Sawtooth HDR Photos

Postby CO Native » Fri Oct 15, 2010 11:53 am

A friend of mine likes to do some HDR photography and he just visited the Sawtooths. I really enjoyed the photos so I thought I'd share them...

Those are nice. It's cool to see HDR used in a reasonable fashion instead of this blown-out over saturated pastel paints thing you seem to see all over the internets. [/rant]
The mountains - whose summits reach or exceed arbitrary thresholds for elevation and prominence - are calling and I must go.

I could never achieve such smooth color balance with filters and polarizers with a single exposure.
HDR is like retouching the original.
Purists might not think it is kosher.
It can make an outstanding photo out of what may otherwise be unflattering.
But I like the result.

I couldn't agree with you more. The majority of HDR images are bad attempts to use a technique where it shouldn't be applied. Like spending $500,000 on special effects for a made for TV movie about the lives of worms.

These images are a good example of well done HDR, though.
I'll be damned if I feel like I will ever know anything, but if we don't keep moving on that last hill, we'll never know what's on the other side.

Those are some truly beautiful shots. I've got a permit for Coyote Buttes North - Wave formation in Paria Canyon in January and I'm hoping to be somewhat successful with my HDR attempt at that time...
