I have had a lot of people asking me about the photos recently. They have been asking how I get the wide range of colors in the photos so I figured I would let the secret out. Most of my photos are HDR (High Dynamic Range). The way they are created is that they are actually multiple photos that are combined to make a single photo. The way they are created is several exposures of the same composition are combined to create the final image. The way you create it is by taking an exposure to properly expose the shadows, one for the mid tones and finally one for the highlights. After you get the proper number of exposures to cover the scene you combine them with software. Here are the original photos exposed for the midtones, highlights and shadows and then an HDR photo. In the HDR photo you can see how the HDR photo has more detail in the highlights and shadows.
Here is the HDR with the multiple exposures combined.
