Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Producing a realistic HDR image, part of Learning HDR (2012).
I can certainly appreciate a creative or even a wildly dramatic interpretation of …a scene using HDR. But in many cases, especially when the …scene is a little bit more of a traditional landscape for example, I …prefer to produce a more natural effect. I want to maximize the amount of detail …and highlight some shadows for example. But I don't want the image to look like …an obvious HDR. And I certainly don't want it to look …like an artistic interpretation as opposed to a photographic image. …Here you can see a wild interpretation of this natural scene.…
A lake with some mountains in the background, clouds in the sky, and, of …course, the mountains here were a little bit back lit, so there's a lot of shade there. …And not a lot of detail, and the clouds were very, very bright, so overall a …rather high dynamic range scene, but one that I would like to interpret in a more …photorealistic way. Let's take a look at some of the …adjustments you'll want to think about when you're looking for a more natural interpretation. …
