Hi steinbach404

I found this one in HDR contest - is it really HDR? It looks very natural, and that's what I like - best use of HDR I've seen quite a long time. No artefacts, no noise, no strange shifts in colours... What kind of software do you use for processing? And is it HDR made of more expositions (I wonder - texture of water surface is not blurry), or kind of fake HDR (made of one shot)?

Cheers, Tom

Hello Tomas, I like it natural too. It is a mix of HDR and fake HDR. I try to join the best results from a HDR made of 3 to 9 expositions and the fake HDR made from 1 RAW. Masking what I like from each one (the whater from the RAW...). I use the Photomatix. Best Regards from Brazil. ps.: Your gallery is oustanding, and your composition is lovely.

Hi Steinbach

Thanks for explanation - I thought of some kind of masking. It looked like you've removed deep shadows from stones, but kept bright water texture and perhaps the skies (not too much steel gray clouds - how typical for HDR! And no HDR ghost!).

This masking techniques are natural part of Photomatix, or you need to combine it with some other higher level software (Photoshop)? Looks like Photomatix offers excelent quality and results for those who care... ;-)

P.S. I am on "entry level" photo processing SW - Zoner. Perhaps I shall study some tutorials about masking (which have only limited support in Zoner).
