This is the Canales Reservoir between Granada and Sierra Nevada. Good landscape photo locations seem hard to find in Andalusia but they are worth it when you make the effort.
Not often the escalators are this empty.
It seems to me that there is a serious problem with the deghost function in the new Lightroom CC. The first image here is using deghost=High and the second using deghost=none. As you can see the presence of the bright sun and its reflection has caused large circular deghost masks to cause real problems with the image.
Both these images have had identical processing with the exception of the deghost setting. No adjustments have been made before or after the photomerge.
BTW. I'm not claiming that these are good images. I was just looking for something with a high dynamic range to test out the photomerge.
I have to say that I agree with Trey on the uselessness of the new HDR Photomerge in Lightroom CC. I gave it the benefit of the doubt and have tried it on several sets of bracketed exposures. It seem to me that it doesn't actually do anything useful. In general you might as well just use the +0 exposure. It may be that if the scene has a very high dynamic range that it does more than this so I will reserve final judgement until I have tested that.
I know that many people don't like the more intense HDR effect but that is not what we are talking about here. The basic question is ... does it do anything useful. Check out Trey's review.
I suppose there's more to this than meets the (fish) eye :)
This is my first try at the new Lightroom CC 2015 Merge to HDR dialogue. It's incredibly easy to use (can all be done with a Ctrl-H) and of course it is all inside Lightroom so no need for NIK or Photoshop etc. It doesn't offer much control but does the basics quite well.

I am an amateur photography living in Surrey, near London. In general I am a landscape photographer, but also enjoy travel photography, urban and architecture.
I recently acquired a Phantom 2 Quadcopter and have mounted my GoPro Hero 3 Black. I am learning both to fly the drone, and to shoot photos and video with the GoPro.
I'm not promoting anything, just trying to be helpful by sharing my experience. I do, however, appreciate feedback, so please say hello, add comments and share my posts.
