Daisy Smiles in HDR



Ok, first of all thanks Viv for the tip on Photomatix.
This is a rework of a blown out picture that I previously posted. The colors are a little funny and sort of make her look scary, but the clarity is leaps and bounds ahead of where it was. I used Canon's fileviewer utility to alter the exposure of a single raw file and combine them into a single image in Photomatix. I played around with the controls until I got something I liked and then did some editing of the contrast and sharpness in PSE2. I also added a Gradient mask to tone down some of the color a little since I had not figured out the best way to get more of the colors I wanted without oversaturating the image. There are still some hot spots, but at least Daisy no longer has a hot head. Smile So, enough said....Here it is for your viewing pleasure. Here is a link to the old picture for comparison. http://www.photographyblog.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=79803&limit=recent

This is much better. There is so much extra detail in her coat. She still has one hot spot. On the colour subject, do you have a sponge tool in PS for increasing and decreasing areas of saturation? The only other way is to get plug in masks. The output from Photomatix is aways very saturated particularly so don't set the slider for that too high - Chappo makes fun of my reds! Viv

You lost me in the explanation, but the clarity is exceptional. The eyes are perfect. It's a 10 plus. Good dogs are hard to find. Smile

Thanks Viv and Amanda! Smile Viv, I just found it. Who knew that the sponge did that! Wink I just went to the local library and got a book to help me with some of these commands. Thanks for another great tip!
-Regards
