Before/after comparison: El Cotillo

I planned to post such comparisons more often but I failed to do so in the last few months. So here is one today. Just move your mouse pointer over the image to see a 0 EV image. Move it out to see HDR image (shown by default). As you see HDR image has much more detail both in highlights and shadows. I used Photomatix Pro for creating HDR image and tone-mapping it, and Topaz tools to boost details and colours.

EXIF data:
Camera: Canon 5D MK II
Lens: Canon 24-105 f/4 L IS USM
Focal length: 105 mm
Aperture: f/8
Exposure time: 1/500 s (“middle” exposure)
ISO: 200
Number of exposures: 3
E.V. Step: 2 E.V.
Flash used: no
Tripod used: no
Filters used: circular polarizing filter
Software: Magic Lantern, Photomatix Pro 4.2.4, Lightroom 4.1, Photoshop CS5

    Great…how do you do this trick. I see many sites that show two different images by a mouse move but can only save as a GIFF myself….Please help.

    Hi Adrian,

    there is plenty of info about showing two different images when mouse is moved. For instance here is quite good and detailed description:


    Many thanks.
