Lake Quinault Dream

Description

I fell in love with this area the moment I arrived. This is the perfect summer getaway. This beautiful beach is located on the grounds of the Lake Quinault Lodge in Olympic National Park, Washington.

I'd like to explain how I came to this result. The image you see is an merging of 5 images, all at the same f-stop and varying exposures. I took numerous shots of this scene and there truly was no way to have every area in the scene properly exposed. (At the time, I had no intention of merging the frames. )The images were taken on a bright August morning. The adirondack chairs were all very shaded by a tree, as you can probably tell by the dappled lighting on the sand. The water and beyond were quite sunwashed. As I'm now beginning to experiement with HDR, this series of images popped back into my mind and I realized that maybe I would have a shot at processing them satisfactorialy with HDR. And hence, this result. I hope you enjoy and I'd love feedback. Thank you.

I must admit, I am one of those photographers who has long been intrigued with HDR photography. Not just the end result, but the entire process, from the bracketing of images forward... I'm very new to this, and certainly still learning. I'd love feedback, of course.

High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI or HDR) is a set of methods used in imaging and photography to allow a greater dynamic range between the lightest and darkest areas of an image than current standard digital imaging methods or photographic methods. HDR images can represent more accurately the range of intensity levels found in real scenes, from direct sunlight to faint starlight, and is often captured by way of a plurality of differently exposed pictures of the same subject matter.

In simpler terms, HDR is a range of methods to provide higher dynamic range from the imaging process. Non-HDR cameras take pictures at one exposure level with a limited contrast range. This results in the loss of detail in bright or dark areas of a picture, depending on whether the camera had a low or high exposure setting. HDR compensates for this loss of detail by taking multiple pictures at different exposure levels and intelligently stitching them together to produce a picture that is representative in both dark and bright areas.

HDR is also commonly used to refer to display of images derived from HDR imaging in a way that exaggerates contrast for artistic effect. The two main sources of HDR images are computer renderings and merging of multiple low-dynamic-range (LDR) or standard-dynamic-range (SDR) photographs. Tone mapping methods, which reduce overall contrast to facilitate display of HDR images on devices with lower dynamic range, can be applied to produce images with preserved or exaggerated local contrast for artistic effect.
