HDRI made from three different exposed photos. The postwork was made to enhance the lightning behind the tree, so the halo effect is achieved by intention :)

I've pushed a little more contrasts here to give more importance to the rays and the "surreal" mood of the photo. Hope you enjoy ;)

Comparison with the non-reworked HDRI shot is here [link]


UPDATE!!: I've softened the source photos to lower the grain on the grass (caused by the oversharpening of the camera settings I forgot to change :rage:) and I've lowered the overall contrasts to make the photo look more "realistic" ;)


[Mid-exposed shot settings:]
Camera: Fujifilm Finepix S5600
Shutter speed: 1/160 s
Aperture: F/8
Focal length: 16 mm
ISO speed: 64


[Post-work: ] HDRI + contrast
[Software used: ] Photomatix, Paint Shop Pro Photo XI

Exceptional photograph. It's amazing how hard we work to capture that one second that we get in a photo and our eyes see things so much more richly. Amazing to me haha

Excellent work on this, very warm and inviting
