Experimenting with HDR

Well, I've finally downloaded a copy of NIK software HDR Efex Pro2. It seems that everyones messing about with this at the moment, so I thought I'd give it a try. To be honest I'm not much of a fan of HDR images but I've seen some interesting shots of various landmarks around the world, the Taj Mahal, Tower Bridge in London etc, or in my case Thorne Colliery pit top! This scene has been carefully enhanced by various arson attacks and years of neglect, to be honest it was the glorious sunset that caught my eye. Now I've just come off nights and in five minutes managed to merge eight images and get the software to work, thats testament to the softwares simplicity. Its really good, it creates you a load of images and puts them in templates with effects ranging from bloody awful to ghastly! I picked one that was in the middle, a sort of uugh? effect. I'm sorry Kev, it doesn't float my boat this HDR palava, its best described as the punk rock of photography!

Bizzare, but interesting, not really my cup of tea, and with that thought, I'm off to bed!
