At first to say thank you very much for people, who help understanding HDR technique. The two main sources of HDR imagery are computer renderings and merging of multiple photographs, which in turn are known as low dynamic range (LDR - also called standard dynamic range SDR) photographs.
As we see the author is experienced professional, who understands the meaning of this technique, and helps sharing the basic know-how with beginners.
The turorial is written detailed - like the RAW, TIFF, the 32 to 8 bit conversion, tone mapping, parameters, etc.
Summary my critique is absolutely positive. I hope will seeing in the future many other beautiful HDR works from this author again.
What do you think?

I have had the opportunity to be able to be a member of many forums that cover various aspects of photography. I have never seen anything as informative and well put together as this tutorial. It is constructed in such a way that the amateur can get to grips with the information offered and the pro can still glean little gems of wisdom from it too.
I am thoroughly impressed with the way this has been done and, if anyone were to ask me in future how to create a HDR panorama, I will send them this link safe in the knowledge that they will be well "looked after".
Thumbs up from me for this very well put together tutorial.

Thank you for sharing!

jó volt ezt a 3 leírást átolvasni! lehet én is megpróbálkozok evvel a módszerrel :) én lightroomozni szoktam meg ps-ezni de lehet hogy ezek a különálló programok jobbak???
és ha jól látom a 4.része nem készült el ,azt is szívesen meg néztem volna hogy az útsó simításokat hogy végzed :)

Great Job!! All your work is REALLY GOOD! I have a question though. I'm just getting into this HDR thing so maybe I'm missing something. Why do you adjust the exposure on every photo (to create the 3 different exposures for the HDR image) before stitching them together instead of stitching the original photos together then changing the exposure (to get the 3 different exposures)? I hope I asked that correctly.

So you would just do the stitching process once instead of 3 times. And instead of changing the exposure on several photos you would only need to change the exposure on the panoramic photo. Have you tried both ways? Do you get a better result the way you explain in your tutorial? It seems like more work for the same result. Please don't take that the wrong way. I'm still learning so I'm just trying to understand. Thanks for your time.

You must get the 3 expos from raw. I don't know any program that can stitch raw files. This is the reason.

VERY handy tutorial indeed. But what do you mean with "I put them together in Photoshop with the help of masking" ?
jolielove1 Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2010
Those three parst of the tutorial are GREAT! I've learned A LOT!! But I mostly work with Photoshop and I'm very curious what's the photoshop techniques you use for the final result :) i'ts just very realistic and the colousr are so clear :) i'm looking forward for trhe last part really great job : ))))

Really good tutorial. I love how detailed it is and it pretty much covers every base of HDRIs and their creation.

I do have one question. I am to start something like a workshop soon with my boss at her studio. We want to do stuff for beginners and also some more advanced things like retouch techniques or HDRI. Could I use some info from your tutorial?
TaliBunny Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2010
Do you also use some special hardware? Like a panoramic tripod head?

whats the word with photoshops HDR function? its so bad! i'm not sure if i just dont know how to use it or what, but i guess you use photomatix for a reason!

The tone mapping algorithms in Photomatix are capable of producing more dramatic looks with greater contrast control than the HDR tone mapping built into Photoshop.

Not sure if other methods are in development over at Adobe, but until then, Photomatix has the market cornered, from the looks of things.

It's perfection! Thank you ^^

I hope, if I've got someday ask that I can write to you any question about photographs? :)
