Redo. Do-over. Mulligan. Whatever. :)

The first attempt.


And the first redo attempt.


Lowered the saturation and increased the contrast after the HDR conversion. Looks much better and the colors are much more true. I could learn to like this. Probably wasn't the best shot to use as a first effort though. :lol:

I didn't take it that way. :) I don't particularly care for the garish colors myself. The detail in the shadows is quite good I think vs. the highlights out the windshield.

I was impressed with how easy it is to get a decent result vs. previous version of CS for a novice user.

I'll try and reduce the saturation like Dave suggested and repost the shot if it turns out. Don't hold your breath. ;)

Operator error to be sure. I don't particularly like the cartoon effect for most shots either, but my technique at this point is unrefined. :o

And I'll agree, not every scene is a candidate for a HDR/tone map process. But I'd defy anyone to create this shot with a single frame and preserve the details inside & outside the car with all the varied light levels. :)

And I don't put ketchup on anything. :lol:

p.s.- this shot was not run through a tone mapping process, it's straight out of the CS5 HDR module.

THe other day I was playing with the tone mapping ability in CS5. Today I went out and shot a couple of sets specifically to test the HDR function in CS5. The light was all over the map because the side windows are tinted & the windshield pretty much isn't. The sunroof is both tinted and has the perforated sun blocker.

For me, HDR in CS4 was painfully difficult. It wasn't very intuitive at all, and I quickly got frustrated trying to use it. HDR in CS5 however, is a whole different ball game. Easy to use and it seems to be quicker than CS4 HDR as well.

This is three shots (-2, 0, +2) from the DA 10-17 fisheye run through the CS5 HDR module as RAW files. Files were straight from the camera. Bear in mind that this is my first shot at trying this. Somebody with more knowledge could very likely get better results, but I think this is indicative of what a novice can accomplish.


I feel this is a vast improvement over the HDR module in CS4. I may actually start shooting with HDR in mind now. :cool:
