Minaret Lake HDR Panorama

Postby maverick » Wed Aug 05, 2009 5:41 pm

5 frames wide, 3 shots per frame and blended in one HDR, a total of 15 shots.
Give it few seconds to load, and the resolution is not as good of coarse
on the computer screen.

That's just mind boggling.
How do you manage to combine three exposures when the water is rippling (and thus not matching)?
And also stitch them afterwards, with a similar difficulty I would imagine?

It works in most cases.
This photo is also a HDR made of 3 photo's at different exposure combined and the
cascade turned out fine, no over exposure in the water, and the detail in the
shaded area's are good.
If this would have been a single photo I would have had to expose for the water and
the shaded area's would have had been much, much darker.
One the other hand if I compromised for both the shaded and highlights the photo
would have been a compromise.

Thanks for the reply.
The impression i am getting is that photoshop (or photomatrix) is smart enough to make the differences in water ripples between the 3 exposures seem natural/unnoticeable

Very lovely pic of the cascade too
