    Default HDR Cockpit

    Hi,

    I took this pic at the still on-going Singapore Airshow 2008. It was actually a HDR pic. I would like to find out if the HDR looks natural or too surreal?

    By the way, comments on other aspects are welcome.

    Thanks.




    If you want the rest of the series, here it is.

    yea it does feel a little surreal if thats the right word, without the clouds i would think its probably a concept drawing like those for cars.

    I think this shot fits the surreal effect perfectly.

    Saw the rest of your series, some of them work more or less well, but this cockpit one definitely tops all of them.

    hi! Could u share your experience with me pls?

    Did u just take 3 shots of -2, 0 and +2 exposure compensation and using photoshop automate to get this HDR effect?
    I must say, it looks really impressive!

    What else did u do with the photo in photoshop CS?

    hello how did u achieve hdr?

    I heard its a combination of under, over and neutral exposure.

    Everytime i try to photoshop an image to make it HDR, using theHDR merge, it always says 'not enough dynamic range' or 'cant create a useful image'. What does this mean?

    Steps?

    I like the effect, but not the compostion.
    How come you place the subject right in the center of the frame? Might be a stronger photo if you had included the front of the plane. Should also crop away the bottom 10%.

    nice treatment

    hdr can come out with very surreal feel for vehicles, metal, etc

    can try motorcyles as well, just make sure you avoid the nasty haloing

    the treatment here is still quite reasonable, surreal but not overly done

    but i do agree about the composition part, though i'm not exactly sure if you simply shift the frame here it would be ok. i think the angle here is slightly off, would prefer something taken from the right of where you are.

    HDR = High Dynamic Range, HDRi = HDR image. Read here for more info.

    Hi, grumpy, thanks for the suggetions. Are you saying shooting more head on? Should be a good idea too. For this shot, I was planning to see more of the cockpit and the name of the pilot. If I do more head on it means lesser cockpit and many details on the side of the cockpit will be unrecognisable.

    Yah, should have cropped away the lower 10%.

    Hi bro, thanks for giving your feedback. Motorbike is a good idea....will try one of these days.

    I was trying to get the cloud, as you see if I shift more to the right and tilt the lens back to the left, I may loose the cloud which is only on the right....

    I know your intention of capturing the cockpit and the pilot's name. Just maybe a tighter crop or zoom out to include the entire front. I feel now, it is a little not wide enough or not close enough.

    Hmm, I was not refering to head on, but, I think it might be something interesting.

    One more thing, there is a spot on the top left, is it a dust bunny?
