Hey Everyone,

This is a shot that I took in the Tetons. It is shot using Roman's HDR method where I exposed the same photo twice, one for shadow and one for light and put them together. I also cloned out a bit of shrubbery around the moose's antler. The question is - does it work? The original photo was taken with a 2 stop filter (thank you, Singh Ray) to help keep the sky in check while photographing the moose.

Anyway - your honest feedback is helpful.

Thanks
James

James,
I like this a lot. The composition is very good and the elements are awesome. I like what you did in terms of the HDR effect but I also like what Roman was able to squeeze out of it in his effort. Where I don't like Roman's version is in the sky area. For me, that's always the hardest thing to control in tone-mapping. But the rest of the image really pops in Roman's version.

You have to decide which represents what you were looking for in your original captures. But, overall, this is a very nice image.

Jim

If I had a full sized version, you would be OK with the sky. Its just hard to edit on a small .jpg.

True. Wasn't sure what you were working from.

I agree with Roman that the mountains need to pop more. However I also agree with Jim that the sky in Roman's looks over processed and maybe just a little over saturated overall. I also think it could stand a touch of sharpening. Here is my edit on the low res jpg incorporating these ideas.

I like both Roman and George's edits. I would like to see what Roman's looks like large. I don't like the halos that are often seen in HDR, my HDR attempts are horrid, only good for the recycling bin.

Yeah...you know the drill. Do you have a large copy you don't mind me editing?
