Haven't done much with HDR over the years, although sometimes I do like to over-saturate and over-sharpen things to get that HDR look. I know the over-processed look is not always popular, but sometimes, you just gotta push the sliders to 11!!! We were on Spring Break in Florida about a week ago, and I am always paranoid to take my nice camera and lenses with me on trips like this for fear of getting them lost or stolen from the hotel or car, so I end up in the most beautiful places with my backup camera most of the time. (Sorta defeats the purpose of having a nice camera, eh?) These were taken with my old D90 with the 18-105 kit lens, and even for its age, it does a decent enough job, even with the kit lens. The first image is the only true HDR out of the bunch, a 3-shot, 1-stop merge, processed in NIK HDR Efx Pro. The second shot is a pseudo-HDR (single-shot) processed in Oloneo Photo Engine, and the last 2 are just single shots that were pushed over the limit in Lightroom. I had issues getting the cloud formations I wanted with the right compositions, so I ended up with a lot of horizons in the middle of the frame which is a real no-no in some circles, but these are just for fun anyway, so "what the hey"! The second shot is pretty soft, and honestly should be a throw-away, but I loved the clouds, so I went ahead and played with it anyway. I used the lens correction profile in LR, but still see some pin-cushioning on the horizons, especially with #4. If these were true "keepers" I would probably spend some more time on them to clean up some of the artifacts, but these at least provide a nice memory of our trip as we are now back to the grind of every day life! Thanks for looking, and I would love to hear some suggestions from the HDR experts (other than over-saturated, which I know and did purposely!).
