So, very simple. I took the exact same set of -2, 0, +2 exposure (A-lock) pictures and used the exact same settings to photoshop-auto-merge into HDR. This is (in my opinion) a decent study of HDR and aperture settings. I wanted to do way more, but it was unseasonably cold and I called it quits after only a few shots (12 to be exact, with 3 focal screw ups)
I am definitely going to find a better composition and repeat this experiment but with ISO as well. A true full factorial experimental design. Maybe if I can, I’ll paste in a poll and get feedback and figure out statistically what affects general appeal, and the weight of which each factor carries.
