The Lounge (HDR)

The Lounge (HDR)

/
This is a 3-exposure HDR image of the lounge of a big cruise ship. A cruise is the best way of getting to see many places in a short time. At night, as you're sleeping, you're being taken to the next stop on your journey. You're usually getting up really early (sometimes around 5 am) to meet your group and debark for your shore leave. This was taken around that time. At this particular day, we visited Istanbul.
HDR Before and After - The Lounge

HDR Before and After: The Lounge

/
This is the before-and-after comparison of "The Lounge (HDR)". At the top, you see the three original source images straight out of the camera. This image is based on a 3-shot auto exposure bracketing series with shutter speeds between 1/200s and 1/13s. At the lower left, you see the result of merging those shots into a 32-bit HDR and subsequent tone-mapping using the Details Enhancer option of Photomatix Pro 4.2. And finally, at the lower right, you see the final image after a number of post-processing steps executed in Photoshop CS5.
