20 Beautiful HDR Pictures Will Blow Your Mind

Written by abduzeedo

There are some photography techniques that really give me the goose bumps, but the good ones. HDR is one of those techniques… and you’ll probably love these as much as I do.

“In computer graphics and photography, high dynamic range imaging (HDRI) is a set of techniques that allows a greater dynamic range of exposures (the range of values between light and dark areas) than normal digital imaging techniques. The intention of HDRI is to accurately represent the wide range of intensity levels found in real scenes ranging from direct sunlight to shadows.” – From Wikipedia.

What I’ve read on some foruns is that a program called Photomatix does the job… Does anybody have already used it? I’m looking forward to it. Well… either way, if I don’t get to use it, I’ll probably find out how to simulate that effect on Photoshop. All this pictures are from a Flickr HDR Group.

    Well, these are interesting works of digital art. Very pretty but.. there’s something that unaltered photos still has over them

    We do a lot of HDR photography here in our studio for the purpose of creating realistic lighting for 3D objects. Itโ€™s nice to see it used artistically, and I do see this a lot on Flickr. The only problem for me is that, despite the beauty of some of the photos, that some photographers tweak the dynamic range of the different lighting areas so that it begins to look completely phony. I do like some of the photos, and itโ€™s nice to see the details captured in them, but it would be nice to see people โ€œworkโ€ the photos a bit less! Yes, the human eye is capable of seeing all this detail; however, it does not see all this detail at once!
