Purest Feeling IR HDR by UrbanRural-Photo Purest Feeling IR HDR by UrbanRural-Photo
Well I finally done it, my first Infrared HDR. I just need to do a few more test to work on the sharpness but I have the process now. The process was just as gilad said, its the same process as any other HDR. This is a 5 shot HDR combined in Photomatix Pro and layer adjusted in Photoshop CS2 with a twist of color switching (something I don't normally do). If you would like to compare the non-HDR to this one here is the link [link]

Amazing! It looks like someone taped a huge amount of paper snow flakes to those trees! It's really pretty :-)

LOL thank you. This was a very rich and colorful day. I have to remember to take the IR lens off and get color shots.

Nice work. I saw the two versions, this one and the non hdr, beautiful result. You can see a nice depth sensation in this one.

I have PS CS2 and I played with the IR technique again today. Doesn't look very good compared to what I have seen (and my eyes have become trained to recognize good IR - yours in particular.) I read today about a place that will change up your camera to make it shoot IR w/o the filter - they remove the lens protector inside the camera body. Have you ever heard of this? I guess you would have to have a dedicated IR camera then, eh?

I have and you would have a dedicated IR camera. I am planning on doing that with the camera I have now, if I ever get the D200

I have the same plan for my D80, when I am fortunate enough to get the new D300, for now I think I will try an IR filter as you have. This is an awesome shot, I've never seen such a vivid color IR shot like this. And the HDR effect sets it off.

I am with you on that. As soon as I can get the cash for the D300 I am going to start saving for the conversion of the D70s to IR. Check out my latest IR HDR but it is not as vivid as this one by my local buddy [link]

This must be the first ever IR & HDR shot i've ever seen. In my humble opinion, the two techniques don't mix too well. Atleast they don't in this shot.

Allow me to explain. ;)

This shot to me, looks more like a standard IR, with to much shoppin' on top - (increase of contrast and Unsharp mask).

IR in its self, gives images that classic, soft and dreamy look which i think is what appeals to most of us. Combined with HDR it looks too hard, and almost "too fake".

I'm not saying quit exploring combining the two, i'm just saying that i preferred the original IR-shot over this one.

Still, i applaude your curiosity and good work, and even more - the fact that you share so willingly! Keep it up! :D

All good points and I think I did the increase of contrast and unsharpen mask to feed my need for sharpness. This is a brilliant comment as I have been getting a lot of good feed back on my IRs. They all help be think about what i should not be doing in the process. Thank you. The best is yet to come.

The HDR definitely gives it it's pop, but I think I really like the infrared one better.
Not to take away from the work, both are fantastic!

I understand where you are coming from but why do you like the IR better than the IR HDR? Just trying to see if I change something in the process or something.

The ir gives you that cool, yet warm feel as with the hdr, to me, it's too contrasty and defined. Does that make sense?
Reply
:iconurbanrural-photo:
UrbanRural-Photo Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2007  Hobbyist Photographer
I got you and it does make sense. I think the color switching that i did on one and not on the other adds to that.
