The field of high dynamic range imaging addresses the problem of capturing and displaying the large range of luminance levels found in the world, using devices with limited dynamic range. In this paper we present a novel tone mapping algorithm that is based on $K$-means clustering. Using dynamic programming we are able to, not only solve the clustering problem efficiently, but also find the global optimum. Our algorithm runs in O(N^2K) for an image with N luminance levels and K output levels. We show that our algorithm gives comparable result to state-of-the-art tone mapping algorithms, but with the additional large benefit of a total lack of parameters. We test our algorithm on a number of standard high dynamic range images, and give qualitative comparisons to a number of state-of-the-art tone mapping algorithms.
