Here's a recent example. I took the following three images
|1 1/3 stops under-exposed|
|1 1/3 stops over-exposed|
I then tried a new Photoshop technique called Apply Image Masking. I learned this from a recent article on the Light Stalking website. In less than one minute in Photoshop, I created what I think is a much more realistic image. I then applied the same On1 Effect filters. Here is the end result.

I think I have found a new go-to tool for my image editing toolbox that I will use instead of HDR. This will not work for all situations. If there is movement between the different images, such as a person walking or trees blowing in the wind, defects will be produced that look like ghosts.
I love learning new things and the realm of digital photography is always changing. I wonder what I will learn today?
