Joy and I spent a couple hours in Nashville.  I took a few pictures to capture the city against the dramatic clouds.  With this scene, the combination of the deep shadows along the city streets and the bright, sunlit clouds made it impossible to fully capture with a single exposure.  Therefor I took three pictures at different exposures and later combined them using software (HDR Efex Pro).  This technique is known as high dynamic range (HDR) photography.  Depending on how the image is processed, you may not even be able to tell the technique was used.  While in other cases, it can be used to render pictures that almost look cartoonish.
