High Dynamic Range (or HDR) photography allows for the both lightest and darkest areas of a scene to be correctly exposed, resulting in some absolutely incredible photos. There are several methods to achieve this effect but I’m no expert, so I won’t go into them here. These techniques are used to great effect in many of the time-lapse videos featured in my “Travel the world by time-lapse” series of posts.

I’ve only recently discovered the term HDR, which is probably a little shameful for someone who has been taking photos for as long as I have (but we won’t go there). My subsequent research led me to the realisation that my Nikon 5100D actually has a built-in HDR mode, so I’ve been planning to get out some time and have a play around with it. I turned to Flickr to look for inspiration and good examples of HDR, and I thought I’d share with you the best of what I found.
