75 Stunning HDR Images: The Ultimate HDR Collection

in Galleries and Collections,Photography

High Dynamic Range photography can produce very beautiful images, and has become quite popular. I previously posted a set of HDR city scenes. Here is a collection of over 75 beautiful HDR images that aren’t overdone. (I think flickr is going to kill me for all the hits!). Also, feel free to post or link to other images in the comments section below.

Note: All of the images link to the original on flickr.

Holy crap, Matt! What a collection.
In terms of HDR inspiration, I am set for a good year or too.
Thanks so much for this.

I’m sorry, but I find these images incredibly heavy handed. It’s what annoys me so much when looking at images in magazines is the falsified highlights and shadows. Might as well just render images in my now. I realize I’m being a sour puss but I really hope this isn’t the future of photography. Also I i’m not sure if all of these images are true hdr because it would require at least 3 various exposures and when applied to subject matter that is moving, would yield a disconnected, fragmented result.

Haha mine’s 36th from the bottom (if I counted correctly) – The one of Georgian Bay. I’m flattered to be in your “Ultimate Collection” :)

Wow! What a great selection of HDR images. These are incredible!

I’m going to have to agree with John here, a lot of these action shots can’t possibly be real HDR images.

These are brilliant!

Oof – like a punch in the eye! Most of these are painfully over-actinic. Like shouting everything instead of speaking; Shakespeare at the top of your lungs.

cool photos

I agree with some of the comments — some of these images are too difficult to look at. Too vibrant, if anything. :-(

There were a few nice examples of subtle HDR in there, although some of them were overdone to the point of having halos around objects.

I too wondered about the action shots such as the rally car, perhaps the action aspect was from one exposure and the sky and non moving components were captured using various exposures??

Some of mine!

Hmmm… only few shots that aren’t too much overdone… And rally shot… can’t believe that its real HDR.

They’re very nice photos. I like them. Thanks.

HDR is possible with an action shot. You take your bracketed exposures from a single RAW image then merge.
