This morning I shot a rainbow.  I always shoot RAW+JPEG, though mostly I only use the JPEG.  I was curious to see what RAW post-processing would add to the image.  This was done with LuminanceHDR 2.0.0 using the Fattal tonemapping operator.

  1. Hi,
    do you really like that overprocessed look (with that much noise) or do you just accept it as an artifact of fattal on the way to a better value distribution and more local contrast?

  2. @mike: yes to both. I like that look (and I would not call it overprocessed). I accept the noise as being integral part of this specific process, and in my subjective opinion it looks good.

    If there was an alternative process with similar value distribution / local contrast and less noise I would look at its aesthetic (and thus subjective) merits to decide for myself whether to adopt it or not;.
