It looks like an oil painting because of my hackjob in editing. First time trying the SNS-HDR software combined with one of my first HDR landscape attempts. The originals are a bit sharper but lack that usual super sharp appeal of most cityscapes. I also think I could have used just 3 bracketed exposures instead of 5.
I am going to work on a single image fromt the bracketed set.
Thanks. This is about 10 minutes from home so I definitely plan on going back for more attemps. Just waiting on the right light on the right day when I'm not working or happen to wake up at 4am like this one.
A good idea is to choose which is the darkest exposure you want. Go to Lightroom and set everything to zero. See if there is any clipping in the highlight, any darker exposure is not needed given that the one with more exposure don't have any clipping in the highlight.
