Not sure how much sense it makes to try and do a HDR of a waterfall. I am pretty new to this HDR stuff, and I sure am having my trials and tribulations. This one is a 7 image one ...

Thanks for posting this Matt!!!
Great shot of the entire falls!
I love Fletcher Falls, Ive splashed around in that little Pool at the bottom so many times over the years! Now I'm missing my home ( the Kootenays), haven't been back in a few years.

This is the way HDR should be done so that you really don't realize it is HDR. An excellent waterfall shot and kudos on the HDR.

Nice work Matt- do you mind me asking which program you are using for the HDR processing

Thanks ... of course ... I used Photoshop for this one ... I also have PTgui, but that I use more for the panoramas.

Very nice Matt. the blown out areas "are" a little distracting, as you said, but overall a beautifully captured/PP'ed image.

I agree. And I don't mind the blown out bits- I think they add drama to the shot

Thanks Matt, the reason I ask is that I too am turning to the dark side and experimenting with HDR. I hope I can achieve results such as this.

You can Matt. Once you've got the HDR to this point open up one of the original shots and place it under the HDR. Then add a Layer Mask to the HDR layer and gently paint with a black brush to erase the blown out bits and show the original shot through where you've painted. It's very simple and effective.

Shall give that a try, MA, thanks for the tip ...
