This is the before-and-after comparison of “Take me to Istanbul (HDR Panorama)“. The final image was created from 10×3 TIFF files (10 series of 3 autobracketed RAW images that were converted to TIFFs using Abobe Camera RAW). You can see the 30 source images at the top. These images were merged into 10 32-bit HDRs and tone-mapped with Photomatix Pro 4.0 (details enhancer option) using the same settings for each image. The resulting 10 16-bit TIFF images where then stitched using Photoshop CS4. The result of the stitching, perspective correction, cropping, and retouching can be seen in he middle. At the bottom, you see the final image after a number of post-processing steps executed in Photoshop CS4.
