HDR pictures

I recently found out about HDR photography, which is high dynamic range photography. It uses a bunch of pictures, some underexposed, one regular exposure, and some overexposed. The result is a cool looking picture that has many details in the lighting.

This is where i learned how to do it and i found out that photoshop doesn't make HDR pictures as well as the photomatix program can. It costs money to get the full version, though.

I also found out that it's possible to edit the pics and make them appear like HDR without taking multiple pictures. It's a good way to make those pictures that you can only get one of-like action pictures-look like HDR.

And i guess i should let everyone know that except for this HDR, the tilt shift and the most recent Haiku stairs post, i never used to edit my photos, so all of my pictures that were posted here before June were straight out of the camera. I used to be too lazy to edit the pictures and i still am, so as much as i can, i'm gonna post unedited pictures on here.
