So I decided to use Photoshop CS2's HDR (high dynamic range) script and my TZ1 to do some experimenting. I know the TZ1 is not ideal for HDR photos since the exposure can only change by a level of 1 in both directions but I figured I'd give it a try anyway. Below are the source pictures followed by the final result. Let me know what you think.
Now I doubt I did this correctly (it's only my first attempt) but it seems to have worked decently, preserving the details in the shadows and in the lightest areas which cannot be seen in any single regular photo. I know the TZ1 isn't ideal for HDR and I know this isn't exactly the right type of scene to try it on but, hey, not too bad.
