My first HDRi

I’ve just got home from my travels and have taken lots of shots. I picked out a couple of the better ones to use for my first attempts at HDRi (High Dynamic Range imaging).

The first is on a sunny day in London, the famous London Eye was casting a very arty shadow on a nearby building so I snapped away.

The second is from Barcelona where we visted the Sagrada Família and captured this fantastic shot of a stony spiral staircase.

    Fabulous, I was ‘worrying’ about this the other day, and got annoyed that it appears digital cameras were designed within the limits of film photography which seemed like a really crap idea.

    I had no idea HDRI existed, so thanks for blogging that, I’ll have a play.

    Not sure I quite see the difference in these images tho .. it would be good to see the ordinary versions for comparison.

    It’ll have to work in The Gimp too :-)

    Hi John. Checkout this site, it links to the examples section of the Photomatix (HDR Soft) website. I’ll be writing a new before-and-after post on HDR when I have got my head right around it.

    BTW, you can still use GIMP after you have played around with it in Photomatix Pro as this will enable you to achieve the exact results you require.
