Hey everyone! I hope everyone is doing great! My wife and I just got done with a blitz of family visiting us for the past few weeks. As we settle down I was finally able to get the photos from our hikes onto my computer. We took my in-laws up to the Indian Peaks Wilderness Area just West of Boulder about 45 minutes. They choose to do a simple hike around Long Lake that provided gorgeous views of the continental divide. Flowing into Long Lake was this nice creek. I was able to find a small pathway that took me to an opening so I could set up my tripod for a series of brackets.
This shot consists of two sets of brackets with three shots in each set. I combined the two shots in Photoshop using the default panorama plugin and some further masking. I applied a detail and contrast filter using photo tools. Then some final touch ups were applied in Lightroom.
Question for You:
When doing HDR Panorama’s … do you process each set of brackets first then combine them to make a panorama? Or do you combine each exposure to make several panorama’s then process them in a program such as Photomatix? I like to hear your opinion. Thanks!
