Lamar River Valley Sunset (HDR)

by ckiely » Sat Mar 18, 2006 8:05 pm

Yellowstone National Park
13-MAR-2006

Fuji S3 Pro
Nikon 50mm 1.8 (prime)

24 source images (3x8)
Approximately: Top row -2ev, bottom row +2ev... hard anchors across the bottom row to keep the snow white. Then brought the sky back down in Photoshop. Reducing the exposure level won't introduce noise the way that trying to bring detail out of the darkness will.

Nice sky and it looks quite realistic for an HDR image, dramatic without over doing it.

Nice man. Must have been some hellacious temperatures when you shoot these. Did you get any wildlife panos?

Actually, yes. I decided that I would try some detailed environmental wildlife shots. So, what I did was take a full frame pic of an animal (landscape), then shoot 3 more shots (e.g. left, upper left and above) to compositionally put the animal in one corner w/o overlap and have portrait detail in an environmental shot.

I'll post some shots soon.

Fuji S3 and HDR: how are you using S3 in such situations: RAW? special low contrast setting? (this camera looks like a partial answer to the HDR question but its RAW images have a huge MB size: actually, that's the main reason I'm affraid of buying one!)

Georges: I love this camera, but right now APP is not configured to take advantage of the Wide Dynamic Range of the S3. Actually the best results from the S3 come from WDR shots that are converted w/ Adobe Camera RAW. But... that alters what's in the file vs. the EXIF data so the results are off. Bit of a catch-22 actually.
