Another HDR Image – Mount Rainier

  |   General   |   No comment

I went to the home I’m going to be listing next week at dusk last night and snapped some photos of Mount Rainier. It really does have a killer view of the valley, the fairgrounds, Cascade foothills and of course, Mount Rainier. I decided to shoot an HDR sequence as well. I won’t bore you with the over exposed image and the under exposed image. But here for comparison is the 0.0 EV image and the three combined images into HDR (-2.0 EV, 0.0 EV and +2.0 EV).

Original 0.0 EV image. Notice how none of the details below the mountain show up? The trees, other homes, etc? Normally I would tweak an image like this in PhotoShop to reveal some additional detail, but it would never come out like the next image.


Here is the Merged HDR image. Quite a difference eh? All the details of the valley come out, even the clouds look cooler. Especially the Lenticular cloud off to the right of the Mountain. I was hoping it would move back into position over the mountain, but we can’t have everything. I think I may pony up and buy Photomatix Pro so I can get rid of the stupid watermarks. 🙂

    Makss me wish I still lived there. Aren’t the cloud formations amazing? I see why you were hoping for the red sunset-it would have made the clouds even more spectacular. I will try this method on my digitasl and see what happens.
