More and more with my HDR photographs, I am creating a 32 bit file with Photoshop Blending, and then tone mapping the 32 bit file in Adobe Camera Raw. I find that I have more control; plus, in ACR, I am working on a Smart Object and can go back and make any wanted changes. This photograph is very much like what I saw, and absolutely like what I felt.

NIKON D700 F/7.1 ISO 400 135 mm (35mm equiv.)

HDR as it should be (my own opinion): for a "natural" look.

The result is a beautful image. I admire your technical experimentation to develop an improved processing sequence.

Beautifully-processed shot with excellent details, colors and textures! I love how the tree stands out in the middle.

I too have been using this method. I find that I have much less of a halo problem than in other HDR software. Nice work.

An interesting method, I tried using 23bit but just confused myself. Will try again because I really like this effect.

I am very much in favor of HDR that has a completely natural look. This is an excellent execution of a natural HDR.

It's the perfect HDR because it doesn't look like one.

Your process yields impressive results. I don't know how to do any of that!
