    Gorgeous work hun. I am interested in knowing how you tone map your single shots. :D

  • Thanks Jackie! You can do that In Photomatix from the file menu, Instead of choosing load bracketed shots, just choose open!

    I may have to look into purchasing Photomatix. I have tried it out before on one of my cards… but didn’t have the money to purchase. And I kind of “tone mapped” a picture of 2 in PSP. :D But I like how you do it because you don’t overprocess and make it look fake like some do.

  • No, I don’t like that either. I want hdr to do what it’s supposed to do, even out the overexposed and underexposed parts. A pretty good substitute is LuminanceHDR which is free, but you must use 3 or more bracketed shots and render times are a little longer.
