    I decided to play with an HDR software, hdrsoft.com. It merges bracketed photos to get detail in otherwise high contrast images. You take 3 photos (on a tripod) and vary the exposure values high, mid, and low. Drag and drop them in the software and play around with effects. Here's a shot from the property during a full moon sunrise last week. Normally the foreground is too dark and the moon too light. The merged photo brings both into play. I think it works nicely and the software is real easy to use.

    It's amazing; I really like what can be done using HDR. Even my iphone has it, although it doesn't have much of a dynamic range. Nice photo!

    Most of the new DSLR's can be set to do this automatically! You set the ranges that you want and press the shutter release once. The camera takes three pictures and processes them all for you, creating the one image. Pretty awesome stuff!
