A hdr test as stated. Photomatix is a very very powerful tool to create HDR images. I had alot of fun with it. Just that I do not know how to control the noise level though... =/ oh well practice practice practice... that's all I can do now =/

edit: Oh yeah, it's a 5 photo stitched together in Photoshop CS3, Handheld. :)

I know photomatix has a noise reduction feature you can use. I don't know if you use it or not, but if you do the noise may be from high ISO.

What I do to minimize the noise on my HDR shots is I set my camera at ISO 100 and check the noise reduction box when in photomatix. Other than the noise this is a very stunning photo.

If you want to fix the noise on this photo (if you have photoshop) you can make a duplicate layer of this image and then use gussian blur in the filters window on the duplicate. After you get the blur how you like it you then set the opacity allowing some of the original image to show through. This gives the photo a soft look and also takes care of the noise. Hope this works.

Great shot! For the noise have you tried Noise Ninja? It is supposed to be really great program.

thanks! i tried that and it works :) but ill leave the noise in this shot. Somehow its kind of an appeal for the photo dont ya think? :d

Yeah I think it works even with the noise! It is just an amazing shot. I have never tried HDR but think I am gonna download a free trial of a program to do it. I have cs3 guess I will see what its like in that... Take it easy

Love the picture, lovly setting and defo makes it worth wild in HDR.

Quick question: Did you merge the pano then HDR it or HDR each slice then pano it ?

Did you pay for the licenced version of Photomatix or did you find a way to edit out the watermarks? I'm looking for a free program to make HDR images with that doesn't leave a watermark and can save in .jpeg format.

Mind blowing, one of the best HDR I've seen in ages !

How was it done though ? stitched together then put in photomatix or the otherway around ?
