This is the before-and-after comparison of “High Five (HDR)“. In the top row, you see the six original source images straight out of the camera. This image is based on a 6-shot semi-autobracketing series with -3, -2, -1, 0, +1 and +2 ev. On the left side on the bottom row, you see the result of merging those shots into a 32-bit HDR and subsequent tone-mapping using the detail enhancer option of Photomatix Pro 4.1. And finally, the right side of the bottom row shows the final image after a number of post-processing steps executed in Photoshop CS5.
