    Default HDR...whch type of program do you use?

    Recently I switched from using Photomatrix Pro to using Dynamic Photo HDR to process HDR shots. I gotta say I was a Photomatrix Junkie until I found Dynamic. Since finding Dynamic, I've switched teams...so to speak...lol!
    I personally find Dynamic more user friendly and it has more options for adjustment levels. I also like the image it produces.
    I still have both, but I am using Dynamic way more than Photomatrix.
    Anybody else have a fave and why?

    Here's an example of 1 shot, exactly the same images used (3 exposures autobracketed)both processed in lightroom using the Punch preset and sharpen portrait setting...
    The first is processed with Dynamic Photo Hdr
    The second with Photomatrix Pro
    The results are in: interesting huh?

    The top one is way more pleasing to me.
    I'll have to do a search on Dynamic ...
    Good pictures by the way.

    Thanks Z....I quite like how Dynamic processes photos better but some like the more HDR look from Photomatrix. I think there are times for both...I like how photomatrix can give a car image that WOW factor.

    OK I tried a quick test shot, I shot this just to see what HDR could do with it, the lens flair is too much and you can see ghosting of the trees. Surprised my tripod didn't blow over it was gusting so much at the time.

    I still like the way it came out Greg.
    Did you try it with any other programs?

    This is Photomatrix, it handles the sun better and if I played with it I think I could make it more realistic. Definitly handles it differently.

    I do like the interface of Dynamic HDR much better. Considering I posted that shot 15 minutes after downloading the program it does show how user friendly the program is. May still be of interest to me in the future.
