So this is my first attempt at playing with the HDR function with DPP and an old image.

1 - the original image is jpeg shot at i think around 7 mega pixels with a canon EOS 300D back in around 2005 as a quick shot i grabbed whilst crossing a bridge near Orton in Cumbria, UK

2 - in trying to learn a little more in PhotoShop (i have 7th edition) i adjusted the curves to emulate an over exposed and under exposed shot

3- Using the HDR function in DPP tone adjusted the composite shot with nearly 100% strength and 100% smoothness with only about 10% fineness. The contrast and brightness were left pretty much around the present level for "normal".

So i know this is faked and i know this could be sooo much better with a true exposure bracketed image and more time working the curves in PS.

This took me about 5 mins and it shows...

I would really like to try HDR with a proper exposure bracketed image with my new camera and a little more time spent on processing. :)
