I very much appreciate what HDR Darkroom can do, especially
for photos taken in less than optimal light.
Using the program colors are
brought out so nicely. Unless I shoot 1 RAW image I will need to bracket
+1 or +2. In the past I have done 3-shot bracketing but rarely have included
a + image.
+1 or +2 shots will open the
shadow areas while -1 or -2 shots will help not having the highlights blown
I am having much better results using 3 jpeg images rather than 1 RAW shot.
RAW shots, when
brought into the program, show a great deal of noise that
the program does not handle (It's on their 'to-do' list).
A page with 3 shots of different exposure
settings - and the final photo. (Use Aperture priority,
not shutter priority.)
