Candlelight (Exposure Fusion) – Before and After (click to enlarge)

This is the before-and-after comparison of “Candlelight (Exposure Fusion)“. In the top row, you see the original source images straight out of the camera. This image is based on a 3-shot autobracketing series with 0, -2 and +2 ev. On the left side on the bottom row, you see the result of the fusion of those shots in Photomatix Pro 4.0 using the “Adjust” method. And finally, the right side of the bottom row shows the final image after a number of post-processing steps executed in Photoshop CS4.

The final image and a more detailed description of the post-processing steps can be viewed here. Click on the image below to view a bigger version.
