    This is created using a "bracketing" technique like in photography, a few different exposures combined with an external program.

    Tried a couple,,might do more..:)

    I agree not to everyone's tastes, but some interesting work there.

    My opinion with EV Bracketed HDR pictures is that people often dial the affects up too high and push for an incredibly unrealistic tone - which is fine, it is artistic choice afterall - but my personal tastes like a more subtle HDR outcome which emulates life as the eye sees it rather than highly saturated and uber-contrasted images.

    Again, voicing my opinion rather than critcising the work - the work here is lovely, although not to my exact taste.

    What this does show, though, is that with a bit of HDR bracketing the cars can look that little bit more realistic. From looking through the 'realistic photo thread' some people think any old snap qualifies...
