Here's one of my favorite HDR images.

And here are some thoughts on the image . . . things you might want to consider when making a photograph.

- The photograph does not look like an HDR image, because it's not "overcooked."
- The image has good depth of field, because I used a small aperture and wide-angle lens.
- To create a sense of depth, I composed my picture with the wall on the right very close to the lens.
- The upper part of the woman's body is framed by the red frame on the far wall. That makes here stand out in the frame.
- I opened the back door to add interest to the scene.
- I had fun making the image - which is key for me.

If you are new to HDR, check out my iHDR app, for both the iPad and Mac.

Rick I love your work but to say this doesn't look like an HDR image is a little silly. While not as overcooked as some images the microcontrast applied to this is associated with HDR by many people who think HDR is an iPhone filter.

I agree with Ed. Nice image, but it borders on overcooked.
