So, I've seen so much HDR (HIgh Dynamic Resolution) around, and I really liked them, and I wanted to try it. However, I only have Photoshop Elements, and it doesn't have the Merge to HDR option that the complete photoshop suite does. So this is my attempt at it, done with masking and lighting/shading.
(HDR is achieved by merging layers of the same photo from different exposures to get well, a dynamic photo)
Do you like it? Or do you think it looks too fake?
