Optical systems in digital cameras present a limit during the acquisition of standard and High Dynamic Range Images (HDRI) due to the presence of veiling glare, an artifact caused by an unwanted spread of the source of light. In this paper, we analyze the state-of-the-art of veiling glare removal in HDRI, giving attention to the paper presented by Talvala. Then we describe an algorithm for veiling glare removal based on the same occlusion mask, to study the benefits provided by it in HDRI acquisition process. Finally, we demonstrate the efficiency of the occlusion mask method in veiling glare removal without any post production estimation and subtraction. View Full-Text
