Another experiment with HDR, without actually taking an HDR photo. One of the things I like about High Dynamic Range is how easy it is to create striking images that jump right off the screen. Of course the artist has to decide if they want the effect to be subtle or go buck wild.
Clearly, I live buck wild.
The effect isn't that hard to do. In fact, Photoshop has a command called "Merge to HDR". Otherwise you're stuck creating multiple layers with varying brights and darks (like I did) and fight with the blending layers to get it the way you want it (like I did).
Just play around with it, and if you get stuck, do a quick Google search for "HDR Tutorial" and it will help you out.
