Scott Frederick HDR Urbex Photography

Nikon D5000, Nikkor 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5, 10mm, f/11, ISO 400

What a difference 16 months can make.  I originally posted this image back in April 2011, click here!  Last night while cleaning up and organizing my library files, I stumbled back on these brackets.  I decided to re-process it quickly to see how natural I could make it look. I utilized Lightroom 4.1 to tone-map the 32bit Floating Point Tiff file save from Photomatix Pro 4.  Which I’ve been doing on most of my latest HDR’s.

Anyway I wanted to share a quick comparison as you can see how some of my older HDR’s look really bad!;)

Ramon Nuez - They are both very nice photos but I have to say the second photo has much more appeal.

Chris Maskell - Great shot Scott. I too have been going through a similar process with my HDR work, by process I mean re evaluating old brackets and reprocessing them to give a more natural feel.
I love the way this one has come out

Captain Photo - This must be catching because I also found myself doing the same this week. Nice job on the re-do and it’s a lot better for sure. LR 4 really has helped my HDR work.

I’d like to compare notes with you regarding using. The floating point 32 bit file. Whenever I try that I have to make huge adjustments in some of the sliders, actually maxing them out. Do you also experience this?

Scott Frederick - Thank you Ramon! I agree, some of my older works are a bit over the top! :)

Ramon Nuez - You and me both. It’s rather interesting to see how we grow — creatively. When I first started with HDR I thought that everything needed to look painterly :-)

Scott Frederick - We all evolve as artist which a great thing Ramon! Here’s to continued growth!

Matthew Barker - I think this is the better photo. More darker spaces. I love it!
