I am currently in the midst of teaching a class of new photographers and have, of course, been touting the wonderfulness of high dynamic range photography. I explained to my students that the best way to accomplish HDR is to take three bracketed shots and combine them. You can however, apply HDR to only one shot and get some pretty stunning results.

As you can see the results are smashing. I love the way HDR brings out the texture of the barn siding and the colors in the sky and on the foliage.

Keep shooting 😉
