Yeah I was disappointed with a lot of them when the sky was nothing but white.

Can you explain HDR and exposure blending? Is it something I can turn on/off on my camera or something I have to do in PhotoShop?

So HDR is when you take 3+ shots of the same scene at different exposure values. So some of the pics are underexposed and some are overexposed, and then you smush them all together and the computer program only keeps the parts of each pic that are correctly exposed which leaves you with one correctly exposed scene. Exposure blending is basically the same thing except you can take as little as 2 shots; one for sky, and one for subject.

Some upper end dSLR's may have in camera HDR, but generally you have to do it in post processing. Many dSLR's have a function called "auto bracket" which will take the 3+ shots at different exposure values in quick succession, automatically which will minimize camera movement.

99% of the shots I take are HDR. It has become second nature to me. Most of the time people looking at my shots do not realize it is even HDR because it looks so natural.

Shot my first autocross today! I shot 444 pictures using my 75-300mm mostly. It is cool to see my progress from my first pic to my last in just this one shoot! Highlights:

Great AutoX action shots. Seeing autocross shots make me want to hop in my car and do a bunch of illegals.
