I wanted to share an incredible HDR tutorial I found tucked away on a blog called stuckincustoms.  The author’s name is Trey Ratcliff and he has amazing, crazy HDR skills.  I stumbled across the tutorial while browsing his top 100 pics on flickr.  It is 3 pages long and worth reading every word.  I would like to add my two cent and say that instead of blowing 300 or more bucks on lucis software, pick up the Topaz labs “adjust” plugin (for around $50 – or better yet, buy their software bundle) and follow the steps recommended on Scott Kelby’s “photoshop insider” blog.  Topaz labs also offers a free 30 day fully functional trial.
