FINAL RESTING PLACE.

I just started working with HDR this week and have fallen in LOVE with it! I found this old work truck resting on a hillside at an old farmstead. Show me your favorite HDR of either your's or someone else's.

I love HDR. Your picture is awesome!!!

I use HDR an awful lot, but this week I haven't really done anything great.
This is my best, it's farily average, I guess.

I often play with HDR just for fun. Then go back to being purist, But that doesn't last too long :-)

Use it occasionally - livens up those dreary overcast day shots:

I play with HDR lots and love it but haven't really achieved anything to compare with some of the experts on here. This was my favourite from this week.

@chelseap92 HDR (High Dynamic Range) attempts to match a scene to what the human eye can process. That is, the human eye can process many more levels of lightness than does a digital camera. HDR attempts to simulate what the human eye / brain can process. A 3-exposure shot means that the camera is set to take three different shots of the same scene at different exposures: one nominal, one underexposed and the third overexposed. This is done to pull out the detail in shadows and highlights. The HDR software then combines all three images into one image which is then fused, tonemapped, or compressed into what you see above. The selection of which operation to used is based upon the user's intent: artistic rendering of a scene or accurate rendering or something else.

A single shot image can be used as well as long as there is sufficient dynamic range in the image. This can be done by shooting in RAW format, where there is more levels of lightness captured by the CCD in the camera.

Hope this helps.

This is the only shot I have this week that I did any kind of HDR work on. This is tonemapped.
