Bracketed version of "[Play Raw] Processing another very high dynamic range raw"

(Peter) #1

In previous thread there was a suggestion taking bracketed photos what should make developing much easier. So I checked my backup drive where I found such with ± 1EV. This was one of my first things I tried after installing DT - make an HDR but I didn’t like the result so I dumped it. Now it returns but I realize that approach “only DT” with a magic button “HDR” has no chances. If I can ask for a proper developing process, I would appreciate it. I installed GIMP 2.8 (there’s a new 2.9 dev. ver.), but have no idea how to work with it so it will take some time before I’ll be able to follow work flow.
Information about photos: This is inside Dominus Flevit Church, Jeruzalem, Israel. A short film about it:
Shots taken November 2017, no tripod, so to stabilize I placed camera on the backseat of bench.

Sorry this topic may have been accidentally closed (stopping folks from responding). I’ve opened it back up so people can reply and give you advice! :smiley:


[Edit: I moved this post back to this thread. I also corrected the name of this thread.]

@Gobo You are very welcome. From first inspection it looks like there is more clipping in the highlights in P1440496 than P1440493. I guess it is possible to extract some of the detail from *93…

PS I would recommend GIMP 2.9.x. See Should I install GIMP stable or bleeding edge?.

I don’t see the point of the recent post movements… now my comment which was about these specific images is in a thread where it makes no sense, and this playraw still makes no sense.

Yes I fumbled the post moving, sorry. There were so many posts with almost the same title. I’ll be more careful in the future.
