In this installment of our Lightroom videos we're looking at the new(ish) HDR module. We have an example of Joe Cornish and one from Tim Parkin. The results from the HDR module have generally been quite surprisingly good. If there isn't too much movement or flare, the software does a good job of creating a believable result and, more importantly, creates a file with all of the information included so that you can make significant changes to a picture, such as graduated filters or local adjustments, without problems.

Here are the images we'll be looking at.
