ESA – Day2am

This movie requires Flash Player 9

Our Eastern Sierra Adv are about a whole bunch of things other then just taking pictures of pretty places. I take nearly every group to our favorite fishing hole, Convict Lake. Why do we go here? It’s an incredible light/exposure photographic challenge around. Just look at the two images.

The difference between the two images here is just five minutes in time and two frames. A few weeks back, Photomatic Pro released an update, 4.01. I’ve found it does the math just a little sweeter but I had not yet had the opportunity to run any testing. As you’ll see with the posting of the rest of the ESA postings, I used it alot. The top image is a 7 image HDR and the bottom is a 5 image HDR and to me, there is all the difference in the world. The top, 7 image HDR looks pretty much like what I saw (but no way what the camera to capture in 1 frame). The bottom looks like a bad HDR. Since I’m using HDR just for the heavy lifting of combining all the light, the top image really caught my attention. mtc!
