A View from Empire State (HDR)

My first attempt on HDR or simply known as High Dynamic Range. If you are interested but do not know where to begin, follow this link and you might pick up a tip or two.

For stater, I used a software call photomatix. It is available on a Mac or Windows version but I guess when comes to post processing Mac blows Windows away. But that is another story for another time. Once I converted the raw files(s) and did the tone mapping, a final touch up in Photoshop was needed ie. doing some softening to reduce the noise, curve, some dodge and burn, etc. I kinda like the final result and can’t help it but make a large 24×16 print.

In time I hope to share more tips here as I go along the learning process. Remember Art is never finished, only abandoned. You always learn new things and those photos taken a long time ago which did not interest you at first, might spring into a new life with the different post processing techniques you learn along the way.
