First Attempt at Subtle HDR

This is my first attempt at HDR using Lightroom 3 and the Enfuse plugin.  This is the result of 13 images with 1/3 stop difference in exposure between each image.

I’m quite pleased with the result as a first attempt, and I think that it looks reasonably natural and reflects what I actually saw in the field.

Compare this to the middle exposure of the batch.

This is the unedited mid-range exposure.  In an ideal world it probably needs about 1/2 to 2/3 of a stop more exposure, but I have used this as an example, and as you can see there is much more detail in the tree trunk and shadows.
