    How do you take photos like that? Is it photoshop, is it the camera, or is it “Oh my god, I got so lucky with the timing”?

    I ask because I want to know exactly how much I’m missing not paying a few hundred for an SLR.

    That, my friend, is HDR photography. I’m not sure if you can try it with a point-and-shoot, but what’s not possible today?

    Do a Google search for HDR and see if your camera can be hacked or is setup to support it.

    I love this HDR photo. Thanks for sharing.
    @Chronno, if you like the HDR photo, try or interfacelift for some more.

    I like this one alot; its nice to see an image once in a while that doesn’t come from these two guru’s of the photo world.

    @Hatryst & @Hatch Thanks for that info, I’m going to be playing with that, but it looks like my camera can’t do it natively. I can do it manually, but I’m going to have to do some research to figure out exactly how.

    It’s haloey, overly-done, overly-saturated, unrealistic HDR. I’ve liked the other wallpapers, because they are realistic. Not this one though.

    The most commonly used techniques for creating HDR images are with pc software, such as Photomatix Pro. Many thanks to Asian Angel for sharing this image, and everyone feel free to visit Desktop Nexus often, there are some incredible wallpapers, shared by a group of great folks.

    just why desktop nexus ? they resize to 1440×900 and it looks terrible. I want to be able to crop it down or fit to width and keep that high resolution or something. All these wp’s you give me links to looks all blury :(

    Desktop Nexus will automatically crop the image to your desktop resolution. However, if you click on the big options button in the upper right of that screen, you can pick a different size, or (as I do) download the original resolution.
