Natural Bridge, Albany, Western Australia. Torndirrup National Park

I have been playing around with HDR for a while now with not much success, I’m still learning how to use the Tone Mapping controls with Photomatix. I think this one has come out looking alright, but would love to know what you all think, and what i can do to improve.
The panorama is 10 RAW images turned into HDR with Photomatix, then stitched together

    Great pano and I love the curved horizon. I also like the fact you have managed to capture some activity in the water under the bridge – something I have waited many hours for over the years but always without success. Re the HDR I started off by using Photomatix, which is a great programme, but in the end switched to Dynamic Photo HDR which is easier for my simple mind to follow. You were lucky to be able to use your tripod here – there’s usually so many people milling around it’s well nigh impossible. Great work Sheldon. Regards, Peter

  • thanks Peter, for some reason ive missed this comments! this day was very windy, threatining with rain so i think it may have kept a few people away, and it was also when school was in so not many holiday makers, there was only 1 other person there when we were there, thanks again mate!
