HDR is software that layer one couple of photo to increase the detail of a photo. You need to take a min of 3 shots, over normal and under expose, and the compute will put them together, and add what every effect you want. I am not expert, but there is allot of examples of HDR.

Walter_S and Hards post allot of hdr edit photos and they look fantastic.

I am a Mac owner, I use apple aperture editing. But I hear photoshop lightloom is very good for editing, and get the hdr software and plug in's for it.

I love taking pics of old abandoned cars/trucks. This is a very good shot.

I like the shot very much..the 'mood' for me was..It looked like that truck was still ready to go...it wasn't tired enough to quit just yet...

I think that had to do with the angle you chose...

You can do pretty good basic editing with Picassa 3. Its free and it has some nice tools like Automatic Contrast that work fine.

I really like Photoshop Elements, and it's not expensive. I used it for a month while my computer was in the shop and never found something that I wanted to do that would have required the full version of Photoshop (which I have on my computer - I qualify for the academic discount so it's reasonable to buy).

I used the trial version of Aperture and liked it very much, but I own Lightroom (started using it when it was in its initial beta version and I was using a PC) and while Apple also offers academic discounts, Aperture was a bit more expensive than Lightroom. Either program does some things very well, but there's other things you can only do in photoshop.
