So, ive been doign alot of research.. experimenting.. and lots of precious devoted time into trying to produce legit HDR's. Ill throw some #'s, roughly 1000 images, sunny days, cloudy days, dark rooms with lots of ambient, and some others... ive tried everything i could think of/read and i cannot get the results ive seen from others. i use cs2 and from what i know, im doing everything correctly. most my shots are 1 stop, up to 9 frames. 4 over and 4 under, 1 correct EV. ive got one shot of a car that came out... ~ok~. but i wanna beable to incorperate HDR into portraiture and fast moving action. this is a high comparison.. higher then my expectations for rite now, but somthing i like very much and keep trying to duplicate. but i cant figure it out. www.garylandphotography.com. and its not just his work, alot of photogs have outstanding hdr portraits where they come to life. look 3D and real. ive read and checked every online article and tutorial that any search engin could find.. so please help me out besides saying "google it". thanks alot, much appreciation. Keith.
