I select 3 exposures either jpeg or NEF raw, lightroom or classic and \i always get the blasted highlights and the no detail shadows. In the attached image you can see the 3 exposures and the HDR box with the black and white image. Please help. Windows 10

Tony that's not what you'd expect from this relatively simple process.

Can you detail your in-camera HDR settings so we can better understand whats involved there from your hardware?

Also, please use the "Insert Photos" icon in the post reply window if you make an attachments for your reply.

I don't have in camera HDR settings just bracketing and raw settings. I shoot 7 images 1 stop apart. I import and stack them then right click and merge HDR then the window shows the high contrast image.HDR.jpg

HI Tony,

I just tried the HDR using 3 RAW (canon images) and I did indeed get an HDR image.

Please do as Tony_See asked and let us know exactly what you are doing.
