    I had a little fun with this shot of my truck. Fake HDR with one photo.

    I just dropped it in a program called photomatrix and just messed with some settings to see what they do and how they affect the photo. Hdr takes some time to get it right and does not always work well with any photo..

    It's a combination of strength, microcontrast, black and white levels. It's like riding a five-wheeled bike with three sets of handlebars. Fun though once you learn to keep your balance.

    That first image is not HDR. Yeah it's tone mapped and yeah it looks pretty cool, but I wish people would stop calling that stuff HDR. HDR stands for High Dynamic Range, which means dark areas and bright areas are simultaneously exposed properly.

    I quickly messed around with your jpg to show you what I mean:

    It doesn't look so great because I just hand painted it and ideally, the white sky at the horizon should have detail too, but the original jpg gave very little to work with. :D

    Anyway, THAT is HDR.

    Question: so do you mean that the shadows are lightened and the highlights are darkened? I wont bother you too much about that here...i am going to go on and search some threads. i just wondered if that was the basic concept
