Flower Stories: Daffodils and Pansies

I started out with this photo — at first it seemed that the camera just couldn’t handle the contrast in the automatic setting and I lost definition in the daffodil trumpets.

Then I applied the HDR-ish setting and pulled out all the details in the petals and leaves, but I lost the intensity of the colors.

Now I’m not so sure that I don’t like the original photo better. What do you think?

  1. Basically I don’t know a darn thing about photography, so in my humble opinion, I like the more intense colors in the first, but the sharpness of the second.

  2. Both are good–they just give a different view of the same subject. One is more detail oriented and the other has more color. It just depends upon which effect you want.
