HDR no way original much better....


Thanks for all your comments about my last post I have to agree that the HDR did not really work, but you never know until you try that is what art is all about. The original image is above along with a few more that I put together in a montage. Adrian gave me a link to a website that includes HDR images of people. Check it out there great. www.davehillphoto.com Thanks Adrian.

These are all fabulous photos and I am certain that your subjects are thrilled with the results.

Digital photography and blogging to share our "try outs" and ideas are a wonderful combination. My work has benefitted from experiments and reader feedback along with the experiences of other photographers.

Thanks for your contributions!

Bises,

I like this better. Maybe like the two ladies said on the previous post, perhaps HDR doesn't do well on people. I've not tried it and doubt I ever will, but good on you for going there.

I never ever shoot for HDR without setting up the camera to full manual. A meter reading from a grey card. The full works...........I also have a very long woody nose.
The grey which is neutral grey at 50% is what the algorithm produces if proper digital data is not fed in...........crap in, crap out.
Although on a perfect shot recorded in JPEG you can get an Approximation of HDR Why Oh Why bother. It's a tool to overcome the current limitations of digital dynamic range. Hey I'll shut up, I've wrote nearly as much as what you have.

In this case no doubt the original is better. Another occasion might be better for experiments, perhaps?

If you're not already familiar with it/him, here is a link to a blog by a photographer (Dan Felstead) who I think is really good at the combination of HDR and portraits:

I appreciate the occasions for learning you bring us.

I really like the montage and the original photo a lot more than the HDR. I think it was a good experiment though, and as the saying goes, nothing ventured nothing gained.
