HDView.at and The Panorama Blog

My good friend Bernhard Vogl - Panographer par excellence - keeps pushing the envelope.
Anything below Gigapixel resolution he finds just boring these days. Check out his (and his friends) new pieces on HDRView.at, an entire gallery dedicated to Microsoft's latest Super-Resolution-Panoviewer. HDView is currently in beta stage, but it sure is one of the smoothest viewers out there.

On his Panorama Blog Bernhard talks about the latest HDView feature: Auto Tone Adjustment.
Clearly, this is the foundation for on-the-fly tonemapping as it should be, especially since Microsoft's .wdp format is technically a stream-able HDR format. It's just the current implementation that is restricted to LDR images... but it's getting there, eventually.
