This is one of the few times I have tried an HDR process with Hugin and Luminance HDR. Please tell me what you do not like about it, curious if it matches what I don’t like about it. I did go in an chew on it with Gimp for a bit, I wanted the sky and ground a bit darker at different levels. I’m clearly faster at it using Gimp.
I liked the colors but I’ll do better next time.
I’ve clearly cooked the color on this a bit. However, this is more like what you would get after (mythical) rain. The color of the sediments in the Calico hills are quite impressive, and I don’t think I over-did it. Hugin HDR stitch, 3x1ev bracketing; Gimp: grey overlay, color enhance layer.
Here is an HDR panorama experiment. I stitched with Hugin and eported as a HDR tiff which LuminanceHDR let me play with. I settled on the Fattal operator on this one. Impressive how much the pre-gamma adjustment can let you do.
This should span three monitors.
Kids really liked visiting here.
You can see Cyote Lake in the distance.
This is a historical location that used to be visited by silent-movie stars. In the distance you can see Cyote Lake.

This was clearly a case of pre-visualization. Guilty as charged. K10D, 50mm, circular-polarizer, 100iso, 1/200. Gimp: 1 color layer and two contrast layers, not counting borders.
