HDR Attempt No. 2 -- Guan Yin Ting

No elaboration needed -- the title of this post is self-explanatory.

Original Exposures
The original exposures of the HDR image.

Multiple shots with my D90.

Over 2 hours of tweaking.

Three separate software programs on two operating systems.

Two HDR programs.

Two tone-mapping editors.

Three different tone-mapping algorithms.

Three layers of overlapping images with different opacity.

Individual editing of specific parts of the image.

Countless failed attempts.

Finally, I present... 回头是岸 (Hui Tou Shi An).

Hui Tou Shi An
A tone-mapped HDR of Guan Yin Ting. Note the ghosting around the leaves and the flags at the top-left corner.
