Great feather 2007-05-03 12:16

This is a real beauty. I love the drama of the sky and the sunbeams emerging from that small gap in the clouds, but can well imagine to get it like this the rest of the image would be too dark. Is it 2 RAW conversions of the same image of two different ones at different exposures? I think for the correct balance for the image you have lightened the ground perfectly. Is it also a manual HDR like your others?
Excellent work

Default To feather: HDR

Hi Kath,

Thank you for your critique. I am glad you liked it.

I merged two different JPG 'real' shots; one was used for the sky only and another one for the rest. I rarely use RAW. Except for some exceptions, I have never got convinced of the benefits of it, considering the hassle of having huge images on the CF card, on the hard disk and the hassle of processing them. I tried a couple of softwares and all of them are either limited or complicated to use, so most of the times I end up getting the same results much more quicker with JPG. The exception I found to this rule were in extreme light situations, but to these, until I have further knowledge, I prefer exposure bracketing with or without HDR in PP.

Maybe I was a bit influenced by <a href='' target=_blank>this article of Ken Rockwell</a>, but I already had that opinion before I found and read the article.

Regards, Josť.
