20 HDR Images of City Landscapes
High Dynamic Range photography is a popular form of photography that involves capturing a wider and more natural range of colors and illumination. To say it in plain English, High Dynamic Range technique or simply HDR (as it is often referred to as) produces surreal images that blur our sense of the difference between reality and fiction. They are produced by combining a set of images (usually 3 or more images) into a single photo, and adjusting the contrast ratios using HDR software program to do really incredible things that are not possible with a single exposure. Believe it or not, these photos are all the same shot. However each shot is taken with a slightly different aperture and shutter speed. To stabilize camera between shots photographers usually use tripod. These images are merged together using a program such as Adobe Photoshop CS2 (this program comes with a ‘Merge to HDR’ feature) or Photomatix Pro 3.1.
So, basically anyone with a digital camera (with ability to adjust aperture and shutter speed settings), tripod (or any other stationary support) and HDR software can create original High Dynamic Range photos.
This post features 20 surreally beautiful and highly professional HDR images of cityscapes. Most of these photographs are award wining photos; they are not just standard panoramic images.
