Dynamic Range

I took the pictures shown in Figure 11.4 within a minute of each other from my roof on a winter morning. Anyone who has ever tried to photograph a sunrise or sunset with a digital camera should immediately recognize the problem at hand. With a standard exposure, the sky comes in beautifully, but foreground houses are nearly black. Using longer exposures you can bring the houses up, but by the time they are looking good the sky is completely blown out.

Figure 11.4. Different exposures of the same camera view produce widely varying results.
