A selection of bird photos with a high dynamic range filter applied. Of course hdr filters should normally only be used in situation where a high dynamic range is present, i.e. where it is impossible to apply the correct exposure to all parts of the scene – for example where shooting a bright sky at its correct exposure would leave landscape features underexposed. I thought I would experiment on bird photos where hdr would not be an obvious or necessarily appropriate filter to use. Some of the photos work better than others. I think some add a little bit extra to the shot while a few of the pics have washed out colours – which can be a problem with hdr images. But colour was not a significant factor in these images in the first place so its no great loss and the extra definition adds something more compared to the colour loss.
