WARNING! Posibility this is not HDR ;p

Decided to continue uploading my shots from Paris, even though yesterdays went down like a lead balloon! Anyway, I'll get over it Smile

Todays shot is down some side street near Notre Dame. It's the side entrance into a convent or something.

I've been following Paul Stefan's work with awe for some time & love the effect he produces. He has a different (ie-> better) method, but I decided to give HDR a shot. I started with one RAW file, processed 3 times & a HDR image generated & tone mapped using Photomatix. Imported into Lightroom & cropped/straigthened & tonally enhanced.

I've included the original in the modified uploads.

Thanks for looking & all comments welcome as usual (good & bad!).

Trevor.

I'm chilled Keith. Smile

What do you mean? I'm missing something! 3 exposures combined using Photomatix to generate HDR. (I know monitors can't display true HDR...is that what you mean?).

I'm probably wrong......but I'd like to know why. Cheers.

It looks like HDR to me but as I don't know how to HDR yet I can't really judge!
What I can say is that after checking out your OG shot in the mod's section is that this is a cracking piece of processing and the final effect is quite stunning, well executed.

I'm no expert, but I believe that for "true" HDR you need to combine several different exposures to get the dynamic range that a single RAW file can't offer.

That said, this is a fine image and is post-processed beautifully.

As Dave says HDR is multiple exposures of the same subject. All images are then taken into editing software and combined. These images (mine included) are one raw file (one shot, one image) edited as many times as required in raw convertor and taken into editing. However, they are generally KNOWN as HDR.
I love the results this process achieves However its achieved.

You can't generate HDR images from one RAW file and you need several (5 plus) images from severely under-exposed to the same over-exposed and each about 2-3 stops apart.

Like I say, I like it...for what it is

Guys, thanks for the explanation on the HDR. Clears it up a bit for me. I knew that to do it correctly there should be different exposures taken at the time, but I didn't realise how many & how far apart the brackets were.

Cheers,
Trevor.

ps->If I take out the word HDR will you give me a "click" Keith. lol.

Who cares if it is real HDR? It is a great effect and you've carried it out well, suits the subject perfectly. Well worth a click.

An amazing result when I take a look at the original shot. Your post-processing has worked wonderfully and it's got me itching to try the treatment on a few shots ("imitation-HDR" it'll have to be!). Very amused to read through the thread - there's going to be a whole host of HDR debating this season. Just out of interest, how long did you spend working on the pic?
Cheers, Howard
