It might be detailed, but this HDR is kinda gross :-/

What's with the sky? Part is grey and weird with lines and scratches. The rest is white.

Masses of haloing purple fringes in the trees on the right.. yuck

And it's full of artifacts - like that weird line next to the bag held by the guy in the brown jacket. The pavement is weird and smudgy too, and more artifacts on the signs on the left.

Sorry, not my cup of tea either. I like realism.

It seems that the left side of the building is kind of a wall painting... This photograph doesn't reveal anything particular about the D800 unfortunately.

OK, at this size it does not really demonstrate much about the D800. But I like the shot. Very cool wall painting. Thanks for sharing.

So, applying a heavy tone mapping filter makes any shot gorgeous ? I must have missed something in my artistic carrier...

The wall is painted, so is the sky... We call this "tromp l'oeil" in France.
I'm even not sure that the OP did so much tone mapping...

Awesome

I absolutely love it!

I wish I could do something as interesting as it and print it on my new Epson 4900

Tell me

what are the steps to process this shot like the results we see here?

You have an artistic carrier... can you take a picture of the carrier for us? I had a carrier on my bike when i was a little boy, it was one of those little blue ones. Mom would have me carry the milk home from the store in it. i would love to see what an artistic one looks like. I am thinking rainbow colors... so cool.

I wouldn't use the word "artistic", to avoid flames and other pointless discussions, but I like your picture, bravo. I don't like it for the detail but for the atmosphere.

I hadn't realise photomatix had included the capability for the D800 NEFs yet; was this a TIF you tone-mapped?

technically ,not that good .
In reply to SkyDreamer, Apr 6, 2012

not wishing to insult the OP or the D800 ,that I concider to be a phenomenal camera ,I find the ghosting in the greenery on the extreme right to be distracting, to the point of it ruining the picture .

I have seen pictures of this scene before ,and i conclude that with the D800s capability (DR) this shot does not require HDR to pull it off, the sky was not apparently so bright and the rest of the scene was no where neer requiring HDR.

its a surreal and wonderful scene in its own right ,and allways look impressive .

I agree with a few of the above ,that it does nothing to showcase what the D800 is capeable of.

I would suggest taking the metered shot ,and create two files from it ,one pushed up a stop and one down , creating (with the original) 3 files, you should be able to get better results "HDR" by using the 3 or maybe just 2 of these files to create your new HDR, without the ghosting of the leaves . and elliminate any other possible motion ghosting in the picture too .
congrats on your new camera .

depends on what you are trying to get

I love the composition, but hate the effects.

If you were intentionally trying to make it look like a painting, then it's good.

Sorry but hdr used to that extent looks very unrealistic & it definitely looks like a painting !.......but thats just my view & I think that if you like it, then really, thats all that matters in the end......photography is a craft, an art & definitely in the eye of the beholder !......

Love the picture but it needs some work done on the right hand side another 10 minutes post processing the sky & the fringing on the leaves would make it look great.
