Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Solution: Preserving original color and applying contrast, part of Up and Running with Photomatix Pro.
…Okay, let me show you how I did it.…How did we take three images from an HDR series shot in the desert and create…something that was compelling, with vivid tones, but not over the top HDR?…Let's take these three images into Photomatix Pro and we'll merge them.…These particular images were taken on a tripod.…But I will check for ghosts.…This is partially because we have clouds, as well as some movement on the road.…I definitely want to reduce the noise in the images.…
And because it's a high contrast photo, I reduce chromatic aberrations.…Let's do some selective deghosting here for a second.…And zoom in. All…right.…So the shots here, if you look very closely, you could see that…we have a little bit of a trail on the edge of the car.…So let's choose that and preview the deghosting.…And the car snaps in nice and clean.…That worked out well, and of course,…later with post-processing, I probably actually remove…this other photographer in my shot, these…distracting blue boxes, and probably the car altogether.…
But we're just…
