    I've seen these fantastic surreal photographs in HDR? What does this mean and can I do it?

    High dynamic range.
    Allows you to get a proper exposure when not possible in 1 shot. But people tend to over do them and they look cartoonish which isn't what it was intended for.

    The range of exposures you make depends on the dynamic range of the scene you are wanting to image. It takes at least 3 bracketed exposures to make an HDR and could take as many as 9 exposures.

    Photoshop is usually used in conjunction with dedicated HDR software like Photomatix Pro which has a tone mapping capability. HDR processing is started in software like Photomatix Pro and then is edited in Photoshop at various stages of the HDR process before being returned to Photomatix for additional tone mapping.
