    I know I could Google it, but I'd rather ask those who have done it/know for sure.

    I believe I am right when I think that an HDR image is a series of images at different exposure settings blended together to form a single image in which every element(sky/ground/trees/etc) should be in correct exposure range.

    Am I? I'm interested in trying this out, but wanted to know more about it.
  2. yeah, that's right.

    Set your camera up on a tripod and do 5 exposures all at 1ev difference, generally vary the shutter speed not the aperture to get the difference.

    Then blend them together, the best program I've used for HDR (High Dynamic Range) is Photomatix.
