I have been scouring the internet lately looking at HDR images and while many are great, I always find a few bad ones in the bunch. You know those HDR’s with hyper colored clouds, technicolor skies, and toxic yellows? Therefore, I have decided to re-post an old tutorial, but an extremely important one! I have a theory that if this tutorial appears twice on my page it will be looked at twice as much, therefore there is a good possibility there will half as many technicolor HDR’s out there, an HDRtist can dream can’t he?
