Photoshop CS5 HDR

Posted June 2nd, 2010 by   |  Photography, Software, Travel, Uncategorized  |  Permalink

I ran my first HDR image through Photoshop CS5’s new HDR pro utility. I must admit that the program did a very good job of producing a “believable” HDR image. I ran four 14-bit Nikon D700 NEF images through the utility and was impressed with how quickly CS5 rendered the preview. So far, so good.

These images were taken last week in Galveston, Texas.

HDR Image processed through Adobe CS5's new HDR Pro utility. I used four NEFs from a handheld Nikon D700 with 14-24mm f2.8 lens.

Here's one of the original images. You can see that the new HDR image doesn't look too heavily processed. I like the results I'm seeing.
