120. The silver lining... Still?
Thanks every one for the valuable inputs regarding yesterday's post.
I put my head together and tried to get a picture with the sky same as yesterday's 1st but slight more detail in the hills with a clear silhouette of the coconut trees.
What i discovered was the Exposure Fusion option of Photomatix. My understanding of the technicalities behind the procedure is still weak, but how it differs from HDR is that instead of making a 32 bit HDR and then tonemapping it into something viewable.., it can directly create a 16 bit file most probably seamlessly adding the pixels together.
I dunnoif it is so in photoshop or not.
I took 2 pictures, one dark and one with slight detail of the hills visible and made the picture as above, with fine tuning the contrast, sharpening etc in photoshop.
It may not be a better or worse pic than yeaterday's, but it has the best from both worlds.
PS: I would love to know if someone has the experience of exposure fusion method with photomatix or photoshop or any other.
