16 examples of well used HDR-Photography

I love shooting HDRs myself and I am guilty of overdoing it sometimes. But if done right HDR Photography is extremely powerful and makes for beautiful images. Here are some examples which take advantage of the effect without overdoing it.

What is HDR? Let wikipedia tell you:

In image processing, computer graphics, and photography, high dynamic range imaging (HDRI or just HDR) is a set of techniques that allow a greater dynamic range of luminances between the lightest and darkest areas of an image than standard digital imaging techniques or photographic methods. This wider dynamic range allows HDR images to more accurately represent the wide range of intensity levels found in real scenes, ranging from direct sunlight to faint starlight.

Try it yourself

You want to create your own HDR Images? You can use Photoshop CS5 or the much cheaper Photomatix Pro to create the effect. Both work fine but I personally like the feature in Photoshop better. Here are some books to read about the technique. And remember it’s all about not overdoing it!
