    I have seen some HDR pics and am finding it difficult to work out how best to take these types of photos. As you have guessed I am very new to all this and have only just learnt what they are!
    Sorry to be a pain, but you all seem to full of knowledge.

    Thanks:hail:

    HDR means ‘High Dynamic Range’. Using software like Photomatix you can create images with a more detail in the highlights and shadows than you can with a normal photo from todays digital cameras. Its similar to the old technique of exposure blending. Taking one photo for the sky and one for the ground, then merging them both together in Photoshop. HDR takes it a step further by increase the amount of detail in the image and allows you to create some unique photos. You can use it carefully to create natural looking photos or you can use it creatively to create atmospheric and emotive photos. The choice is yours as to how you process the end result

    Google HDR Tutorial and get a plethora of links to further explain this technique
