HDR Photography to show what's Outside a window

By combining differently exposed photos it's possible to extend the dynamic range of a scene to match that which the human eye can see. In the above photo two different exposures were combined - one for the outside and one for the inside - to create a more realistic image where you can see the view outside the window.

HDR sample photograph by Robert Berdan ©

Above photos show a dark exposure to properly expose the outside scene, the lighter exposure for inside and the combined high dynamic range (HDR) photo.
