Here is my third image I've worked on thinking "HDR", although for this one I did not use 3 separately exposed raw files (yes I worked with raw for my first two), instead I used one raw file processed 3 times into tiff files with different "exposure" settings that I had adjusted in camera raw. I tried out the new photomatix program that everyone recommended, and then adjusted it a bit in the tonal mapping part of the process. I did not do any post work otherwise, no contrast/saturation, etc, just wanted to test the program out. The mountain isn't too great yet and I'm hoping some attention in PS will do it justice, I also wonder what I should be shooting for when adjusting everything using Photomatix. Personal preference? Are there general guidelines? Elsewhere on the forum I assume? I'm looking... One of my other questions is about the "gamma". What it is, what it does and why. I'll look it up...tomorrow. In the mean time you guys are smart and experienced and your advice is great! OH - one more thing. I know this is gonna sound bad. What is causing the vignetting on my stupid *&$#! lens and how do I fix it? (P&S Fugifilm) Thanks!
