    I used to hate them, but after playing around with HDRs for a bit tonight, they are pretty cool. :bowdown:

    Original on top, HDR on bottom.

    did you do it the proper way and shoot an underexposed shot, an over exposed shot and a normal shot and then merge them?

    that's what I've been doing at work and it seems to do a good job without completely blowing things out of whack and making it look super fake.

    I've just been using the photoshop built in HDR tool.

    Shot RAW, then resaved a -2 EV 0 EV and +2 EV tiff file, then generated hdr

    ah, ok. I tried that a few times... but now I just do the bracketing on my camera rather than in lightroom or whatever.

    I didn't plan on this being an HDR when I shot it, I just was browsing through my RAW pics for a good one to mess around with.

    I hear its better to shoot at 3 different exposures than to just use the RAW image, not sure why though. :dunno: Anyone know?

    When done properly and with the right type of picture, HDR pics come out very nice.

    Came out nice, too much vignetting IMO
