I took a short break with the intention to improve my skills at HDR.
It was late afternoon but still with plenty of light outside.
To make it a bit more challenging I shut closed all windows except for one.
This is the result of tone mapping with details enhancement on Photomatix Pro 4.2.6 (64-bit) of three images at ISO 400, f/9.5; 1.5s, 1s, 0.5s

The details enhancer greatly enhanced the smoke in the ceiling from candles that are always on at home. I'll have to think how to clean the image a bit and reduce noise; your thoughts are more than welcome.


I went into the kitchen to order a cup of coffee and by the time I came back it was really dark. The lights had to be turned on.

This is the result of another set of three images, shutter speeds of 1/1.5s, 1/3s, 1/8s

QUESTION:
How do I correct the white balance?
Photomatix doesn't seem able to read the white balance embedded on the NEF file, or to react to a custom set temperature.

All other comments are more than welcome.

Have a great time :-)
