Preprocess and merge the photos The next window lets you specify options for preprocessing and merging the photos. If your photos were taken hand-held (MINE WERE), check the Align source images box and select the By matching features method. The three photos of the Grand Canal were taken using a tripod, but we still check the alignment option to correct for small alignment problems that may happen even with a tripod. If your scene includes moving objects or people, check the Reduce ghosting artifacts option. The semi-manual option is recommended for better results. If the bracketed photos you loaded are RAW files, check the Reduce noise option with the on source images selected. You may also check this option
with jpeg or TIFF files.
ABOVE is what the HDR photomatix process produced, all-be-it my first real try at it. I wanted to compare the dark shot with some touch-up with iphoto as well plus no water marks, I liked it too. Was it better?, always subjective, was all this fun?, HECK YES! HERE IS THE OTHER SHOT TOUCHED WITH IPHOTO:
Oh, What is it? A very young Apple Tree with apples and blooms on the same branch, is that normal apple people? I sure don't know but it is beautiful!
