This is the before-and-after comparison of “Basilica St. Martin – Weingarten, Germany (HDR Vertorama)“. The final image was created from 5×3 RAW files (series of 5 autobracketed shots, +2, 0, -2ev) which you can see in the left three columns. These 15 source shots were merged into 5 32-bit HDRs and tone-mapped with Photomatix Pro 4.0 (detail enhancer option). The resulting 16-bit TIF images where then stitched using Photoshop CS4. The result of the stitching, perspective correction, and cropping can be seen in the middle column. In the right column, you see the final image after a number of post-processing steps executed in Photoshop CS4.
