I have not been around much and would really like to not be a moderator of the Highlands and Islands group any more. Will anyone volunteer to be one? Not a lot of work but the group needs someone more regular than me.

Re processed old one using the workflow in HDR Cookbook. It is much better and more in focus. I was never happy with the orignal because I lost some of the detail.

The shot:

Hand held
Nikon D80
Sigma 10 – 20mm at 10mm
3 autobracketted RAW files at + and – 2

Pre Tonemapping:

In ACR extra 2 shots created at +.4 and – 4
All 5 RAW files converted to 16 bit Tiffs (not sure how to do 32 bit but probably easy)
All 5 Tiffs individually given noise reduction using Topaz De Noise
All 5 Tiffs individually run through Topaz Infocus

Tone Mapping:

All 5 Tiffs tonemapped in photomatix to creat 16 bit HDR Tiff
Detail enhancer used

Post Tonemapping processing:

Into CS3
Topaz Adjust colour pop filter applied to get the colours back
Layer mask to add more saturation to the sky to make it pop a bit more

    Excellent work – one to sit back and simply dream while looking at all the details.
