What Did You Shoot OR PP This Week? EXR D-Range Priority / DR Experiment. . .

Photos from the DarkSide of Sunset. . .

Original SOOC Jpeg (Except for Reduction for Web). . . In-Camera DR=1600

9x16 Crop + Reduce for Web + FastStone Image Viewer Contrast Tweaks + Mild Shrapen & Noise Reduction

LightZone / Color Softening - Noise Reduction PP

Shooting EAST at SunDown. . .

I had been wanting a Gradiated Color Spectrum for testing with the EXR (D-Range Priority) DR=1600 Setting. . .

The Following Shot is at DR=800 a few minutes later. . .

SOOC Jpeg ( Except Reduce for Web ). . . Dialed EXR : D-Range Priority / DR=800

PP Jpeg / LightZone ( Color Selective Blurring ) + Mild Mid-Tones Sharpening

Well There's That Experiment Gone Wild. . .

Tech Note : The Shadow Areas Exposure & Metering was Not Identical for These (2) Shots so It's Hard to Evaluate the ( Light / Dark Ratios for Comparison between 1600 & 800 ) The Only Difference that Popped Out at Me is the Courser Gain in the DR=1600 Pics - Otherwise they Appear Very Similar. . . What's YOUR Take ?
