This is my first attempt at a HDR photograph. I took this photo yesterday at Lake Wilcox north of Toronto. It was right after a thunderstorm and the rain had just stopped and when I took the photograph I realized that the camera wasn't getting all the dynamic range of the clouds. I used the bracketing feature of my Sony A57 DLSR and took three exposures at a difference of -0.7EV then 0.0EV then +0.7EV. I then used the program Photomatix to merge the three images together and this is the result.
