Tone Mapping

I bought the Tone Mapping plugin for Photoshop from Photomatix, which lets me do some amazing enhancements to my raw images. It takes a 16-bit per channel RGB image and lets you enhance the contrast, color saturation, and luminance range. The effect can be intense with a single raw image, but with a merged HDR image the results are simply stunning.

Here’s what I was able to do with a picture I took a few days ago using only a single raw image.
