High Dynamic Range shots seem to be all the rage, so like everyone else I decided to get Photomatix to see what it could do for some of my shots. This one was taken handheld on Monday, and I didn't have a tripod with me so didn't take multiple exposures using different shutter speeds - I just created 3 different exposures from the 1 RAW file in Photoshop, then put them through Photomatix. Can't say I'm altogether taken with the application's front end - I'd prefer to be able to zoom into the photo at the tone mapping stage so I can see if any horrible errors are being created. Perhaps you can and I'm not looking hard enough? Anyway, this works quite well but I suspect will work better using multiple real exposures as opposed to faked ones.
