HDR Workshop #37 - Back from its slumber...
« on: May 30, 2013, 04:34:12 AM »
Thought I'd just chuck one in here for those of you who wish to partake!  :)

I was playing golf in France last weekend and took my camera along. Took very few photo shots and far too many golf shots :(

We were staying in a very plush hotel (http://www.lucienbarriere.com/en/luxury-hotel/Dinard-Grand-Hotel-Barriere/home.html) at ridiculously low rates because of the time of year!

I sneaked into the restaurant one afternoon and managed to fire off a few bracketed shots of a section of it, thinking that they might be interesting to play around with on the Forum.

Only 3 shots at -2, 0 and +2 as that was what I already had my camera set to and was in a bit of a rush!

Feel free to download the RAWs from the links below. These are obviously SOOC and so you are welcome to straighten, crop, and do as you wish with them :)

Have fun!

I used to be a very negative person... but then I went digital.

Woo - looking forward to giving it a go...

I was actually thinking of putting up one of Portmeirion bracketed sets a couple of days ago for this sort of thing!

Wow!   That's nice Snapper.  Colors are amazing, and yet don't look too over the top.  Very sharp too - you must have used a tripod?

Sorry, I can't play these games because my internet connection is too slow to download the RAW files.

Good luck Zubbuz :)

Thanks, Ochotona - no time for a tripod so put my monopod to use :)

Now I see my effort again, the blue from the windows needs toning down a little. I might redo it...  :-\

I used a new (to me) HDR program called Machinery. It's the light version, but I like what it did for this image.

Looks nice, ARPhot - how easy and intuitive is it to use, compared to, say, Photomatix?

It has a boatload of presets and the navigation is not too difficult. Like any new program, it takes a little getting used to. The version I have is free but worth it to test drive. And the full version price is very attractive.

Dave, I like those but that second one seems to appeal to me a little more.  Well done!
Take your camera with you dammit. You can't take your next "best photo" if your camera is sitting at home in the bag, now can you?

Do keep up, Suka!  ;)

Anyone is more than welcome to make some RAW files available via Dropbox or similar...

Anyone?

I was gonna try my (late) hand at it, but my Adobe Elemenets 10 wouln't open the pic. Thoughts? Or am I just too blond-like... Awaiting diagnosis.
