Fixing A Once in a Lifetime Sunrise, Using Hand Held HDR

A chance to go hot-air ballooning is rare enough, but the opportunity to do it over the 4,000 temples and pagodas in Bagan, Myanmar (Burma) is difficult to repeat. So when the picture perfect morning had too much contrast for my D700 I quickly shifted to using HDR hand-held from the balloon and the results saved the day. I've posted a step by step of what I did and how the images came out on the B&H Blog site. Enjoy!
