I wanted to show a demonstration of HDR photography. It was a bright, sunny noontide, and so many details to soak up, but I knew my pupils were dilating and constricting as I observed different places.

The 1st pic is a single exposure of the scene--the clouds are washed out, and the detail on the plants is crushed into shadow.

The 2nd pic is a combo of 5 exposures using Photoshop's Merge to HDR. It's a little aggressive about colors, so the 3rd pic is the HDR overlaid w/1st as Luminosity


I'm learning a ridic amount as I do this. I've since taught myself how to use the Levels tool in photoshop, which means that I already have what I think is a superior image.
