Let’s have some fun with High Dynamic Range photography. Please keep your entries closer the the side of Farktography rather than complete Photoshopping when possible.November 15, 2007 at 3:40 pm #14102

I’ve never done HDR before, but after a quick skim through that last tutorial, I see many, many uses for it, and cant wait to give it a shot.
This is what makes me love Farktography. I stop being such a scaredy cat and try out new things. Even if I do end up with coffee beans on pink plates. 😳November 15, 2007 at 4:26 pm #14104schneeParticipant

Is there any free Windows-based software out there that would allow me to compete in this contest? I would really like to try this, but I can’t afford a copy of Photoshop.November 15, 2007 at 5:43 pm #14106
IIRC, Photomatix has a free trial version that puts a small watermark in the corner of the photo, but that it’s easily airbrushed out. Check the HDR board on here; there should be some posts in there about it.November 15, 2007 at 11:45 pm #14107RcMacStudentParticipant
You might try the demo version of Photoshop CS3, IIRC it’s a 30 day, full feature demo.November 16, 2007 at 12:16 am #14108November 16, 2007 at 12:51 am #14109
Good call, linguine. That’s what I use under Linux with good results.November 16, 2007 at 5:40 am #14110millera9Participant
The Gimp is also free and there are scripts that can be downloaded to take different images and combine them to make an HDR. It’s what I used for last year’s contest.November 16, 2007 at 1:32 pm #14111linguineParticipant
I used gimp too last year, but it doesnt include tonemapping so it looks a little different. Heres one I did using gimp:
And heres what the same shots look like using qptfsgui:

Mmmm…nnnyeesss….*strokes beard*….. I do believe I’ll be downloading that tonight!November 20, 2007 at 4:02 am #14114corsec67Participant
Wow, you have a ton of ghosting in the clouds there. One advantage to doing it in Gimp is that you can paint out the layer mask in areas like that to make it all one of the layers. That is pretty cool, though, in an more abstract-art kind of way. Probably took about 1 min in qtpfsgui, though.
OK, that qtpfsgui is pretty nifty:
