This is my first attempt at creating HDR, or High Dynamic Range, images. HDR images use a special program to combine multiple exposures of the same scene taken at different settings. Normally a single exposure might have great highlights but dark muddy shadows, or great shadows but blown-out highlights. The HDR process combines a range of images in an attempt to render all parts of the scene properly exposed. Used conservatively, the HDR process is said to render images closer to what the eye naturally perceives. Or you can set everything to "10" for a more surreal look.
