Because it might fall under "aiding and abetting" category?  Grin

Hi Slobodan,

You want me to remove my image ?...

Why? It is a free country (forum). Free to post and free to comment. Besides, I do not condone censorship. On the contrary, and in general, I had enough of the recent rabid calls to remove this symbol or that person, etc.

How many bracketed pictures do you take to do HDR for complex interior spaces? Also, what increments do you use? Can you get away with shooting 7 pictures at 1.6 stop increments and get the same quality HDR file as you have shot 11 pictures at 1 stop increments?

Thanks

it was said that Fuji was using (in cameras like S5 Pro with "SuperCCD") 2 set of sensels, absolutely identical otherwise, but separated by 4 stops by a simple mask on top of one set /so the sensor was otherwise, underneath, a simple Sony one/ to reduce the amount of light reaching them... so  just 2 exposures separated by 4 stops shall do... and 3 will get you to absolute HDR nirvana of postprocessing... however which camera does allow 4 stops of separation in some automated mode ? so you can get by with 3 stops x 3 shots.

Great stuff, Enda. Sorry,  Wink but I like the shadows in the first version, they pull me into the scene.
Me too. All nice, but the first is special.

I know exactly how it works John and as I don't always want to sync everything whilst working on one image out of a group, autosync is best left off for me.
I think you need to appreciate different workflows for different needs John. Sometimes autosync is useful, other times it isn't as it creates more and not less clicks.

How exactly am I suggesting there aren't different needs? You complain enough about others not reading what you write....

My first word was "or". You either avoid AutoSync because of you're likely to forget it is on, or you leave Autosync on all the time, in which case you soon learn to keep your eye on which images you have selected. What I don't think works for many people is switching into and out of AutoSync - use it all the time, or completely avoid it.

Please let us know what hardware you consider essential to run Resolve. The advice on the BM website is way out of date.  Goff

Thanks allot for this link. I am now trying to buy a used A7r so that I can pair it with the adapter and try it with my 17-40/4. This might be the biggest improvement to my work flow since switching to shooting completely in raw.

Thanks again

Murph asked how to make the shots more natural looking, so why not cut the snark and be helpful instead of immature dicks.

how do you explain when the OP posts these images and says "that things are moving just a touch past natural looking, and into the realm of HDR or digital manipulation." - you can't argue about the taste here or definition what "a touch" is... I'd say that is an intentional move a lot past natural looking and you certainly consider this to be like the OP "a touch"...

as for the halos those are when the skies are near the ground = may be just simple use something like Topaz Remask to separate the skies into a different layer and apply HDR there, w/o ground present at all...
