HDR or High Dynamic Range photography has come a long way since it became popular some years ago. Originally “fantasy” images were created with impossibly even tones that found limited appeal – even harsh criticism. These days things are (although not always) a little more realistic and HDR images have become a valuable part of our portfolio, particularly for our lodge photography. To create this image of the “Honeymoon Suite” at African Horseback Safaris in the Okavango Delta in Botswana we shot 3 pics at widely spaced exposures and then assembled the HDR  in Adobe Lightroom. We tweaked the colour balance, made some local adjustments and there it is:
