heres the original
and the HDR
would love to hear thoughts im pretty happy with how it looks!
HDR really needs 3 different exposures. You did create an HDR image out of that shot but try with 3 differently exposed images. Watch the noise in the shot. Get a tripod out and shoot at a really low ISO 100. With the tripod you wont need to worry about the shutter speed.
I think you went a bit too far. It looks kinda fake. There's also a lot of noise. What EV setting did you use?
Edit: You used a single exposure?
it is 3 different exposures i didnt wanna post all 3 since itll be huge -2 0 +2 tripod was used
just checked iso was like 800 which explains the noise
i wanted the fake look i was going for dramatic effect
It definitely has that trademark HDR look. Now just tone down the dramatic effect and you have a nice picture.
If you were going for that effect great job. But A tru HDR image looks realistic not cartoony. but the shot looks nice
although i like how the first one came out i like the "fake" look but is this one better? more realistic atleast?
The second one is much better. It has good HDR quality still a little bit of the cartoonish look but not to bad really.
here is my HDR, in the real world, I would never be able to get the log cabin and the mountain in the same exposure in one shot. This is a combo of about 8 pictures.
