    Here are the 3 original photos taken with different exposure settings



    then they are combined to produce



    and then photo-edited to produce surreal photo

    Dont have CS2, so cant try out the HDR functions.

    this is done strictly with layers only...

    The surreal part is simply an "Equalized" photo of the combine pic.

    I like the nice abstract quality of your work. This is the most interesting pic of that building and patch of lawn that I have seen in a while

    I've always thought HDR is solely used in 3D apps for lighting purposes?
