Challenge: HDR (Advanced Editing V*)
Camera: Nikon D50
Lens: Nikon AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 12-24mm f/4.0G IF-ED

Date Uploaded: Nov 12, 2006

Whohooo, I did it! Now I have the highest rated D50 photo. I also have 7.57. I hope it will stay on the top for a while.

I've allways hated HDR. I think it's ugly. I don't like how grey HDR pictures are. But it's great to get a nice score for a HDR photo.

I used took 6 different exposures and combined them in Photomatrix. Then I processed it in Photoshop. I tried to bright up the car and the ship and darken the ground. I also muted the color because I didn't like the HDRish colors I got.

Congratz on this picture, clearly the best picture in the challenge becouse it uses the very cheesy HDR effect in a relatively subtle way.

Excelent job.

I am just amazed by what a great photographer you are! You are only 16 years old and already so damn good! You have a gift for this. I am 41 and will never be as good as you are now. Keep it up. You will be a famous photographer someday.

Lovely image, you should be proud of it. I had it for 2nd place as I knew the Cathedral photo would rule this competition. Well done, and doubly well done for the D50 rating, thats gonna take some beating.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/20/2006 05:16:20 AM
Ooops, he did it again! Haha, now you are going to have to have this HDR monstrosity in your top profile FOREVER :) At least as far as I am concerned, as I view the top 8 on profiles, hehe, you are going to need eight 7.58+ scores to erase this! I think you can do it but will probably take till 2010 to get there.

Anyway, congrats kiddo and especially on the new top score of the Nikon D50, I knew you really wanted that one :)

Congrats Magnús for the excellent photo, for the highest rated D50 photo and of course for the yellow ribbon. Young photographer of the year, for sure!

Congrats Magnus! You finally have that top D50 spot, I knew it would only be a matter of time and this is a great shot and the HDR processing really compliments the image. Hats off to you, well done.

I also thought would win the blue, but this is still very, very, good.....

I think this is the essence of HDR. I love the mood and feeling this photo captures.

excellent another one of my picks for top 3 r10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2006 04:32:21 PM
I love the desaturation of the colors, yet you were able to keep such great tonal range.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2006 11:44:22 AM
I really like this technique.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2006 06:47:02 AM
Excellent work - love the duotone feel. shame the sky wasn't more exciting. slight glow to the left of the boat is also slightly distracting
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2006 06:06:41 AM
Fantastic shot. Great use of HDR. The wide angle really helps too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2006 04:22:33 AM
I can almost feel the metal, this looks so metalic. I think that your processing worked very well for your subject(s).
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 11:21:01 PM
Although I know very little about the effects of HDR, this image appears to be well representative of the process.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 08:34:51 PM
I love the look you acheived on the ship and truck... it has a wonderful feel to it. Unfortunately, the sky takes up too much of the image and is flat and uninteresting. 7

love your tones, detail is awesome - nice capture
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 06:43:42 PM
A good subject for your treatment. Way too much evidence of editing though with the halos though - won't put off most of the DPC voters though as they love this kind of thing. Some nice touches however, and with more time you could make this special.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 05:45:27 PM
great crop just wish that cherry picker was a nice vibrant red, gorgeous image and nice colour and usage of space. 9

The cartoon like appearance of this entry is unique and works well!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 04:06:52 PM
Voted on this last night and came back to comment now. I think I love this more for the subject matter, perspective and muted colour, than the somewhat overly applied HDR which imo, renders it digital art in this instance. Having said that though, I gave it a 10 and now even with a second look over, cannot find justification for changing my vote. So I won't - a 10 it remains :)

This photo has a feel as if it is a painting. I love the old truck and boat. Your use of HDR brings out the dark areas of the wet ground while allowing the brighter sections to stay in control.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 02:38:53 PM
I'm having this one pegged as the winner. Good work!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 02:19:37 PM
The HDR rendered a lot less realistic looking photo in this case, but I do like the results. This interesting and fairly dynamic composition combined with the processing give this very good art appeal. Nicely done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 01:22:16 PM
Gorgeous shot. An interesting sky and/or removing the lense spots above the boat would really set it off.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 12:20:36 PM

Nice processing and tones... (8)

A little too "cartoonish" looking for me to give it top scores - but, it's still nice so I won't trash it either :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 11:22:05 AM
Very pretty. I can see this hanging on a wall somewhere - perhaps a tiny bit of touchup needed here and there, but this is one of the best of the challenge so far. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 11:10:09 AM
Looks like a muggy day for HDR, so I think you did well finding a subject for the tonal qualities.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 11:02:09 AM
Good use of hdr. Love the detail on the truck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 10:40:02 AM
I like the colours and the sharpness of the image. It has a slightly animated feel to it in parts (mainly the truck).
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 10:30:03 AM
Good shot.
Looks almost like a painting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 10:18:09 AM
What a COOL composition! That truck gives it such a nostalgic feel -- and the boat gives it such a dramatic feel! I love it!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 09:47:14 AM
Well done HDR and nicely composed. I feel this is a top 10 in this challenge. Well done and an 8 from me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 08:01:54 AM
this is great.
the HDR colors have worked very well.
my only dislike is that the sky is a little "boring".
but you did only have 24 hours, so i guess you couldn't be too choosy.
well done, this should do well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 07:44:36 AM
wow. This is the winner. No doubt. I reckon 7.7. And I shall give u a ten
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 07:38:27 AM
Very nice. my fav so far. The muted color pallete is quite effective.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 07:11:00 AM
This is an appealling image and I'm predicting that the wide angle combined with the aged subject and balanced HDR effect will bring you success and a place in the front page.. God luck.
