In this paper we propose a No-Reference Image Quality Assessment (NR-IQA) method on High Dynamic Range (HDR) images by combining deep Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) with saliency maps. The proposed method utilises the power of deep CNN architectures to extract quality features which can be applied cross HDR and Standard Dynamic Range (SDR) domains. To introduce human visual system to CNNs, a saliency map algorithm is used to select a subset of salient image patches to evaluate on. Our CNN-based method delivers a state-of-the-art performance in HDR NR-IQA experiment, competitive with full reference IQA methods.
