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 a single shot (i.e. non-HDR) from the same vantage point. You can see that the new HDR image doesn't look too heavily processed. I like the results I'm seeing.
I had a free day between workshops for the Nikonians Academy and decided to head down to Galveston, TX for some photos. The weather is awesome and the town is a great place to take photos. Here are some pics.
