View in HDR

View from my living room window. I used a technique called HDR for this photo. Short for High Dynamic Range, this technique 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 represent more accurately the wide range of intensity levels found in real scenes ranging from direct sunlight to faint starlight. Sounds complicated, but this software does it all for you. You just need to take multiple shots of the scene in different exposures. A sturdy tripod is needed for good results.
