HDR is more suitable for Mono in my eyes

I think most people would agree that HDR is a fine art to get a realistic photo out the other end. Main problem is keeping the colours looking realistic. Well I have a solution Convert it to Mono !!! Now you are only dealing with tones, so all those unrealistic colours don't matter . Example shot posted in "Photo Manipulation" section :- http://www.pixalo.com/community/phot...html#post92058

The example in the link is probably the extremes of HDR processing, as you can imagine trying to expose for that original shot. The colour HDR version looked like a water painting, however much I played with the settings.

Have I convinced more people to shoot Mono now

Re: HDR is more suitable for Mono in my eyes

okies who can explain in simple terms what exactly is HDR..... I know we have probably all seen HDR images without sometimes even realising what we are looking at so...as I am sure I am not the only one wondering what it is in terms of processing etc?

Re: HDR is more suitable for Mono in my eyes

I think is suits both disciplines and I have started to play with HDR recently, again using Photomatix. This isn't the best example as I blew out the clouds on the right and my mono processing isn't great but it overall I'm reasonably pleased with the result.

Re: HDR is more suitable for Mono in my eyes

Like the idea there Colin, but would you not agree the colours look like they have been painted on ? ...which is fine if that is what you are after

I think the reason is due to the S/W softening & lightening the shadow detail, which in turn makes the shots seem flatter....more 2D feel to the shot than 3D.

Re: HDR is more suitable for Mono in my eyes

I've done a couple of attempts at HDR - the first for a friend's business, which uses projection screens combined with black equipment in a dark room. I did the combination of the two exposures manually, so I don't know if it counts as true HDR...



I also tried a recent shot I got in HK, using multiple JPGs obtained from a RAW, which turned out reasonably well, bringing out the building outlines without too drastically over-exposing the point light sources:
