Comparison: HDR and RAW

The photo on the left was created using 3 different exposure and on the right touched up by photo shop with RAW photo. By comparison, it look like photo taken using RAW look better than 3 different exposure HDR photo technique. HDR suppose to look better theoretically because the mix of three different exposure create a wider range of light and shadow in the photo to touch up in photo shop. Must be something wrong with the process or the exposure setting.

  1. HDR doesn’t always work well from a single RAW file. It can, but you have to nail the exposure. I also find Lucis handles the single raw file HDRs the best.

    I also find that no matter what software I do my HDR with, they all take some meticulous layering and blending.

    Hope that helps 🙂
