My First HDR Pano with HDR Efex Pro from Nik

Nik'sHDR Efex Pro - 12 shot HDR stitched panorama
Canon 7D with EF 70-200mm f/4L handheld
Lightroom, HDR Efex Pro, and Photoshop CS5

The attached images are the first HDR stitched panorama I did with Nik's HDR Efex Pro.  The software is still in test but shows potential to be a (if not the) MAJOR player in HDR processing.  

The color version

I will continue to post images from HDR Efex Pro and will show them side by side with Photomatix Pro and Photoshop's HDR Pro. (I guess once someone in the industry adds "Pro" everyone has to do it.)

I am heading back to California tomorrow and will try to get a few tutorials up online. 

Nik will have a big presence at the California Photo Fest (Cali Photo Fest) with many of our top instructors demonstrating HDR Efex Pro, Viveza 2, Define, Color Effects 3, and more.

Fiat Lux!

Arctic Sunsets

7-shot stitched panorama

Up here in Alaska again finishing up a hectic couple months of travel.  Able to break away yesterday and shoot for a little while.

Sunset swim.  

Home this week in time for Print Perfection and a Canvas workshop too.

Fiery sky behind two drilling rigs, one rotary the other coil.

California Photo Fest is only a few weeks away.  If you have not checked it out follow the link below.  Awesome instruction, beautiful location, and, bottom line, a good time.
