Single RAW enhanced with HDR tone mapping

Using HDR software to enhance a single RAW image. Abandoned train in the Wadi Rum desert, Jordan.

Modern cameras have so big dynamic range that in many cases a single photo is just enough for further processing. Ideally if it's RAW, which allows more control over exposure and white balance. RAW also contains more information than a single in-camera processed JPEG. In this example a single JPEG was not enough, as there was too much detail loss in the highlights (oversaturated red channel in the sand, etc.). The RAW provided enough information for HDR tone mapping, so the use of bracketed shots (which were also taken) was not needed.

EasyHDR is HDR photo editing software that produces High Dynamic Range (HDR) images out of normal, JPEG/JPEG2000, TIFF or RAW photos taken with a typical digital camera. The program merges a sequence of photos taken at different exposure settings and applies tone mapping in order to create the result. It is also possible to enhance single photos.

Finally you can get rid of underexposed, overexposed and noisy areas in your photographs. You can also discover new possibilities - by taking pictures in places where are very difficult lighting conditions.
