I’ve been playing around with tonemapping software – Photomatix – which can both be used to create HDR photos from bracketed JPEGs, and an HDR photo from a single RAW file. These are some photos I took of the same sunset (varying zoom levels), and I tonemapped some and just did a regular RAW-to-PNG conversion for another. I’m still trying to figure out what these techniques do for photos. Can you tell which is which?
Answer: the first three are tonemapped with Photomatix; the last one is not.
