Got a new soft- Bracketeer and it astonished me! Fusion of 9 exposures - 6" to 1/8000

Very interesting, but for me, it's a little over the top. try doing all that with a 6,8,12 panel panorama. If you get 3EV exposed properly, they produce correctly. While your software has potential in certain extremes, it's why to much. Imagine if you shot each in RAW...terabits anyone.

Beinbalance,
Why dismiss a Porche for $20? I showed an extreme example where the brightest part is very small. That's a weak spot of some HDR softs. Landscape photography will almost never have such brightness range. I shoot interiors and for me this situation is more frequent.

Thanks for sharing. This is another option for those whom may be considering HDR for the first time. It's nice to have a variety of tools to pick from, depending on what one's environment or application is.

Your point well taken, BUT, with my experience and understanding, when I help "first timer" I start them off by understand that it's better to FULLY master there basic tools
( what ever application or environment it is) and then expand gradually with that foundation well in place. The reason being, that there's to many choices, options. What ends up happening with the finished product/image that feels like a lot of after thoughts, ill defined, lacking visual depth and most important a cohesive plan of visualization (pre and post). Another way it's like playing chess. You have so many options in which to choice and unless you have a strategy over your opponent that better defined...I think you get the point. it's all good, just a difference of looking at life. There is no right or wrong way, just what ever works.

The thing is that I've been trying almost all HDR softs there're, at least for a Mac. And I feel that Bracketeer is 95% perfect. I hate the overdone HDRs. I'm afraid that overabundance of them give HDR a bad name. The sad thing about best HDRs is that they look so normal it's hard to understand what it takes to create them.

My humble opinion, if it looks like an HDR you over did it.

couldn't agree more. the best HDR images are the ones where no one knows they're HDR...
