Shot on a Nikon D750 f8 @ 1/250 ISO 250 as a raw image and processed in Aurora HDR.
Shot on a Google Pixel 6 Pro and post-processed in OnOne Photo Raw 2023 (exposure, sun flare) and Aurora HDR (Cool Landscape filter).
I also processed it like the one below. Which one do you like better?
This photo was taken with my DJI Mini 2 drone in Raw mode, converted to an Impressionist painting in Corel Painter 5, then post-processed in Nik’s Color Efex Pro to give it a wintery look and apply a frame.
The photos for each panorama were taken by a DJI Mini 2 drone shooting in raw (DNG) format. ISO was fixed at 100 and the aperture for each photo was 2.8. Shutter speeds varied from 1/2000 to 1/3200 S. The photos were then post-processed in Luminar 4.
I’m partial to the monochromatic version myself. What about you?
I’ve been following drone technology closely since consumer-grade drones hit the market, but I waited for the sweet spot of good camera quality and relatively low price.
When I saw that the DJI Mini 2 was below $700 (CAD) and that it could shoot Raw and HDR I took the plunge, and I’m so glad I did. I really feel this will transform how I shoot many of my photos.
Here’s an example photo, shot just off Hwy 6 in Wellington county, Ontario. It’s a crop of a 7-photo panorama, cleaned up a little in Lightroom, and then further processed in Aurora HDR to give it some punch.
Here are three different versions of the same picture. Which do you prefer?
