…Okay. Welcome to the first challenge.…This is where you have the opportunity to get…hands-on and experiment with how the images are processed.…I'm not going to give you any guidance to start, I'm just…going to show you the initial image, and what I turned it into.…Now, you're welcome to do your own development…process and, in fact, I'd like you to…try to apply some of the techniques we've…shared in this course to get the end result.…So, here's the first before and after.…You'll notice the image on the left is the single image from this bracketed series.…
This is a traditional three-exposure type HDR, so you'll have one additional image…that helped capture the details of the shadows, and one for the highlights.…On the right is the completed HDR.…And what I was trying to go for was really rich…blacks and to bring out the earth tones in the rock.…You'll note that I've preserved the original color with pretty good fidelity.…I intensified the contrast in the blacks, but I didn't…push the red of the rock to something hyper real.…
