First try at a “Real” HDR

Posted on July 15, 2011


After reading the “HDR Best Practices Guide” by Brian Matiash I am attempting to refine my HDR work.  As a newbie, I was fascinated by the ultra-halos and psychedelic colors, but I now see the artful qualities that can be had with some restrain and vision.  Here is my first “Refined HDR.”   It is the same sunflower from last week, but I was more delicate with the sliders in Dynamic-Photo HDR and I added a background from one of the darker frames in GIMP.  I would really like some constructive criticism on ways to improve my work.  As always, thanks in advance.
