Before and After
Below you can find the image that comes directly out of the camera without any post processing at all. It is not a bad picture, but using image post processing as I describe it, this certainly can evolve your photographs.

I have always been disappointed about the pictures that came directly out of the camera. I had different kind of ideas when it came to photography all the time. So I kept searching and searching until HDR was made available to me!
And here is the result after processing it in Photomatix:

I like that warm feeling of the photograph and also look at the details of the woods – Now that is something typical for an HDR photograph.
As you can see, I did a Little bit of croping as well; For this Job I have used Adbobe Photoshop.
I also like the way the lights are passing between the wooden walls, the warm, yellow color with the opposite color blue in the HDR photograph. The Barn by the way is located in Germany in Oberamergau, the mountain area of Germany in the Schwarzwald.
