How to create HDR photographs using Photoshop CS2

I wrote a tutorial recently about how to create HDR photos using a digital camera and Photoshop CS2. It's a lot easier than you'd think -- and can have cool results (sometimes). Photoshop's HDRs tend to look a lot more realistic than the stuff Photomatix (the other main HDR rendering program) outputs and Photoshop allows much finer control of the final product. I've yet to get HDR to work in storm photography, and I suspect that I won't, since the clouds tend to move too much between shots. However, someone else out there might figure it out, and if you do -- please tell me! :)

You can read the tutorial here:
That's incredible. I hadn't seen anything about that before, as I use photoshop, but I'm not that into a lot of photo manipulation.

But even for novices, that seems like something that can blow the socks off folks. Thanks!
