HDR tutorial – part 3

It took me longer than expected, but finally I have added the third part to my HDR tutorial. This one focuses on different problems that can arise in tone-mapped HDR and how to solve them.

I hope it will be helpful at least for some of you. If you find any errors, or you can understand some part, feel free to comment and I will try to reply.

You can look at the whole HDR tutorial or jump directly to the new part.

The ceiling of the Lady Chapel

Just to add to the variability on my blog I edit old photos from time to time. And this is one from my visit to Liverpool in 2010. I’m always a little sad when editing old photos, as I know I could have taken them better. But there are also good memories from the trips so it evens thing out :)

Explore Front page

This was quite a surprise for me. A second photo this week got onto the front page of Flickr explore selection. This makes it 5 photos in total that got there. Thank you everyone for visiting, commenting and faving my photos at Flickr :)

Screen in the Liverpool Cathedral

The screen is in the middle. There were preparations for some award show (or something like it) when I was there. So that’s why it was there. I went for a little darker and cooler look for this shot. I also did double tone-mapping here to get even bore details in this shot. For anyone who hasn’t heard of double tone-mapping yet, it means,  that when you process your photo in Photomatix, and you finish, you just hit tone-mapping again. On photos like this, where you have a lot of detail, this can create very nice results.

Clouds over Albert dock

Ok. Enough with Prague at least for few days :) So back to Liverpool :). This shot was taken in October last year. It looks like there was a nice weather from this photo, but in reality it was very cold. The sun came out like this only for few minutes.
