This is a photo I found on Flickr. It’s worth going to the larger image on Flickr (click the photo) and view it. I enjoy browsing photography sites and seeing what others are doing. I can always learn something in addition to just admiring good work. This shot is an example of “HDR” photography which is explained in more detail here:
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 allows the photographer to combine a series of bracketed exposures into a single image which encompasses the tonal detail of the entire series.
