    Oops. One more who does not get all the abbreviations that float around the place.
    I think HDR stands for High Definition ... erm :scratch: :oops: oops - something...

    It basically means that you expose for three or more different spots in the frame you want to take, note the measurement data for all, put the camera firmly onto a tripod, and then expose according to your notes for all the different areas. Later you combine your photos (which must be totally identical other than the changed settings) somehow (don't ask me how, I wish I knew!) in PS and get a very highly defined, perfectly exposed in all areas (light, middle, dark) photo.

    Experts. Help me out of here!
    Did I get the idea?
    Did I explain it right?

    HDR = High Dynamic Range, just plug it into your web browser, there quite a bit of info on it out there, i don't really know how to do it either. I think Photoshop CS2 does it for you, and the more images the better... a tripod is a must. where is KenCo? he had some great HDRs...

    these are awesome too mommy! please share your technique!

    HDR = High Dynamic Range. I use Photomatix to create the images. I used 3 bracketed photos for this one, each at 2 EV stops difference...first one was -2 underexposed, second at 0 (perfect exposure) and +2 overexposed. I combined the three in Photomatix and generated an HDR (it looks like crap at this point). I then worked on the Tone Mapping, this is where it starts to look nice. It all comes together in the tone mapping.
