Most people associate HDR images with a "painting-like" or "surreal" appearance. Using Photomatix's Tone Compressor method, a more "real-looking" image can be achieved (more on this later). I split my time between NYC and DC and I love going to the Marine Corps Iwo Jima Memorial in Arlington Virginia. It's just fascinating!
Tech Specs: 3 exposures with tripod, Nikon D90, f/8, ISO 200. As usual, merged in Photomatix. Fine tuning in Lightroom.
