In all my years of amateur photography I finally made the jump to HDR imaging.  Couldn’t tell you why I avoided it for all this time but  I’m considering my first two attempts a success.  Each were taken after dark in the downtown area of Providence, Rhode Island and created by merging five different exposures together in Photomatix.  Post work was completed in Photoshop with some Nik Filters thrown in for a little style.

Don’t know why I waited so long to try this out!
