    Not a very big range for a HDR, cant even see much of the shadows...especially in the tree trunks...

    I have to agree with prodigy; the dynamic range I'm seeing really doesn't look like like you're getting the maximum benefit out of an HDR. How many images/what range went into this?

    i did the method of adjusting the different exposures in lightroom then combining. So what type of picture is best for an HDR? Also, can someone explain more clearly what went wrong in this picture and what would make it a lot better? Thank you very much!

    I also think the colors are very strange, especially right around the sun and the sun itself which is almost purple.

    A true HDR would be to take 3 different exposures, in camera, and use PP to create a HDR...like photoshop
