Another of my HDR experiments, this time of a brightly lit white stucco house in North Saanich. It was a sunny day with very bright highlights on the white walls and some dark shaded areas so I was interested in how well HDR could handle these extremes. I used a full f-stop for the brackets, all use only 3 images. Some Lightroom adjustments were necessary after the tone mapping. For instance the more distant umbrella below was a dirty grey and I had to lighten it up as best I could. Adjusting levels in Photomatix during the HDR processing was not successful in getting it brighter, but that might be something I need to learn more about, these are some of the very first HDR images I processed.
These frames also use the rented tilt-shift lens which I mentioned in yesterday’s post. Some of the slightly odd angles it can produce are visible in these images. Also, in the door picture, the strange focus plane is very evident.

I am away from my computer for a day or two, so responses to comments may be a bit slow in coming.
