Photomatix pro is
I bracketed some pics at my brother's new house... was messing w/ this pic.
What are the settings you used for Photomatix? For some reason, it's kinda making the colors flat.
I just messed w/ it a bit... didn't get too far into it. First time using it.
looks really flat
i wish i had photomatrix Girth how bout a pm?
I has it for oS X
I sent him a PM this morning with the necessary installation needs
How many bracketed photos did you take? And I assume you mean exposure bracketed?
the moar you practice with photomatix the better you'll get
keep messing with the settings...you need to get rid of the gray and give it more contrast
Yes, exposure. -2, 0, and +2 is normally how I set it. And I took 3 pics.
That picture is not too far off what the program spit out after generating. I messed with it slightly, but that's it... nothing fancy.
I didn't take too many bracketed pics that day, but now that I have this program, you can bet I'm going to do it until I get my settings down pat.
the program does a horrible job of combining them. you have to go into the details enhancer and tweak all of the different settings to get what you want.
I'll try and mess with that again tonight.
HDR should DIAF.
I think the emergence of HDR has made a lot of shitty pictures show up everywhere and people are eating it up like crazy.
That's probably the worst thing about it--otherwise, it's really not too bad.
exactly. HDR, like most types of photography, when done bad looks like complete shit. HDR just happens to be incredibly popular now because it gives photos that "cool" look, it "hides" the normal problems found with conventional photography (exposure, highlights, shadows, etc), and can be easily done by just anyone.
But those who use it for it's intended purchase shouldn't have to suffer because of the people who don't know how to use it.
Because I rarely see it done well. Even if it's a good HDR, most of the time the scene just doesn't look natural. I'm not a fan of it at all, but that's just me.
