HDR Panoramic Coastline

HDR (high dynamic range) images seem to have earned themselves a bit of a bad reputation. This is possibly because when it’s obvious that an image is HDR, it’s usually because the effect has been overdone.

The over-sharp, glowing edges that HDR (and especially fake HDR) can produce are pretty off-putting, but I found out just how useful it can be when photographing the weather as we travelled into Northern BC. This image was a composite of 12 shots: four images merged into a panoramic, each of which is an HDR image made up of three different exposures.
