Another early attempt, this would be the extreme end of “subtle” HDR.  After seeing this building several times on the way to and from the lake, and getting my camera for Christmas, I set up my camera for the shot and snapped off just three photos (something I would definitely not do now, as the first set of shots is rarely the best angle, and what ends up working may be far from what you originally expected).

I have to say, the amount of learning about the technical aspects of taking these pictures has been astounding, and it is definitely still evolving.
