If you want to see how I made this (and how you can too!), visit my HDR Tutorial. I hope it gives you some new tricks!
This was taken this evening at MGM Studios in Disney World before we went to go see the big fireworks show. The only problem with making your family and 6-year-old son (he is now 8) stand around while you set up your tripod and take a bunch of shots is that it gives them ample opportunity to see little toys they cannot live without.
I took so long to nail this shot that we ended up buying two things that lit up in garish colors and made a lot of racket.
This is a 5 exposure HDR shot at 100 ISO. Whenever there is anything like streaming lights, sun rays, search lights, and the like, the HDR process always makes them pop a bit.
