Kind of HDR

Hi,
I would like to ask for help considering the kind of HDR processing in PSD with following questions:

sample photo as example for this kind of photography but I would use if for nature photography also:
http://www.garageglamour.com/forums/...ls-go-bad.html

1. I do not have any plug in for it and I do not know which are plug ins that make/or/simulate HDR in PSD...???
2. Is There any standard PSD filter that can be used for such purpose or not...
3. Is there any free kind of HDR plug in for PSD since I do not have possiblities to buy it online...
4. I'm currently using PSD CS2. Is there any new filter in newer versions of PSD for this purpose or not....

Thanks in advance..
regards Zak

Re: Kind of HDR

It's not really possible to 'fake' HDR. High Dynamic Range photos look they way they do because they are blend of several photos, which makes for one very detailed photo. There aren't any programs or filters that can 'add' detail to a photograph.

There are plenty of tutorials that show you how enhance a photo to the point that it looks HDR-ish. The easiest way I know is to increase the contrast and saturation a little, then adjust the curves as best you can (see thumbnail).

Re: Kind of HDR

You could also take your RAW file...open in your RAW converter and adjust the exposure up to 1 and down to 1 and keep the original at 0. Then you can use photomatix to create an HDR image from one shot using the 3 different exposures.

I've tried this and the photo usually comes out worse than if you just did some basic alterations in PS. Since you're just using one photo, you're really just playing with the contrast. As I said, there's no software that can add detail to a photo.
