perfectway76: Sounds great!! I'm new to HDR photography--could anyone recommend a program I could download for this? ( 5 years and 1872 days ago )
Contest Moderator: It is not required, but it would be really nice to post the unedited image/images in the SBS, so everybody can see what can be done. ( 5 years and 1870 days ago )
captgeo: @perfectway...there are a bunch out there... But I would highly recommend Photomatix. You might even get a free trial from their website. ( 5 years and 1870 days ago )
lincemiope: I recommend also

Dynamic Range (a program)
Lucis Art (a plugin for photoshop),

but be careful not to set colors too sharp or too much noise.
Often just use multiple levels of fusion.

Wayne Cheah: Whatever the "brand" of software you use, go for the user-friendly type. Some of them require a certain level of acquired expertise before you can even start creating anything. Just google Hdr and you will get reviews of various software out there, both for purchase, with free-trials and for free. I am slowly becoming a fan as literally a whole new world of possibilities opens up. Good luck. ( 5 years and 1870 days ago )
