HDR Experiment

Been going over my photos from the Zoo trip and decided to do an experiment with HDR. Taking a single properly exposed photo and doing some tone mapping in Photomatix Pro. Here is the before and after.


Standard Image no Tone Mapping



Image with Tone Mapping

Does one look any better than the other?

  1. This a definite improvement. The brightness and color tones work much better. There is a bit too much saturation in the greens & yellows, I think. Also, if the brightness of the rocks was turned down a touch, the duck (as the central subject) would stand out better.
