Here is the final HDR photo from Monday’s original Photomatix image. Click here to view the original HDR image.
This HDR photo was processed using my newly created Photoshop action. The same action I’ve been using for all of my current photos. Using this action has saved me a ton of time and is keeping my HDR look consistent. Before the action I would experiment with different things. Sometimes I would spend hours trying to get what I want from a photo. But with the PS action, I run it and it gives me a final look. I can instantly decide from there which way to go. Of course the action isn’t perfect, I still need to fine tune the photo a little to get the image I’m looking for.
