Residual dense U‐Net for abnormal exposure restoration from single images

Yue Que, Hyo Jong Lee
2020 IET Image Processing  
Digital imaging devices sometimes capture images with abnormal exposure because of the complex lighting conditions and limited dynamic range of luminance.  ...  In this work, a new residual dense U-Net is proposed to predict the information that has been lost in saturated image areas, to enable abnormal exposure restoration from a single image.  ...  However, traditional single image enhancement methods primarily focus on low-light image enhancement.  ...
