A Walk to Remember{Dubai Festival City}-Dubai HDR Photographer

14mm, f/6.3, Nikon D3s

by Vineet Suthan

Its been very long time since i did any mid day HDR shoot and few of them which i was shot recently shot was to test my Nikon D3s. I find this body heavier than my D800 when i place my 14-24mm lens and shooting hand held is little bit difficult which i have never faced with any Nikon Bodies! I find there is noise created in the tone-mapped images is much more that i have to use the Noise removal filter before start of the post processing in Photoshop. I have faced such issue with my D800 and i could safely do my noise removal at the end of the processing. The clouds were grey and they can out you off when doing HDR so i had to use Nik filters to bring the colors back. Just let me know your feedback on HDR shooting during Mid day and how you feel about them
