HDR shot of my car

im no photography pro or anything, i just simply shot this with my canon sd870IS

if u havent heard of the term HDR, i think it stands for high dynamic range.

i used this tutorial to make it....
http://www.vanilladays.com/hdr-guide/#whatishdr

instead of using 3 pics, i used 5 at exposures: -2,-1,0,1,2








and used Photomatix Pro to make the HDR shot:


These HDR pics can get really wierd and wild looking, mine is more conservative i think.




*dont say anything about my 4x4, my tein ss-p are on the way!

** oh and if you noticed the 2 dark spots near the top of my fender... a homeless woman in San Francisco was sitting on my car with her feet up against a parking meeter so all her weight was pushed against my fender and now i have a permanent memory of her ASS!!

needs to be brighter ( make sure your gamma settings on your computer are correct)

still looks better than the other HDR's Ive seen on the site ( this one looks much more realistic)

but your brush tool needs work ( ive never made a HDR but it seems like you need to clean it when you combine the images right ? )

i never used a brush on that pic, only photoshop i used was when i aligned the pic (i was stupid and didnt use a tripod) and then when i cropped it and put my sig in, other than that, all the effect were done in Photomatix.

Photomatix. Just use the bracketing feature on your 20D, and make sure it's on a tripod, and then open up your 3 photos in Photomatix.

There is also a tool in Photoshop to do it. If you go to File > Automate > Merge to HDR you can do it.

i was bored so I gave HDR a try.
didn't feel like going out... so took some underexposed pictures I had changed exposure and brightness on photoshop and mashed them together.
Not as clean and crisp as doing it from separate photos but still interesting I thought.
