During a recent wedding, I took a number of shots with my Nikon D90 at different exposures, hoping to merge them into HDR pictures. However, it was done in a hurry, i.e. with no auto-bracketing or tripod, etc. The images are of people standing, with bright sky as background.
When I use Hugin's align_image_stack command to align the images, and enfuse to do an exposure merge, the resulting image has a noticeable border around where the background (sky) merged with my subject like this:
Is this a problem with the alignment? It is possible that both my subject and my hands moved a little bit between the shots.
In any case, is there a way to salvage these photos so that I can still merge them into a correctly exposed shot?
I have access to Hugin, GIMP, and pfstools right now.
