HDR stands for High Dynamic Range, a technique of combining images at different exposures to create an image with far more detail in the over-exposed and under-exposed areas.The technique is usually used with three or more different images (one over exposed, under exposed, and regular exposure), but it can be achieved through processing a single RAW image from a camera too.

For those of you whose eyes are glazing over or think I’m speaking another language, this is what I’m talking about.

Taking this:

…and ending up with this:

Pretty neat, eh? It shows you how much data is in a RAW image, that normally you don’t see. I find that half the fun is taking the photo, and half the fun is processing it. I’ll be playing around with this technique more in the near future, so let me know what you think of the results!

    Hi Don

    I think this is kind of cool. I’d like to see more of it in the future.
    Your pictures are being admired by all those around us. My brother Al, that does art was really admiring all your Wild Life. He loves them also.
    Say hi to everyone for us.

    All our love
