California Northcoast HDR

Discussion in 'Landscapes, Architecture, and Cityscapes' started by olddogg, Sep 9, 2008.

  1. This was taken in Trinidad. HDR processing in Photomatix from four bracketed exposures. What do ya'll think. Does it appear natural, or is it overcooked. D300 12-24 f16

  2. the ground looks natural (Albeit a bit dark), HOWEVER, the sky and water does not. It has that "highlight reduction" gray that's so problematic.

    I think you can save this with a bit of 2 layer editing, with a gradient mask seperating the ocean line.

    Or go back into Photomatix and clip the whites a lot more :)
