    Just to clarify, the only reason I chose -1, -3, +1 is because that first exposure had such horribly blow highlights and I was trying my best to recover some of the highlights. In a normal HDR from a single RAW file, you'd go 0, -2, +2 in processing. The EV values in either case are still +/-2, I just tried to tone down the overexposure.

    similar subject, but wow look at that color!

    I guess he finds the middle point of an exposure and then does an "HDR" from that single exposure.

    Let us know if he responds. I would seriously like to know. I suspect a few are multiple, many are single.

    Went back and took a few more images no tripod (sorry Don I left it in the wife's car) I shot it in the morning. I didn't try for HDR. I cleaned up the background and did some PS on it. Here is the original and the final.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.

    That grass is definitely ... bright. New Jersey, right? Toxic waste nearby?

    If my grass was that bright ... I'd be looking around for a reason. Try draining some of the saturation out of the image. That might help some.

    It definitely is an improvement, though ... like anything ... massage it.

    The land is at sea level so it gets plenty of water. Over on Long Beach Island you dig down six inches and you hit water. I will try again. Next time just lie and say it is great. LOL If this was film I would be selling all my gear.

    Here is the million dollar image of the week. That is how much time went into this image with a combined effort from the Sony and Cannon crew.LOL I am going to print this just because of all the time I put into it.
