  2. Lovely site! Nice work

  3. Thanks for a cool tut. I particularly liked your shadowmapped and optimal layers. I’d not seen those before. Will be trying them out.

  4. Thanks, Bernie. I’m glad you enjoyed the tutorial!

  5. This is just great.
    I was so much questionning myself about postprocessing HDR images.
    Thank you for sharing those videos.

  6. Rob, I just finished watching your five-part HDR Processing Techniques tutorial. I’ve never seen the technique where you process the .hdr file three times. I wonder if you could share the Photomatix Pro settings for your “vivid” and “Black/White” presets? thank you.

  7. Sir, thanks for the tutorial video and it is works..
