HDR does "lose proper coloring" however it evens out the exposure across the entire photo. By illuminating the darker areas, dulling out the brighter areas one has the ability to adjust the photo exposure. By adjusting the layers of exposure the photo regains all of it's detail in all the areas.. The detail that was lost in the darker area was illuminated as the detail in the brighter areas was brought back by dimming them out.. True the colors are squied a bit which can be adjusted in Post Processing (if you know how to do that which I don't) but the color issue is acceptable to me for the detail...

here is a better illustration of what HDR does for you..

Taken from a Nasioc Memeber.. Page 17. --> http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...262516&page=17


Standard Photo.. Look GREAT but if you look you will see a lot lost detail in some areas of the photo..





Now here is an HDR photo.. Looks GREAT also but has less if any detail loss..

i thought HDR implied a dynamic range of lighting. how can you have a dynamic(changing) range(many values between two set values) of light in a static photograph? unless you took the same photo multiple times with different exposures and blended them together to give the illusion of a dynamic range of light?

nice shots though, regardless.

That is exactly what you are seeing here. The HDR is a 32 bit composite of all the data taken during multile exposures.

3 is the minimum. You can do as many adjustments to the exposure as the camera will allow. The more different exposures you have the more light/shadow detail you are going to pick up.

there is no way you can get shots like these

http://www.vanilladays.com/gallery/u...verpool-05.jpg

without intense computer editing. you cant take 3 pictures of the same crowd of pissed off people and not get substantial blurring. even if your camera could take 3 shots, adjust the f-stop and exposure in less then a second, you would still have bluring from motion.

I think both shots are amazing, you can't get a good HDR photo if your origional photos suck.. But I like the fact that you simply see more detail..

Definitly try it out.. But don't make our noob mistake.. HDR photos are best in dim light with multiple light sources.. You can't get a good final produce when all your exposure photos are over exposed by sunlight like our first few attempts.. We also really didn't know how to adjust it either.. Read up on those links, I learned A TON reading them..
