50+ Beautiful Examples of HDR Photography

For those who love browsing through online photo galleries, HDR (High Dynamic Range) photographs are often some of the most intriguing. HDR photography involves taking several shots of the same subject at different exposures and then combining them in a program like Photoshop. (HDR effects can also be achieved using just one image with more post processing work.) For more information on HDR photography and how to achieve the look with your own photography, you may be interested in visiting Stuck in Customs.
