Nice work Prashant. Probably those will look better if they are not HDR.

Isolated land and trees surrounded by water shot is a good one.

BTB, leave your comment on the quality of video taken from your cam in techinewbei's thread

@nac All my pics minus the clouds are the non HDR version. They look plain. This time I have tried to keep the HDR effect to minimum and increase the Dynamic range to DSLR level. Except for last two, do you feel you would know those images were HDR if not mentioned in title? :)

When you said "Non HDR" in the very first line, I thought I was wrong. Factually speaking, I didn't notice the title. I convinced that they are HDR either by your previous HDRs or by the images I see from Photomatix.

I feel it's better if the image doesn't look like a water painting. I don't wanna go with HDR definition, if it says so... (No offense meant buddy, just my view)

Following are some of the images I got when I googled "Photographic HDR". These don't seem to be undergone some heavy editing and didn't look like water painting. This is simple and good.

Now I am confused. I aint taking any offense buddy just saying that do yo feel my pics 1-10 look artificial or ghost-like or heavily processed or water painting. I am asking so that I can improve :)

I am glad you didn't take it that way. But I have seen people start :boxing: out of it.

In a forum, one guy posted his work and the other one commented on it. The guy who posted his photographs turned red after seeing that comment and replied something like this (just assume a tough guy who has some low pitch voice) "Hey! smart axx first you show us some of your work, then I will decide what you're fxxxing comment worth" :punch:

You see why I said that...

Question???

I don't see any heavy editing in the first 3 images. Slightly off or over editing in the next four images and 9th & 10th. Last two is sure on the heavier side. 8th is the best in my view. So far I have seen that particular image more than half a dozen times in the last 1+ hour.

@prashant its not about who like it and who doesnt....but self check the image...ur last 2 images doesnt match the quality of previous ones...in last batch 1st one is over processes and 2nd one bit dull..

and many many photo enthusiast do not like HDR processing due to the minor difference between looks good and over processesd

@sujoy 100% agree with you. I have grown up seeing the HDR work of another guy who is very good at it. So I am over enthusiastic about it. About the rainbow, I cannot do anything. Took that shot handheld with 1/13s shutter and it was dark outside so it came out dull.
Nice shots Ram. Last one has too much yellow though

thx @ sujoy, nice clicks prashant..

@prashant its not about who like it and who doesnt....but self check the image...
very true..

Prashant is it a hdr effect you used, ie. on a single shot, or did you use bracketing and took multiple shots? for what i see in your exif info its a single shots with hdr effect :)

Took 5 shots. Aligned and merged using Photomatrix Enhancer Smooth preset to get noise free single image. That single image was processed with Oloneo Photoengine to get HDR effect. Final processing in Lightroom to crop the unaligned edges and slight noise reduction. Reason for this exercise : Photomatrix HDR is too noisy and dark too. But its alignment is very good. Oloneo's HDR processing is very good but its alignment is crap.

@abhidev thanks
