Leaves and a Note on HDR (High Dynamic Range) (Two Photographs)

The HDR program I use (Aurora HDR) announced an update, so of course I had to try it out. The beauty of the most recent HDR software is in the ability to get a broader range of light into a single photo by tone mapping and still have a realistic photo. Secondly the results are more easily turned into B&W. On a bright day you see leaves like this and you take a couple of shots until you have one that looks nice. At home on the screen it does not look as nice as it did when you shot it. There is a dull flat look, that is the result in part of a narrower range of light in the final file and a lack of contrast. This why the new more realistic HDR options are often a solution. An increasing number of editing programs have an HDR element to them, avoiding the need for a plug-in, and these are worth trying.
