This image is actually an HDR. What is surprising to me, is how natural it looks. Not only comparing to what many people publish as HDR images, but also what I was able to achieve so far. Maybe I am getting better in technique. Namely software. I had 6 photos ready to combine, but it seems like sticking to just 3, and not taking the extremes on both sides might have been a good choice. BTW, the FDR tools are nowhere close to how well Photomatix can align photos. Unfortunately.
