Keeping It Real with HDR

While most HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography is beautiful, fascinating and sometimes even surreal looking, it does not in most cases represent the reality that the human eye sees. I decided to create the above HDR photographs to illustrate the clarity, depth of details and color saturations that can be brought-out in a more realistic looking image when using this type of photography. I did very little post processing of the above images except of course for the combining of (5) frames to produce each HDR image. The clarity, depth of details and color saturations in these HDR photographs are due to the multi-frame Exposure Biases (-2.00 to 2.00) of each HDR image.  There is a large range of possibilities for creativity when using High Dynamic Range imaging.
