HDR Toning in Photoshop CS6 – Beach pilings, Spurn point, Easington UK.

Here are 2 examples of Using the HDR toning feature in Photoshop CS6.
First image : ‘surrealistic setting’.

Second image uses the ‘More saturated’ setting.

To use HDR toning you need to go to : ‘image’ then ‘adjustments’ then select HDR toning. You can then access a menu which uses the settings that are similar to ‘merge to HDR pro’ but without having to use multiple images to gain the HDR effect.

Here is the original image.

” Spurn Point is one of the most striking features of Britain’s coastline, stretching for three and a half miles across the Humber Estuary. “

Photography editing, Clouds – which 1 do you prefer?

clouds at dusk 2
clouds 2 (original)

Both images taken with Taken with Fuji – X-E1. The bottom picture is the original . It was then processed in photoshop cs6 using auto colour correction.
I can usually decide on 1 image if i have multiple images similar but on this occasion i cant make up my mind up which to choose.
when i cant decide i usually print both and put them on the wall and look at them over the next few days.
At the moment i still can’t decide, both have their own quality.

Please comment which image you prefer. 🙂
