HDR (High Dynamic Range) images often make our eyes bleed. Don’t get us wrong, we think HDR is an awesome way to bring out lighting in a photograph that was difficult to bring out in any other way, but since the world was first introduced to HDR, it has been a little overdone by some folks. Now sometimes overdone has its place, but we should remember that you can also use HDR to produce realistic and beautiful photographs. Here are a few that we think get the balance just right.
