First Processed HDR Image Using Rokinon 14mm 2.8 Wide Angle Lens

May 31, 2012 | Landscapes & Scenery

Got my Rokinon 14mm F2.8 yesterday and this would be the first processed HDR image from that lens. So far I am impressed but I need to keep using it before I can do a full review of the lens. This HDR image was processed using Photomatix Pro, I used 4 exposures for this image. Then I took it into Photoshop to apply some enhancements using Topaz Plugins.

I wanted something with a lot of detail so I went to a near by park and shot this banyan tree with the grass in the foreground. Notice how sharp the grass is, and the sharpness extends all the way to the edge of the lens. Of course there is some blur at the corner but that’s expected for a 14mm lens.
