Playing with HDR

I’m new to HDR photography, having only seen some fantastic examples of what is possible from sites such as http://www.stuckincustoms.com/. Of course, none of these examples get anywhere close to the brilliance and professional look of really good HDR photography.

All pictures shot with a Nikon D7000 auto-bracketed 3 exposures -1, 0, +1 and then processed together in HDRefex Pro. Minor adjustments to exposure and grain with the help of a few existing presets in the software. The original middle exposure is below the HDR version for each photograph.

    1. Thanks!! I’m just very new to HDR and the learning curve does seem a bit daunting. What I need first probably is an understanding of the pictures that make good HDR candidates I suppose 🙂

      1. your scene does help but really almost anything can be an HDR. do you have adobe photoshop? if so adobe has a setting for HDR with presets for more contrast and different effects. 🙂
