Default HDR of a Good Idea.

This is a 5 shot HDR of a light bulb. I soldered wires to the bulb so it wasnt screwed into anything. Then it was simple to delete the wires.

Looking at the compact florescent bulb shot compared to this HDR of a standard bulb is like comparing apples to a dried prune.You can see the amount of detail obtained by going the hdr route. A standard shot cannot simply capture the detail. The end result of a standard shot will be just blown out image considering the focal distance and the light intensity striking the cameras sensor. Dang did I just type up that nerdy response LOL.

I think this is an excellent shot well executed & processed.
Hey Mr Bynx why not add a frame to this shot? & Perhaps some words underneath it
a quote from Ben Franklin or Thomas Edison or Nikola Tesla would be nice.

Spreading some K power to you!

Thanks Provo.
For you sparkie is the middle shot. A very underexposed shot is needed for the filament while at the same time an overexposed shot is needed to bring out detail on the base. Also the background was a product of the HDR process and not added in later.

I think you could have achieved the same results without the HDR. The middle image looks real good also.

Thanks

Its nice sparkie, but its not the same. Where is the colorful background and also your filament is overexposed. Ive brought out far more details in the glass of the bulb while at the same time underexposing for the filament so it is finer and shows its shape better instead of being a blinding blob. There is writing on the top of the bulb which is sharper in my effort. Do you still have any files left from when you shot a bulb before? How about posting anything here. Im interested because its a simple bulb with 1 light source. Im sure there are others who would question whether its worth doing as HDR. I say it is.
