Full Moon Jupiter Lighthouse HDR Version

Jan 20, 2011 | Moon and Lunar

My HDR photos are created by using Photomatix Pro HDR software. I use Luminar NEO for photo editing. I also use Topaz Software for noise removal and sharpening. Affiliate links provided to support site.

Here’s the HDR version of the full moon rising at the Jupiter Lighthouse. The HDR version came out a lot better than I expected. There is a slight halo around the trees and a purplish cast around the moon but I’ll take care of that later. Compared to the single shot, it don’t look all that bad. The colors are a tad over the top but that was just me playing around with the image. I think a combination of the HDR and the regular shot would make this image perfect. The printed version of this HDR looks fantastic, the detail is amazing! It actually looks a lot better than the regular photo.
