Albigensian Holiday - Albi, France HDR

Albigensian Holiday - Albi, France HDR

I have lessened the barrel-effect of my Sigma 10-20 lens - for comparison's sake.

I like the shot and the buildings in this. HDR works well on stone and brick structures. I am nor sure what to say about the sky. I certainly prefer the more realistic HDRs and this falls into that category. But at the end of the day it depends on the effect you want to create. Viv

When I retrieve my Photoshop LAYERS book, I shall definitely look to the sky. It is a tad weak, agreed. Thanks for the positive input.

overall I really like this one. I am a big fan of hdr and the majority of my shots are processed using it, but I prefer the more subtle approach myself. This falls into that category I feel and the foreground and buildings are spot on. As viv says, the sky lets this one down a little. I have learnt from experience that skies can be a complete b*****d using hdr and it is not always easy or even possible to rescue them. I find that if the sky is buggered in the hdr software - then it is not likely to be rescuable in ps. what hdr software do you use? I use photomatix myself which I find to be the best. If I was processing this one myself, the only thing I would do is within the S/H tab - I would have put the highlights smoothing bar to about 30 or 31.

Skies! There seems to be a large 'gash' here - shaped like a fish-hook? I shall try a layer-mask in PS and change the contrast/brightness; or even 'borrow' a sky from another photo. Photomatix generated this one, but I am going to do an FDRTools version if possible (and Qtpfsgui) for comparison. I am encouraged that I have done at least three HDRs that viewers have deemed 'natural' - finding my way at last. Thankyou.
