HDR (High Dynamic Range) Photos

High dynamic range (HDR) images enable photographers to record a greater range of tonal detail than a given camera could capture in a single photo. This opens up a whole new set of lighting possibilities which one might have previously avoided—for purely technical reasons. The new "merge to HDR" feature of Photoshop CS2(normally i use Photomatix lah..) allows the photographer to combine a series of bracketed exposures into a single image which encompasses the tonal detail of the entire series. There is no free lunch however; trying to broaden the tonal range will inevitably come at the expense of decreased contrast in some tones. Learning to use the merge to HDR feature in Photoshop CS2 or Photomatix can help you make the most of your dynamic range under tricky lighting—while still balancing this trade-off with contrast.

Here are some shot that i've taken and turn it into HDR. Sorry if my photos not that good. By the way, im still learning too.

St.Joseph Cathedral
This is the only shot taken with my Canon 350D and turn it to HDR. I use up to 6 different exposure shot to create this. This is one of my 1st attempt..

The Sarawak Muzeum( one of my favourite )

One of my 1st shot for HDR with Nikon D300.
Taken early in the morning and I love the colour of the sky.

Nikkor 80-200mmf 2.8 ED

This is one of my favourite lens that i can afford to get soon. Cost bout RM3.4K.. Hope by this month i can get one of this. Its has been my dream lens since i change my gear from CANON to NIKON. But the 70-200mm f2.8 VR is still the best among this range of lens.. N it is very costly to me. Cost around RM6k for a brand new set..Here r the specification bout this 80-200mm f2.8 lens. Jus a summary from KenRockwell:-

Name: Nikon calls this the Nikon ED AF Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8 D
Optics: Sixteen elements in eleven groups. Three of them are of ED glass.
Diaphragm: 9-bladed diaphragm with nine conventional straight blades. They make a nice 9-sided polygon at all apertures, unlike the AF-S that simulates a circle at larger apertures.
Filters: Uses standard 77mm filters.
Close Focus: About 5.5 feet, which is pretty good. That's about a foot less close than the AF-S when I compared the two directly, and about the same as the 180/2.8AF.
Size: 3.4" (87mm) around by 7.4" (187mm) long.
Weight: 2 pounds, 14 oz (46 ounces total or 1,300g)
Case: It comes with a fairly useless case. Just put it away someplace for when you sell the lens.
