Hello all,

Am a newbie. Dont know what techniques are available to combine various pics from different exposure settings into a singular more expressive photo.

Here is my first attempt :

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 :thumbsup:

I've always thought HDR is solely used in 3D apps for lighting purposes?
Now becomes a new 'stylize' filter ar?..LOL. :bsmilie:

this method does give an impression of increased DR, but. .is there anyway to remove the glowing outlines?
