HDR Grenoble

Just felt like playing around with this Grenoble shot – exaggerate the colors. In my opinion the result is horrible, but I know that some people like HDR and that they prefer the colors all fucked up like on some LSD trip. Personally I like it more subtle.

  1. I like it. 🙂 It almost looks like a painting. Although, I’d probably like the real-color version, too, because I like the composition, the perspective, the architecture, and the dusky feel. Nice.

  2. I’m a big fan of blue, so I don’t mind the alteration, it’s very beautiful. Although I’d like to see the more subtle version.

  3. I’m not a fan of HDR but you’ve used it with much more restraint and taste than usually goes into these images. Also the composition is pretty good.

    • A lot of the HDR that you can find online is too extreme on colors. I guess it’s all a matter of taste, but to me subtle is better. Thanks for the composition feedback 🙂

  4. i like it in general, i think it is a pity the highlighted building (yellow) is too far away; i would like to see similar with the closest building highlighted. i would change the horizon a bit – up on the right down on the left

  5. I know that more that a amateur about photographic techniques and all that stuff – to me it looks like a painting a beautiful painting – perhaps you should cut an ear off and sell it as a painting – behind the joke I really likes it… ‘big smile’

  6. I have a friend from home who goes really heavy on that technique – but he sells a lot of pictures apparently so I guess it works for him. I do like how the colours pop out on this one, but like someone else already said – the composition lends a lot to the piece too.

  8. I don’t like all HDR images. Some are overdone but I do like some. I do like this rendition too, especially the detail and tonal quality of the sky.

    • Thanks Allan. I’m still working on my HDR skills, I’ve tried and failed on a lot of photos in the learning process (I did my first HDR about exactly one year ago). HDR doesn’t always fit the scene, but it can bring interesting results to some photos.
