I took this at a local auto repair shop.  7 exposures two stops apart.

Very well done! Are you sure it is not a "chop shop" :-))

Very nice. HDR really fits that scene well, was a great choice on your part and very well executed. :D

David, I really like this, it has a subject that really works with HDR as the lads say. Well processed mate it doesn't look over cooked which looks quite natural, dare I say this might work well in BW as well?

As best I can make out HDR is a technique to overcome the limitations of camera`s ability to handle as wide a range of light and shade as the human eye and it seems very capable of doing so but in the process it also seems that the end product can appear overly sharp...?  I do appreciate that artistic intent may require over emphasis of some aspects of a subject which is not a personal favourite.

 

I do like your pic skilfully done and have spent a fair amount of time in such places... it brings back memories, thanks.

Nice on David

 

I know some folks dont care for over cooked HDR but I tend to like them on mechanical items like this, cars in a field, old trains etc.

 

This one is very nicely done.

 

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, gang!  HDR is, in fact, the perfect vehicle for those light situations that have a lot of dynamic range and not the best lighting.  What I do is take a shot in AV with ISO100 and the f-stop at the desired setting.  Take the shot and see what the camera has chosen for the shutter speed.  In this case, it was 1/4 (tripod mandatory).  From there, I put the camera in Manual, leave the ISO and f settings the same and drop down to a 1 second exposure, then .6, then .4, then 1/4, then 1/6, then 1/10 and last, 1/15.  I go into LR and open up the 1/4 exposure.  The only thing I do is a Lens Correction.  After that, I hilite all 7 and Sync them.  Then send the exposures to Photomatix Pro.  For mechanical stuff as many of you have mentioned, I use Tone Mapping. 

 

However, and I use this technique for Real Estate, I use Fusion Natural to keep away from that Tone Map look.  It is excellent for Real Estate, especially for those shots that have bright light coming through windows.  Because it averages the images, the windows are never blown out and in most cases, will show detail outside the windows.  So HDR, used properly, is a good thing!!

 

David


And yes, Chimpy, I did a B&W.  I took the finished HDR shot and sent it to Silver Efex Pro 2.

I missed Thursday's show...what's next week's theme?  Are they actually going to broadcast on American Thanksgiving?  I say "American Thanksgiving" for two reasons; we have an international membership here AND my wife is from Winnipeg, Manitoba.  Canadian Thanksgiving is in early October. ;-)

I agree, done properly, HDR can be extremely useful.

 

I personally prefer your image in color.

Cripes its as better in B&W as it is in colour !

( you know what I mean...) :rolleyes:

 

No show for Thanks Giving David, but the next theme is "cars" and it looks like you have the makin's of a car there. ;)

 

Having listened to various stories about indoor car / motorbike / snow mobile maintenance, your photo could easily have been taken in any of the guy's kitchens. :)

Or in one case, bedroom...

 

Thanks

Rod

David, REALLY good stuff, I'm not a big HDR fan but this photo works, also leaning towards the B&W as my pick of the two.

Thanks again!  The B&W does really put forth that funky, grungy repair shop look.  Unfortunately, I'll be on holiday for the next show, so I won't have the opportunity to post it.  Nuts!  :-)

And that's what they'll be!  Barbara and I are going to Winnipeg to visit family.  It's a late granddaughter birthday and an early Christmas....the air fares are about half of what they would be at Christmas!  So there's going to be a lot of memory shooting.  I'm hoping for at least one day that I can maybe go to the provincial seat for some architecture shooting.  But it's already quite cold there.  Might not be so hospitable for this wild eyed southern boy (from Ohio :-)  ).

Yeah, I have trouble discerning the subject in the black and white one. Maybe if you did some vignetting or just otherwise dropped the exposure on the background... But as it stands the color one solves those problems for me anyway.
