HDR doesn’t have to be gritty, edgy, with radioactive colors. At its heart, HDR is a technique that can allow you to more accurately capture the images you see – as long as you aren’t too heavy-handed with the controls.
In the image below, we have a dynamic range (from the darkest shadows to the brightest highlights) that exceeds the camera’s ability to capture everything.
In this after image, we’ve combined some under and over exposed images to bring the highlights and shadows into range, and restored some of the colors that were in the actual scene.
