    Hi,

    I've been getting into High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI) photography lately. It's a lot of fun and I am finding that I can communicate my perceptions of a scene or space much more effectively with the technique.

    Here's a sunset landscape I shot recently using HDRI Techniques. You can find out more about this shot at my blog

    sunset?? this is a great shot, too bad that the HDR kinda kills the dramatic-ness of the would be shadows.

    this is one of the best HDRs I've seen in a while...

    Thanks!

    Yes, the sun was setting off frame to the right. The disk of the sun was still above the horizon, mountains, by one and a half diameters or so but it was so close to technical sunset that I would not have had the opportunity to relocate the camera.

    I think the shadows are just strong enough to be "there" and carry weight but not loose critical detail. My goal with HDRI is to achieve the reproduction of the human perception of a scene. Shadows that are to deep, highlights that are too bright are a common failing of conventional photographic reproduction.

    I've moved this to the Graphics Programs & Photo Gallery forum, as the Alternative Forum is for analog processes.

    Nice work! :)

    Thanks guys,

    I'm really pleased with the results on this image. And the HDRI process is really cool. I can see taking it and it taking me a long way.

    Wonderful photo and great HDR processing :) I'm glad you didn't overprocess it.

    I agree with most of what people are saying: it's a FANTASTIC HDR shot! It's hard to imagine what old-school film shooters would have to do to create this type of shot (if it's even possible?).

    I don't think it kills the drama, but I'm sure a liberal use of some creative dodging & burning could bring a lot of it back if done well.
