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?

***Disclaimer: All of the adjustments made to my image will not necessarily be the same as yours, it depends on the dynamic range in the image.  You may have to play a little more or a little less.  Do not use my numbers as a chisel to stone, use them as a guide to tweak yours.***
