Great Falls of the Potomac by LAlight Great Falls of the Potomac by LAlight
I in no way could do this place justice. It is just one of the most majestic, breathtaking places I've ever seen.

This was shot using in-camera HDR, just before sunset.

Great Falls National Park, Virginia

In camera HDR? I didn't know that existed yet, I really need to upgrade my old school camera...What lens did you use for this one?

LAlight Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2010  Professional Photographer
In camera HDR is pretty cool, as it tends to make things look much more natural than the standard bracketing method, at least for me. I'm not really good at the processing for the bracketed shots yet. One drawback to in camera HDR is that it will only shoot in JPEG using that function. So there is a trade-off, thus, I don't use it very often. I haven't acquired any new lenses since we last spoke about them, so this was just shot with my 18-70mm kit lens. I desperately want new lenses! I just ordered a 50mm portrait lens, and it should be here next week.

I always wondered how the in-camera HDR would turn out... I kind of like the result.

I'm still trying to figure out where to best use it. I think for the most part, it keeps the scene very natural looking. It does tend to err on the side of yellow, though, which I have to adjust in post processing. I'll keep experimenting with it, nonetheless. :)
