High Dynamic Range (HDR)
When done right HDR photography can create stunning images which can test our sense of reality in a photograph. There are a set of techniques that can help to accurately represent a range of light levels found in the real scene. From direct sunlight to deeply shaded parts of the scene HDR photography can bring out the parts of the scene that you want to see in your photograph. Personally I am not a fan of HDR software but prefer to assemble the 5 images that I typically use when shooting the scene in Photoshop. This leaves me with a flat and ready to process image. From that point I use standard techniques to bring the image to where I saw it in my mind's eye.
