    New to this too - HDR example

    I used the auto in CS4, think I over cooked the the clouds. I took 6 shots with this in mind. I also thought the difference between the highlights and shadows would be a good tester.

    Actually, when I say dodge and burn I refer to the general practice of locally altering exposure. Some use HDR/tonemapping software, some use curves layer masking, some use the dodge tool and burn tool in the tools panel of photoshop.

    Here I used "highlights/shadows" in edit > adjustments, and clipped the blacks with curves (or levels).
