Yaquina Bay Bridge, Newport, Oregon, USA
Camera: K-30 Photo Location: Newport, OR 
Posted By: NewportPreacher, 12-03-2012, 11:54 AM

I took this last September and it has been well-recieved by people around here. In fact, it was selected for the cover of a calendar that a local print shop does every year, which features local photographers.
Curiously enough, this was shot with the K-30's in-camera HDR, but I saved the image as a RAW file and worked from that. I don't generally like the JPGs that the K-30 puts out in the in-camera HDR, but I save the good ones as a RAW file and have great results with those.

Holy crap that's fantastic. I didn't even know you can create an HDR in camera and save as RAW. The sunlight and the normal HDR bloom works wonderfully well together in this shot.

Impressive result! I've never really tried the in-camera HDR on my K-5. Guess I should check it out.

I dont think you can. Correct me if I'am wrong, but if you save the raw picture from a HDR, you just save the last picture that was used to create the HDR. Can anyone confirm this?

Wow fantastic work. I find a lot of HDR to be over the top but this one is sensational Certainly a technique I have not really had a go at but you have inspired me to have a go.

Well, when reviewing an in-camera HDR, if you hit the exposure compensation button, it prompts you to let you know that you can save the RAW data "from this JPEG" (I think that's the language) as a separate RAW file. I don't know if it's saving the HDR JPEG as a RAW, or what, but it gives a nice effect that, for me, has worked as a basis for a nice HDR image, on occasion. It's a hassle, as you have to save it as a RAW before shooting another shot, but it does seem to work.

Thank you all for the kind words and I am glad you appreciate the image.

That is an exquisite image!

I don't see how it is possible to create a raw from a jpg. Jpg is 8 bit raw is 16. I believe what is happening is the camera uses the raw to create the jpg and has the raw still in memory.
I assume you used some software and processing on the image posted other then a straight conversion to jpg?
