      The Flaming Star Nebula - click for an annotated thumbnail.
The Flaming Star Nebula is actually just the bit at three o'clock (IC 405 on the annotated thumbnail) and a quick inspection shows how it got its name. To give an idea of how much sky is visible one could fit roughly 25 full moons across the width of the image.

Not your typical HDR look but the image actually does cover an enormous dynamic range.
8 x 1000 seconds exposures of Hα to capture the nebulosity
5 x 200 seconds through each of Red, Green and Blue filters to capture the stars
3 x 1000 seconds through the Blue filter to see if there was any reflection nebulosity
Camera: FLI ML16803 cooled to -25°C.
Captured on the night of December 23rd/24th.

Bob.

While I feel I have absolutely no chance against that incredible image of the nebula above, something is better than nothing!

This fire hydrant caught my eye today between one of today's work appointments in historic Ellicott City, MD.

My very first attempt of doing an HDR photo.
I was not sure what to make of it bu after some experiments I decided to go with the "painting look".

Image

Location: Yuxu palace (world heritage), wudang mountains, China
Camera: Nikon D7000
Lens: Nikkor 60mm F2.8 Micro
Date of photo: 28 december 2011
Aperture F2.8
Photo was created out of 3 photos with shutter speeds: 1/1250, 1/640, 1/320sec
ISO: 100.

Software used was photomatix for tonemapping, and i did a crop.

HDR Church ver2 by 44 Wild Bill, on Flickr[/img]

First HDR shot here too.
Taken on 12/30 w/ Nikon D5100 and 18-55 kit lens @ 30mm
0 step = f/5.6 ISO 800 1/125 sec.
-2 step = f/8 1/250 sec.
+2 step = f/4 1/40 sec.
Just some tweaking in photomatix

Funny thing is I was on my way to the store and brought my camera/tripod just in case....never know when you will see that shot you want.

I finally get a chance to enter this month! Great submissions everyone! I have learned so much from my own research on this month's assignment. I actually like HDR now.
Here's my shot(s). I was attracted to another old vehicle but upon stopping to take a shot of it, this Ford caught my eye and i couldn't resist the rust. I was at the same time learning my new camera so my settings were not very consistent.

Rusty_HDR2 by Blue Noise, on Flickr

This is a 3 shot HDR, each at about a stop apart. Shot on the Nikon P7000.
All post processing including HDR rendering was done in CS4.
Curve adjustments, levels, and a bit of a saturation increase.

[EDIT: Larger image]
