The Wormhole – Before-and-After Comparison (click to enlarge)

This is the before and after comparison of “The Wormhole (Exposure Fusion)“. While this is technically not an HDR but an exposure fusion, it was still created through a similar process from three individual source shots. 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 +1, -1 and -3 ev. On the left side on the bottom row, you see the result of merging those shots into a single shot with the exposure fusion option of Photomatix Pro 4.0. 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.
