A lot of HDR looks fake. It's the rage now, and a lot of serious photographers are aghast at the overcooked dynamics applied to millions of photos on Flickr or on Facebook. The photos in this collection were made using up to 9 frames each, separated by as much as a full stop between frames. This means that many of these photographs cover up to nine full stops in a single picture. But they don't have that garish HDR look. These photos by Seanie Blue are HDR that don't look like HDRs.
Oil cans, shot with only available light
There are five blended layers of the same subject in this single shot, each separated by 2/3 of a stop. So the picture encompasses more than three stops of light. The darks aren't too crunched and the whites aren't blown out. The next picture in this gallery shows the five different shots that make up this single image. (Click on the upper right hand corner "+" sign to see the larger version.)
You can see the five original shots that make up the single "blended" image that leads off this gallery. By combining these five images, you can get a very nicely toned final image.
