They are cool... I have seen them before, but had no idea how they were done.

So I got curious, whacked the digital camera on the coffee table, chucked a bike in front of it and snapped away.

Before:


After:


So basically, I have no idea what I am doing. I am sure if i had a tripod and better subject with more in the background, then maybe I will get a decent end result.

Yeah Jason, I totally love the effect.
I saw it ages ago and it looks almost animated with the colors so vibrant and saturated. Love the detail of tires and chrome looks so clean
(well, maybe not so in this pic).
Here's a website that has a heap of them. People look so strange.
(Let the page load and then scroll down.. There's some really good ones..)

here is one I knocked up quickly from 1 picture (shot with a 3mp iPhone)

under exposed 1, over exposed another, and 1 normal, then blended them...

This is "fake" HDR..not as good as the pro's who take multiple actual shots with different exposure on the camera in RAW format then blend em


Here is the original




here is the (fake) HDR one. This is the 3 photos blended with with a luminosity filter




Now the "blended" under / over exposed photo "tone mapped" - can be various colours...but black comes out a lot

Looks great Chris, when I finally master Photomatix and bracketed exposure, I'll post some up of the Impala.

That's really very good Chris
..but do the pros take multiple exposure bracketed shots or do they exposure bracket the one shot in a program?
Many of those "Edge of Speed" pics have people in them who wouldn't have been standing frozen-still for 3 images or more.

They are done with exposure bracketed shots, but as Chris has done, you can do it with three separate shots if you have a still subject.

Here is my quick cheat one done from just one Photo.
I'm determined to get some good ones from Bracketed Exposure.

Jason,

That looks great.

I love the green grass, looks way better than mine, I need more sky and trees in my shot.

Steve - as Jason said bracketed exposure.

My quick and dirty above was actually from one photo. I copied the photo 3 times and over exposed it and under exposed it using PixelMator (like Photoshop but for Mac), then belnded the 3 together using a luminosity filter then using a free app called Luminence I tone mapped it

For those of you with Photoshop, there is a fantastic add-on Filter called "Lucis Art" (don't think it has anything to do with George Lucas though).

Turns this:

I love HDR photo's but some people really over-do them.

I started off using my cheap olympus 5mp camera and an application called qtpfsgui (just google it and you should find it) It has a heap of different types of HDR and seems to put out really good results.

When i travelled to the states a couple of years ago I bought a Canon Rebel XS (1000D in Aus) and it made it soo much easier. Pretty much all DSLRs will let you do multiple shots with different exposures and you only have to hit the shutter once. This makes it less likely to get ghosts etc in your shot.

A tripod is probly the most important thing whether you have a DSLR or a Point and Shoot

I haven't really taken many lately but these are the first ones I made. They are all Real HDRs with 3 different exposures blended.

Viper I hired in Vegas




Water tower on Alcatraz




Golden Gate Bridge




Yosemite Nation Park









Death Valley






Hollywood




Some polar Bears

Russ they look fantastic

Brent, that app is now called Luminance. It's the app I used, although I'm still learning which filters and settings are best to use, have a long way to go
