Thanks, you have a good eye. Camera is a Canon DSLR. Any good camera would work for this. It's a composite blend of 5 different exposures from -4EC to +4EC in two stop increments, blended in Photomatix, and finished in Photoshop.

HDR photos are really not for me - while I can see the fun of creating a WOW effect picture that is not nor was it ever really that way in the first place (pretend is fun) - 99.9% of the time the WOW is so far over the top it takes what would normally be a decent picture in its own right and transports it to cartoon Bizarro World.

My .02 - Your mileage will vary and most likely does.

to each his own. however you are slightly mistaken. HDR does not create something that is not there. all it does is enhance what the camera often looses.

yes, some people get cartoonish with it, but I think AZJeepNewbie is a perfect example of using HDR without going overboard.

Ding, ding, ding! We have a winner. The trap that people fall into is thinking that a conventional photo captures what the eye can see. This is false. A DSLR captures about 6 stops of light. However, the human eye can see around 12 stops of light. And each stop doubles the amount of light. So that means the human eye can see 2^6, or 128 times more dynamic range than your camera can capture. Take that shot of mine where I shot into the sunset for example. A conventional picture would have yielded either a nicely exposed sunset and a silhouette of a Jeep, OR a nicely exposed Jeep and a totally blown out sky where the sunset is. However if you were there, you would have seen the entire Jeep plus the incredible sunset. So using a HDR to combine multiple exposures actually gets you closer to what your eye truly saw. Yes, you can overdo HDR, and many or even most folks do. Those two shots of mine are overdone to some degree. But there still a heck of a lot better than what you would have gotten with a single exposure of the same scene.
