Processing a Landscape

While going through the pictures, Iย saw this one and remembered the reason I took this. The varied colors. So I thought I will try to use this single picture and apply the HDR processing using Luminance HDR software I had installed some time ago. Since I am still unaware of lot of parameters associated with it, I gave a go with the various options and got this one close to my liking.

And then I played around a little more and I got this one ๐Ÿ™‚

Processed Landscape

And then with a new equation, it gave me this one

1-processed_4

Now I am like a kid in a candy store ๐Ÿ™‚

But my favorite is still the first one, even though the 2nd one looks good for a spooky set with all those branches coming out very well. The third one is just too nice and soft for my liking.

And then again after sometime I tried it with Photomatix Pro for Tone Mapping and this is what I got. And now I sort of like this too. That is why I don’t like too many choices ๐Ÿ™‚

Do you have a favorite among the three ? ย what do you think of the fourth one ?

PS: For Earth Day yesterday, I shared a few photographs of mine in Google+ (a first for me). Just testing the waters.

      1. When I edit pictures, I often get surprised what happens and I usually use that one. LOL. I have idea in mind and then while editing, I’ll try something and get a different result than I originally thought.

    1. Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚
      That 4th one was a bonus and it came out well too. It looks a little brighter than the rest isn’t.
      Thank you for letting me know.

  1. I like # 2 best but it was not easy to choose. #1 is my second choice (it almost looks like a pencil sketch).
