Challenge #6 in the The Power of Editing series. Hosted by sagebrushfire.
Challenge has finished
This is the most common use of HDR. Can you take advantage of multiple exposures to create a colorful landscape with a wide dynamic range? Use your photography and editing skills to create a landscape that has a a classic HDR look, specifically it should have a high dynamic range and NO areas of unnecessarily blown highlights or blackened shadows. Use of multiple exposure is not 100% necessary when shooting in RAW with certain cameras; you can get very good dynamic range if you know what you're doing.
