below is a combination from five exposures:



    It is a good technique where there is a much brighter foreground/background but with lots of detail that you want to preserve. Like DRO but more so

    Looks good, Jonathan. Very natural, like it could have been from one exposure. Could you post the original for comparison?

    You CANNOT make HDR from one exposure. HDR = High Dynamic Range.

    If you have taken one photo, thats the Dynamic Range of the sensor (which is generally NOT what you see with your eye).

    In Donschaps efforts, those are just filters or effects.

    What I think you are looking for is HDR effect which can be super saturated surreal looking photos. IMHO the first shot you posted looks awful as a HDR shot because its not HDR.

    Dons aint much better. The first shot Donshap posted entitled "HDR" is not HDR. The sky is white. The original showed the sky blueish. That "HDR" shot could have come out of the camera (and looked better) but exposed for the shadows. You would need at least two more to make up the midtones and the highlights. But thats my opinion. If thats the effect you are after, then by all means, go for it!

    HDR images

    Hi toriaj and all,

    To illustrate, here are three of the originals that went into making the final HDR. From under to over-exposed:







    Cheers,

    JJ, I am even more impressed with your HDR now that I see the originals. Wow, that's just the kind of HDR I'd like to do.
