    Great Wow Factor!

    question: I don’t understand why you align the photos in photoshop, and then bring them into Photomatix. What does Photomatix do that Topaz & Photoshop don’t do?

      Hi Bobbi!

      Thanks! In my opinion, Photomatix does a better job at merging and tone-mapping the images. You could also do that in Photoshop, but I just don’t like the results too much (go to https://farbspiel-photo.com/hdr-cookbook/creating-32-bit-hdrs to see the reason).

      In fact, I use Photomatix also for the alignment. For the pics-to-play-with features, however, I just needed to align the images and then save them individually. That’s why I used Photoshop here.

    I love Santorini, been several times but never been inside the churches, which Cathedral was it? I am going to try and do these in HDR Darkroom and I have made a mental note to visit the cathedral myself next summer when we visit again-never thought of that. Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us:)
