Butcher HDR from Barcelona

Another HDR image using the release candidate of Nik's new HDR Efex Pro, this shot was grabbed in a butcher shop in Barcelona as one single RAW, divided into 5 levels of exposure in Apple Aperture (-2,-1,0,+1,+2) and exported out as half size JPEG's (for speed as the output is web only), opened up in Adobe Photoshop before launching the Nik tool from the "Automate" menu.

Again, the objective is to create a subtle HDR look to an image where the dynamic range is flat and limited, original image included below for comparison:

  1. nice work, the light on the butchers face came out well with hdr. manytimes i have seen hdr with people in it and it just looks bad but this is very convincing!
