Very nice.

Is the second shot a HDR?

wow Genelle, very impressive indeed. Love #1, #3 and #4 the most. You have a really good eye for composition which is so important! Look forward to seeing more of your work.

HDR is a technique you can perform to increase the dynamic range of a photo, but a lot of the time it looks fake and silly though if done properly it can look really cool. You usually do it by shooting three or so separate images at varying exposures then superimposing them on top of each-other.

Well that's my lesson for the day!!! :p

Do you have a gallery of your photos Genelle???

this is an example of HDR that is a bit extreme on pulling out different settings


edit....

here is a more "wisely" example... not my work...

Yeah that is "overkill" HDR, it can look cool if used in the right context but I am not a fan of it in normal photography tbh unless used properly. I will try to find some examples of it being used wisely.

Good use of HDR:


In the end I prefer using filters though to keep the sky and ground both well exposed and not blowing each-other out but HDR can be used really well for some great effects.

Yes, I'd agree that this is a good, subtle use of the technique. (Technically speaking you can't "overdo" HDR. It's the tonemapping that is sometimes overdone by cranking the settings up to the "My eyeballs are bleeding!" level. :))

At the end of the day, there's no right and wrong use of the technique. It all depends on the result that the photographer is trying to get, or the type of image they're trying to convey. Like all art, it's a matter of personal taste.
