|Looking through a derelict business, Bank St, Pyrmont|
This was the 'best' exposure from a 5-frame bracket
|Aurora's default HDR setting. |
Quite nice from a standing start. Maybe a little too light?
|Another Aurora preset - this time it is a nicer tint, better tonal density, warmer, and pretty much what I wanted from an HDR shot.|
|Another preset - this time with slightly more of an 'HDR-look', but cooler shadows than the previous example|
|Full-on, surreal preset with all the hallmarks of a solid HDR image: |
over the top colour, gritty textures in the shade and the sky areas.
|Surreal pt. 2|
I loved this preset. Clearly wacky colour but a tint that gives a totally different read on the same scene.
You either like it or hate it!
|Aurora hs a couple of neat diffusion and softening sliders. |
In fact most of the tonal change sliders can be softened if needed. Here it is used more as a highlight glow
|Final example is an even heavier, grainier HDR effect while still producing something that's almost real - the clouds still need a bit of work but I thought it a credible result for a preset...|
|For a bit of fun I also include a couple of examples processed using one of the many apps that Jixi Pix produces.|
This is a favourite: Moku Hanga for a Japanese woodblock effect and, below, a paint effect...
