    I like the look A LOT....

    How'd you do it? Multiple images with varying exposures or just clever photoshop work?

    A bit of both

    There's some good guides around, I think this one was the most useful: http://www.vanilladays.com/hdr-guide/

    Basically you need some software (photomatix and/or photoshop cs2) and a decent camera where you can manually adjust the exposure. A tripod comes in handy as well.

    It takes a while to get into, and not everything is suitable for HDR, but once you get a hang of it it's pretty easy to get decent looking images

    I wish my world looked like that all the time... I guess there's always Lysergic Acid.

    I remember stumbling across some city-scapes of Tokyo in HDR a while back:

    Thanks I took a couple of pics without a tripod (leaning the cam against something else) and photomatix does a pretty good job aligning them. But for best quality a tripod is a must, yes

    Nice! I wish we had stuff like that over here, but I live in the woods and have been surrounded by snow for the past 5 months, which doesnt make for very goods HDR pics. Summer is on its way now tho, so hopefully I'll get some nice pics soon

    Both...it is multiple images at different exposures combined into one. You get pics that are normally not possible with a single shot.

    Well it`s possible to make HDR from single pic. You`ll need to make couple of copies with different exposure in apps like photoshop and than combine them into single image using different blending modes in photoshop or in photomatix

    Basically, if the dynamic range of the scene is larger than the dynamic range of the camera, you need to use HDR to get a good image. Maxxx, I'm sure you've taken a pic where the sky is washed out or appears brighter than it actually is. Just go out and take a picture of the sunset, or at night and you'll see what I mean. This is where HDR helps in capturing the image. For example, that Tokyo shot would've been impossible to get without taking multiple shots.

    Yup....a good, quick way to play with HDRI is take a lightbulb, turn it on, take a pic and try to capture the writing on the lightbulb and also the background fully lit up You'll need a few different exposures to get that one to work, but it's what I've been playing with recently and seems like a good way to learn (took a few tries to get the WB of the background to workout).

    Which is rather easy if you shoot in RAW and have a RAW processor.
