HDR – filter. Do you use it?
Employing it with some photos in my library did not work. Subjects looked over bleached, or suddenly developed a halo, however it did successfully bring out the features that were normally darkened. The image I have chosen, came alive with the HDR effect in Picasa, even if it wasn’t an entirely natural effect. I felt like the snow was suddenly within my reach.
Photo 1: Without HDR filter
It certainly brings out the features that I wanted in the photograph. I am quite happy with this although, I did have to find try a few before I reached this point.
In another photo that I almost used, the mountains were better defined, with the HDR filter, but it wasn’t the best photo choice.
