Welcome to the HDR advanced technique forum
There have always been scenes with a wide contrast range impossible to capture, whether on film or on a digital sensor.
Technology keeps on advancing and the Nikon D90, D700 and D3 were proof of great improvements, not to mention the D4 and D800, but ... it is still hard to completely reproduce what our incredibly adaptable eyes can see under tough light conditions.
When neutral density graduated filters are hard to apply, High Dynamic Range Advanced Technique (HDR for short) has to come to the rescue.
How to make it work for us and what software tools further help while keeping a natural look is what this forum is all about.
Learn, share, inspire and be inspired.
Have a great time :-)
