Natural HDRs — 21 Superb Examples Of Natural Looking High Dynamic Range Images

HDR is an abbreviated form of High Dynamic Range. It is one of the most interesting aspects of photography. Cameras have a very limited dynamic range and the cameras cannot see what our eyes do. To portray scenes with a high dynamic range, three shots are taken at different exposures — one normal, one underexposed and one overexposed. These three shots are aimed at capturing the midtone, highlight and shadow details. An HDR is a composite image achieved by merging these three shots. While all this sounds easy, HDRs due to technical limitations almost always seem surreal and unnatural. However here are some beautifully done HDRs which retain their natural look, feel and aesthetics.
