This is the before-and-after comparison of "Closer to Heaven (HDR)". On the left, you see the eight original source images straight out of the camera. This image is based on a 8-shot manual exposure series with shutter speeds between 30s and 1/4s. In the middle, 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, on the right side you see the final image after a number of post-processing steps executed in Photoshop CS5.
