I finally read in my camera instructions how to bracket shoot images in RAW. Here is my first HDR post on TN.


I hope all you HDR experts out there will share with me your knowledge on the best way to process HDR images in Photoshop. I am a Photoshop ACE, but admit to a lack of knowledge in this area.

Hello Michael, I am not expert in either Photoshop or HDR but HDR interests me a lot because of the superb results we see most of the time. Your picture is very interesting and the subject too, with all the contrasts. But underneath the cloud, it is way too dark, don't you think? I'm sad I cannot help on the technique but I tip my hat to you to try and explore this new avenue. What did you use for the HDR, is it Photoshop? In your picture, where it's not too dark, the result is beautiful. Thank you and please post again in HDR!

Hello Michael,
This is a neat image showing a lot of contrast and color. I do agree though with Francine that the one portion of the cloud looks a little too dark.
I really have no experience shooting in raw, and even less in using photoshop. I hope someday to get someone to show me first hand just how to use these interesting techniques. TFS.
