Thank you to all the photographers that shared their best HDR photos in this photo contest by SLR Lounge. "HDR (High Dynamic Range) is a set of techniques used in imaging and photography to reproduce a greater dynamic range of luminosity than possible using standard digital imaging or photographic techniques. The two primary types of HDR images are computer renderings and images resulting from merging multiple low-dynamic-range (LDR) or standard-dynamic-range (SDR) photographs. HDR images can also be acquired using special image sensors, like oversampled binary image sensor. Tone mapping methods, which reduce overall contrast to facilitate display of HDR images on devices with lower dynamic range, can be applied to produce images with preserved or exaggerated local contrast for artistic effect." - wikipedia

A special thanks to the photographers that helped us find the People's Choice by voting for their favorite shots and to friend and professional photographer Renee Robyn for her collaboration as a guest judge!
