Download (and Watch) A HDR Process!

On the heels of the previous tonemapping demos that we did for the Photomatix side of things, I was able to do a new one today as well. There were three different things to it, however:

1. Focused on using 1 RAW image instead of 9
2. Focused on using HDR Efex Pro from Nik Software (which I prefer.. and love)
3. I was able the record the process locally, and share it on Youtube! (this is different from their On Air stuff tho)

You can Check out the Sourcefile and download the file at this link.

Once you’ve played with it and are done, you can watch how I worked on the file on the video below:
