When I first made HDR photos a couple of years ago, I felt they looked washed out and horrible.
Now that I´ve learned a lot more about still-photography and color-correction,
I figured it was time to give it another go.
I used to process my HDR images in Photoshop, but this time around I wanted to check out some of the software designed to process HDR images.
My tool of choice for these images was Photomatix from HDRsoft.
Each photo consists of 3 images shot in an 1EV interval.The images is also shot handheld. To remove visible camera shake I used the
«remove ghosting» function provided in Photomatix.
Photomatix also have a lot of presets for beginners. I found that these presets did not give me the results I were hoping for at all.
It is best to adjust the sliders within the software, until you get an image you are satisfied with.
These images are all shot on a Canon EOS 450d.
