Temple “HDR” Experiment

Temple "HDR" Experiment

I did an experiment merging two exposures of a temple called Wat Kunnatriruttharam in Din Daeng, Bangkok.

At top right is the result of a “Merge to HDR” in Photoshop. It looks unnatural.

At top left is a combined image where I overlaid the two exposures in Photoshop and then revealed the sky and other features from the darker image using a mask.

I think the manual method is more effective in this case.

What do you think?

It isn’t correct to call either approaches “HDR”: they are both 8-bit images. However I don’t have a better name.
