This is the place where you can do just that. Please submit your best realistic HDR images, and we shall select the best of them and then create your personal showcase here. Make sure to include your Name, your website URL and any other information (you can also add a little story about yourself ) that you want to appear on  “Readers Showcase” gallery.

Please use the form below to submit your images. Do not submit hi-res images, as they will be rejected. The native size of the gallery is 800×533 1000×670 pixels, but larger images will be resized for you automatically.


please make sure your submissions meet the following criteria :

  1. Supply technical info from the shot, such as: how many exposures were taken, what Ev step in between, etc
  2. Only true HDR from multiple exposures images can be posted here. If you have a cool looking fake HDR, and want to talk about it, please submit to “Discuss it“.

Thank you!

    I am very new to the wonderful and exciting world of HDR Photography and as an amateur Photographer, this is my first HDR piece that I have created. I call it The Dagger of Time. Equipment Used:
    Canon EOS 500D DSLR Camera with EF-S 18-55 mm and a Hama Compact Tripod. My Camera Settings are as follows: f7 with ISO 100, Exposure time of 1.61sec, 6 shots taken. The exposures range from -2 to +2 and then -1 to +3.

    Software Used: Photomatrix used to apply Tone Mapping and Photoshop used for post production. The Shots were initially taken in RAW format and then after processing this work was saved as a TIFF file (45MB). Due to the 400kb restrictions, quite a fair amount of detail has been lost but I hope that you can still see the gist of it.

  4. I have entered this stuff in 3 times and the website keeps erasing my info. LAST TIME! 5 photos taken with the Sony a77. 1/60th to 1/250th with three steps in between. Used the 5 brackets system in the a77 to take the photos. ISO 400 f16. HDR rendered in Photoshop CS6 to lightroom back to photoshop then to lightroom. I like this photograph but it seems that its such a subtle HDR effect that it might not seem like one. If I didnt know it was one, I would not be sure that it really is one. What do you think?

      You’ve made it this time:-)
      As for the image: I like it, nice colors and.. well, I’d change the composition a little, to move a horizon line off center even more. Either down or up.
      You are right, it does not look like HDR, and honestly I am not sure why you were needed 5 exposures: I think one RAW file will look exactly like this after slight processing. Not saying it is bad for the image, as the only end result is what count.. and the result is great here. Ma be Ev step was too narrow for HDR sequence? what did you have there?
      Thank you!

      • I tried to do this with only the 1 RAW but was unable to get the cloud color in the reflection. So the HDR did its job. I used 5 photos because I could I guess. the camera tells me there is a .7 between exposures. Now, thats what it says now but what I had it set on that day could be different! LOL!

  9. This image was shot with a Nikon D200 and a Nikon 10-24mm lens. ISO 100, 5 brackets on a tripod -2, -1, 0, +1, +2. Processed in Photomatix. The HDR was then copied an moved into Photoshop CS5 where it was converted into a monotone image with Nik Silver Efex 2. The Color layer was brought into Photoshop then the two layers were blended for the final result.

    I had to reduce the quality to get to the 400k limit. The original picture can be seen in my Urban Gallery at http://www.pixiclepuppy.com
