The contrast in real world scenes is often beyond what consumer cameras can capture. For these situations, High Dynamic Range (HDR) images can be generated by taking multiple exposures of the same scene. When fusing information from different images, however, the slightest change in the scene can generate artifacts which dramatically limit the potential of this solution. We present a technique capable of dealing with a large amount of movement in the scene: we find, in all the available exposures, patches consistent with a reference image previously selected from the stack. We generate the HDR image by averaging the radiance estimates of all such regions and we compensate for camera calibration errors by removing potential seams. We show that our method works even in cases when many moving objects cover large regions of the scene.
