Farmer Dale’s round barn off State Route 23 near St. John, Washington was a favourite location on our 2015 NxNW trip to the Palouse region. This image was created from 7 fisheye exposures of the ceiling with the final result merged using AuroraHDR.
I’ve been universally positive about the software so far but here’s my first gripe (though I’m happy if someone wants to tell me I’m wrong and point me in the right direction). The tool is promoted as the only software you need to produce great HDRs incorporating all the necessary post-processing tools that you would normally need to touch up a picture after tone-mapping. It does include many of these tools but I have yet to find any good way of controlling the black-and-white downmix. I absolutely never create monochrome images by just reducing the saturation to zero yet I can’t see any other way to achieve this using Aurora. With this image, I used Lightroom to downmix the colour image that Aurora created.
For the technically inclined...
