HDR

Thank you guys for the HDR pointers and tips. I was too lazy to go anywhere, so I shot some raw images from my back porch on a tripod (w/ the delay on, to reduce tripod shake), and made my first exr file.... (it's at bradfitz.com/exr/backyard.exr if you want it, not linked because it's 18MB)

Here's a tone-mapped version of that exr file:

Backyard

That was all done with Photomatix Pro on my Mac. Next up I'll play with the various tools on Linux, using the same raw files and same openexr file.

Fun stuff.
