There doesn't seem to be much middle ground when it comes to HDR as people will either love it or hate it. However, in the latest revised edition of David Nightingale's book, all based around the use and application of HDR, even those who say they dislike it may soon be warming to the idea of using this technique in some of the work they produce once they've read a few pages.

The book is full of excellent, practical examples of how HDR, when used correctly, can work and help the photographer succeed in capturing a shot that's full of detail and really holds the viewer's attention.

OK, some of the images aren't always what you could describe as 'real' but if you're not a fan of this exaggerated look at reality it doesn't mean you shouldn't have a read of this title as there are also examples where the effects aren't so extreme but still bring some of the detail that would usually be lost in a shot through, thanks to the HDR technique applied.

The book is easy to work through with tutorials that are set out well, are well illustrated and the language used through out isn't too difficult to understand. The pros and cons of different methods are discussed at length and even someone who has used HDR for a while will most likely find something in this book they can use to improve their technique.

The images, of which there are plenty, are inspirational and the text is insightful, making this a title that should go on the book list of anyone who's just starting out in HDR or who wants to brush-up on their technique.
