HDR with paint.net

I did my first paint.net HDR pic. Not bad for a first attempt. Alot cheaper than Photoshop also

Did you have to take multiple pictures to get the final shot?

True HDR images are multiple images taken with different exposures and then combined to increase the dynamic range of the final shot. If paint.net allows you to do this, then it would be quite awesome.

Ahh, it's an HDR effect. This makes sense as a true HDR is expanding the dynamic range using layering, which looks like paint.net can do.

So try this. You'll need a tripod or something steady to hold the camera. Take a picture with the exposure compensation (ev) set to -1, then 0, then +1. You'll have three images that are different levels of brightness. Then, take these images into paint.net and selectively bring parts of an image to the surface. For example, in the image above, you might pull the sky from one picture and the ground from another. Experiment. In the end, the resulting image should seem a lot more lively in color.
