20 HDR Tutorials and 50 Inspiring Photos

High dynamic range photography can produce images with colors and contrast closer to what we see in reality, or give your photos a supernatural look.

The different HDR styles are not for everyone. Sometimes the best HDR comes when the effect goes undetected. Other times, the illustrated, hyper-realistic processing is more interesting.

Either way, HDR photography provides some great inspiration.
