Old cottage house in Kluki open-air museum, Poland. Wide field HDR photo, taken against the Sun.
Three photos taken without a tripod, using auto bracketing (AEB). They were loaded into easyHDR and auto aligned to correct for a tiny misalignment. Then, they were combined into a HDR image that was finally tone mapped. Settings similar to the "vivid-colors" preset were used. No further post-processing was applied.
It is a perfect example when HDR processing is really useful. The fish eye lens gives so wide view that there easily fit areas that are illuminated extremely differently - ranging from the deep shadows, up to the very bright clouds. With HDR processing, taking a photo straight against the Sun is also not a big deal. Of course it is the photographers decistion which part of the histogram to clip and therefore achieve the wanted, more realistic, or more dramatic result.
