HDR or High Dynamic Range. Sometimes we miss the dynamic range from the old film days. However, HDR offers some interesting possibilities, and we have quite a lot of fun playing around with it. A little goes a long way but sometimes it's fun to go the whole hog too.... I you want to know more; Vanilla Days offer a good HDR Tutorial!
A peek inside
So here we are, taking a peek inside the red door of the Depilated Gas Station. A bit of a mess in here, it looks like what it is – a place long abandoned and forgotten.
This is an HDR from 5 raw frames. We had some problems with noise in the deep shadows. It looks like Photomatix is picking up the noise speckles as it has higher macro contrast than the real image. It can probably be fixed by converting the raw frames before merging.
