HDR: first try

After researching a little (ok, alot) I thought I'd give HDR a try when hanging out with my buddy Jonny the other night. I'm not gonna go into the details of HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography, but here's the basics: you put your digital camera on a tripod and take atleast 3 photos. One is at the correct exposure, one is over and one is underexposed. Using photoshop, you combine the photos in order to get the most detail possible out of your shadows, highlights, and everywhere in between. The top photo is my end product. The bottom is what my camera said was a correctly exposed image. Check out Flickr for some awesome, good, and really terrible examples of HDR photography.
