photoblog image HDR: The Cottage

HDR: The Cottage

This is an HDR image compiled from 5 exposures due to extreeme brighness outside and shaded (although bright to the eye not the camera) interior space. This is the living room at my cottage and I've never tried photographing it properly before. Beyond the trees outside you can just maybe see the blue of the lake well beyond and below the cliff upon which the cottage sits. I have not shot much in the way of interiors to let me know what you think! :)

This is really my first real HDR attempt and it was quite successful (I think!). I probably should have gone down and up about 2.5 stops to rescue those few blow-out spots rather than the 1.7 that I did.

Iain Myrans: Thanks smile I just learned about photomatix tonight actually from my frien VisualVault. -- Literally right before I read this message! I just used photoshop but photomatix looks much better. I look forward to trying it. Thanks for the comment!

HDR in Photoshop does not cut it in my books, Photomatix sorta gets you a better result, although I am still not a fan of HDR, I have been experimenting with the techique over the last 2 weeks (see my blogs fro shots taken from 31st July to 07-Aug, almost all are HDR images)
I also posted up a link to a very good tutorial for HDR (07-Aug), hope this helps.

Lovely cottage you have there smile

Very well done. Looks like it belongs in one of those interior design mags like Cottage Living or something,
