an old woman in the central market Hanoi Vietnam (5 years and 2549 days ago)

Oh dear... I am very sorry to say this, but this HDR treatment is REALLY not doing the image justice. The photo is very flat, lacks contrast. I don't think that HDR suits portraiture.

I would love to see this image in normal color or maybe even in a high contrast Black and White.

I agree. HDR is definitely not suitable for this kind of shot. Im sure it was great before. GL !

I'm not sure that I agree with the last two comments completely. I like the way HDR looks on older peoples skin, the background is too busy for B&W, if you converted it the woman would be lost amongst the crap behind her and make the whole image very flat. I think this photo could stand to be cropped a bit nicer but other than that I like it

I think it would look okay with HDR, but not to this extent.

avatar RayTedwell

Have you tried cropping it so it cuts into the back/top of her head (to remove the basket)? I think this would help. I do like the HDR on this subject.

I agree with Bartoszwozniak. I will hold my vote to see if there is any changes.

I thought it was a little over-saturated myself. It might look better in grayscale as Bart suggested.

Howdie stranger!
