Hello Hugh,

Thanks. I am a bit unhappy about the halo around the pine tree, but I just couldn't process it out and the original image(s) just didn't mask well into it. I do find it strange that it haloed there but not around the dark bare branches on the right.

I assume you are using PhotoMatix? Px doesn't do well with some gradients. What is halos around the pine is unnaturally light areas behind the bare branches. It is sometimes possible to adjust sliders until the over-all image is light enough that halos don't show, and then add contrasts as necessary in PS.

Yes, I use Photomatix Pro ver 3.1 beta 5 (I am one of the many beta testers). I understand the problems with dark subjects against light backgrounds and the halos. What I don't understand about this image is why the pine tree on the left halo'ed but the dark bare branches on the right didn't?

The light area above the branch is the same phenomena as the halo to the right of the pines. It's not always a halo around an object as much as misinterpretation of gradients causing lightness on one side and not the other.

Hello Edge,

Thanks, this is five shots at 1.5 EV spacing. I am one of those people that believe a single shot cannot be considered an HDR and this forum is for "Strictly HDR". So all my images presented here are multiple exposure tone mapped images. That being said I think tone mapping a single image (whether from importing one raw or artificially creating three or more exposures from one exposure) can produce really nice results and do not have anything against them.
