Double-Processed Desert

June 7, 2010

There is a huge amount of detail in this image and I really wanted to extract it all. It was just a single shot, taken near sunset in the desert in New Mexico. Since it was taken handheld from a somewhat precarious perch atop a solitary spire of rock I didn’t really bother to do multiple exposures with which to make and HDR image. Instead, I processed the same file twice. One time for optimized highlights and one time for optimized shadows. The resulting files were then merged back into one single file that has a great amount of detail throughout. The technique is referred to as double processing and with the right image file as a starting point you can obtain a really nice final image.
