I've been playing with a photography technique. HDR or High Dynamic Range imaging.
It's fascinating. I've always been frustrated that I could either capture detail or light, but in most cases not both. So here is my first try...
My bracketed photos:
Correctly exposed (taken on aperture priority mode)
Under exposed (-2 automatic bracketing)
Over exposed (+2 automatic bracketing)
Now the image created by merging the photos using Photomatix (which you can get the free trial, it just has the watermark - as seen on my photo below)...
It's a fun technique. To see some amazing photos taken using this see here.
