What a difference! This shows how well HDR can get details from the shadows. What were the exposure times for all of the bracketed shots?

This is an amazing advert for HDR - the original was good, but the difference is almost unbelievable. Excellent

Hi Patrick
Thanks for the comment and click.
This is a "FAKE" HDR. Single RAW file opened in Canons Digital Photo Professional saved as a 16bit TIFF then over exposed by 1 stop and another Save as 16 bit TIFF then another over, saved. Then back the other way. When you have 5 Tiffs open them in Photomatix Pro and process the same way for RAW's.
A very very cool utility. I have tried it in Photoshop in this manner but it doesn't work Sad

A good example of extracting lots of info from a single raw file. The original was spoilt by the huge dark area, it unbalanced the image. However, I prefer the bite in the other one. Maybe now you've got all the detail out you can work on that.

superb waterflow capture - well composed for the contrast between greenery and waterflow.

Fantastic shot. You can almost feel the mist spray from the water.

Excellent composition, especially the positioning of the foreground rocks and the curve in the rock behind the fall.
