I like your HDR collection, it is such interesting photography. Would like to try it once too, but don't know how... :-)
To make HDR's, go to www.hdrsoft.com and download the free trial version of Photomatix. Then take (approx.) three pictures of the same thing or scenery with different exposure settings (best with about 2 f-stops between each shot); or just open up one photo in Adobe Photoshop, copy the background layer, set the blending option to Multiply, set the opacity to multiples of 38% for every f-stop (76% for two f-stops), flatten the image, save as with a new name, reopen the original and do all the steps again except with Screen as the blending option. Then open Photomatix and create an HDR with the three images you should now have. Then tonemap it with the Tonemapping option and voila!
If you use the trial version, though, Photomatix will apply a glaring watermark to it. To avoid this, buy the full version (or just be creative like me and find ways around this!).
Thanks for your help Andy! I know nothing about photoshop, sounds like Chinese for me... so for me it would be better to do it the other way with Photomatix.

If you only have one photo of what you want to tonemap, you need photoshop or a similar program to create photos with different exposures (instructions in previous post). Besides, you're a photographer and you don't know anything about photoshop? You need to get on the ball, Girl! hehe
thank you for your nice comment on my picture. I have to tell (with pleasure) your photoshots are simply great. Absolutely wonderful.
Bye for now
Thanks so much!
Nice shot Andy! I also tried making three exposures from a jpg before but with poor reults, but I had change he exposures with the levels tool on photoshop. I wil try it with layer technique.
BTW. I also have the trial version of photomatix, I use the clone tool very skilfully, do you have another way of doing it? ;)
I tonemap the images once right side up, tonemap them again with all the images upside down, and then use photoshop to cut out the watermark after I turn the one that was upside down right side up again. Works almost perfectly since orientation does affect the tonemapping (a little eraser to smooth the edges after cutting out the watermark works perfectly). mwuahahahahaha!!
That's genious!! I hadn't thought about that at all! You're far away ahead!! That way you can crop the entire pieces that were beneath the watermarks and place them in the wright position, wright?
Thanks for the idea! ;)
Yep, works great!
I know Andy, it is time for me to start learning about photoshop. But I am not a photographer and only recently ( a few weeks ago I baught my first camera ) I started with digital photography.
But I know who to turn too for my questions!
Travel greetings from Belgium.
Another lovely and pictureaque shot.
Thanks! As I (think I) said, this was my first attempt at HDR; I think it did turn out very nicely.
Es así exactamente como recuerdo la carretera de Guijuelo..(de Guijuelo a Endrinal para ser más exactos)¡que buenos recuerdos!
Me encantaria pasar por un paisaje como este, a la hora de trabajar, todos los dias.
Gracias... gracias....y gracias...
Felicidades, por tus fotos.
Wow Andy, great shot. Have you ever heard of redbubble? It's a place for photographers and artists like you to showcase their work- all my work is on redbubble.
Seriously- I'm not being paid to say this.
¡¡Gracias, Lubican, yosoyneo, y Coldjonny!!
