Snappy H’appy Photo Challenge Week 2 – HDR and Saturation

I’m still learning how to shoot with my new camera, FujiFilm X-E1. Yesterday (21-Feb-2014), I tried to capture a bird holding on the roof of our neighbour’s house. I was at the balcony on the 4th floor of our home in order to photograph the sky and clouds. However, I couldn’t capture what I wanted to do, then my eyes had caught this little bird and I therefore changed my mind to snap photo of the bird instead.

Too bad, the photo quality wasn’t that good because the light wasn’t enough. Moreover, there was a part that was in a shade which showed in the photo as dark area. I believe that HDR might be able to improve the photo quality. So I transferred the photo to my iPhone and used an application called ‘SnapSeed’ for the HDR filter and adjustment.

In my opinion, the output was quite acceptable even though the colour in the shade seemed to be unnatural. However, we could see the bird and overall picture clearly after the adjustment.
