    Ok, so after reading few tutorials, tried to do some tone mapping myself.... and I feel like i am missing something there!

    So here is the original JPEG picture that came out of my camera along with the RAW (my computer is old, that is quicker to have JPEG to delete everything I don't want)

    Applyed some tone mapping with photomatix

    Not to sure that it is such an improvement after looking at it few times...


    After I try to use this in photoshop. the tone mapped photo was missing loads of color in my opinion, so I tried to get some from the original raw. did light, contrast and saturation so my original picture was looking fairly similar in lighting to the tone mapped one, and then used an overlay layer with it to add the color... which add a lot of dark in the tree though...[​IMG]

    any way to add this color without adding so much dark in the picture?? or a best way to do this? Thanks for the help!!

    you have to mask off the treeline and make a layer.
