HDR from NSI 2012

Still working on figuring out how HDR works.  High Dynamic Range or HDR is a set of methods used in imaging and photography, to allow a greater dynamic range between the lightest and darkest areas of an image than current standard digital imaging methods or photographic methods. HDR images can represent more accurately the range of intensity levels found in real scenes, from direct sunlight to faint starlight, and is often captured by way of a plurality of differently exposed pictures of the same subject matter.

This was taken while out shooting during my class at NSI this past August along BeaverDam Road in St. Catherines, Ontario.  It was an early morning shoot also got some great sunrise images as well.

Below are the 4 images I used to create the above HDR image.  

As you can see there are several different levels of exposure in this image.  I am currently using Merge to HDR in Photoshop and then tweaking the image a bit until I get what I like and want.
