Klasse Bild. Gefällt mir vorallem von den Farben her super, der Bildaufbau mit den Bäumen in der Mitte hat auch was.
Sehr schön!

I use Photomatix for my HDR Images, but it doesnt allow me to use a single file for tone mapping..how do you create a HDR Image out of a single RAW file?
Reply
:iconmarcoheisler:
MarcoHeisler Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2008   Photographer
You'll have to create different exposed jpg or tif files with your camera raw program (Capture NX for example) or photoshop out of the raw file first. Save one with 0, one with +1, one with -1 exposure or some more. Than you can load these in Photomatix and create a HDRI.
Greetings :D

Hm, so instead of shooting with different exposures via Bracketing on my Camera simply do so in Photoshop/Capture NX or Adobe Lightroom?

:iconmarcoheisler:
MarcoHeisler Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2008   Photographer
Yes, thats exactly what I mean :)
The only problem with that is that you'll get more noise cause the pixels are the same in each pic - so shooting with different exposures would be better. But on that day I shot the pic I had no tripod with me :(
Bracketing with a software makes HDR possible for moving objects, too! Ever thought about that? Comes really cool with rallye pics or something like that :D

Hm, i will have to give that a shot... I shoot with a low enough ISO (usually 100) to get rid of most of the noise...thx for the tip

Cool shot! Very dramatic!
Just curious, do you like you Sigma lens? I only have the one lens I bought with my camera. It's not the usuall kit lens, but a decent Nikkor. I'm looking to add a few more lenses over time and I've heard mixed reviews of Sigma. What's you opinion?
Anyway, Great work!

MarcoHeisler Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2008   Photographer
Thank you.
Well, I like my Sigma 10-20 very much! :D
When you don't want a real fisheye lens but an ultra wide angle, this is the lens for you. Much better than others like Tamron 11-17 or something like that. The Nikkor 12-24 has a little less vignetting but the image quality is nearly the same... and the Nikkor costs about 800 EUR more than the Sigma ;)
For other lenses like Standard, Zoom or Tele I would prefer Nikkors. (Depends on how much money you like to invest - my ideal combination would be Sigma 10-20 EX, Nikkor 24-70 2.8 and 70-200 2.8 VR but this would ruin my bank account, these lenses together are about 3500 EUR :omg:)

Thanks for your input, I really appreciate it! Your dream team lenses are the same as mine, but wow, the cost is brutal! They are cheaper here; I've looked at those at the best photo store in Canada, and they're about the same numbers, but in Canadian dollars, so about half the price! I don't know how you Europeans live, it's so expensive!! I really like the results of your Sigma 10-20, I'm not a fan at all of fisheye, so I'd never buy one, but I love wide angle. My lens is 18-70, so it's ok for wide, but not the same! I'd like to get a macro lens; Sigma offers one for less than Nikkor, but I'm not sure. What I really care about is optics; if the optics are as good, and they're cheaper, I'd rather go with that.
Anyway, thanks for your thoughts!

Oh yeah, the prices for the lenses here are much more than in Canada, USA or Asia, for example the 70-200 VR costs about 1900 EUR here in Germany and this is really too much for me for ONE lens ;)
If you want to buy a macro lens, have a look at the Tamron 90mm 2.8, ^hellfirediva (photography gallery director here on dA) uses it - it has a good quality for a very good price :D
