I have been taking some more pictures with my new 50 mm F 1.8 lens.

I am very pleased with how the lens blurs the background and highlights the subjects. However, I started wondering as a was editing how some of these images would look run through my HDR processor.

So… below is the same photo modified in Photomatix. Normally, you would take three images for HDR, but you can use only one and still get some pretty cool effects.

Keep shooting 🙂
