The One Four Challenge is a weekly challenge where you edit the same image differently each week for one month.
Last week I processed the shot from Zdrowie Park with HDr Efex. This week I have processed the three exposures with Photomatix.
As with HDR Efex I merged the pictures together, but with Photomatix I chose Exposure Fusion over tone mapping. This is more due to personal taste, I find tone mapping in Photomatix a little over kill creating for me a more fake feeling picture. While in Photomatix I tried as best as I could top reveal the details in the trees that people liked in last weeks picture as well as add some colour and not have too much contrast.
In Lightroom I increased the saturation in the greens ,oranges and yellows. I desaturated the blues to bring the attention away from the sky and used a gradient adjustment to reveal some more shadow detail there. I sharpened and clond out the bins, which some people recognised as people last week.
