    Good morning....is there a name for this style?
    I can recall a guy that originated it and it may be named after him.
    :thankyou:

    I believe that's HDR (High Dynamic Range) if I'm not mistaken! :rolleyes:

    Ya that's HDR. which is done by taking multiple photographs at different exposures then combining with software. Although, that is a super processed example you posted. I'm sure you could pull it off with Photoshop?...

    High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography

    Yeppers, that is High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography, and although you can do it using Photoshop (I have 5.5), you have far more control and can produce better HRD image processing using Photomatix Pro (see link below). Like has been mentioned, you really need top take 3-5 (sometimes I take as many as 9) different exposure of the same image and using Photomatix Pro, merge them together to create HDR images that are just not possible with a single exposure.

    See the intro video and download the FREE trial version.

    Wonder if you could layer copies of an image in psd, turn them into smart objects and apply glowing edges to each with different values and put exposure adjustment layers on each layer with different values and then experiment with layer blend modes to get the same look in the case that you have to start with a digital file instead of being in the field with a camera.

    Sure you can, go for it and then share your results, however I don't think you will ever get the same results as a true HDR image using special processing software.
