Technique: This is a manually created HDR image, through digital blending, i.e. manual blending of layers in photoshop. Digital blending allows for displaying a larger spectrum of dynamic range between the dark and bright tones, as well as deciding on selecting desirable details from various exposures. In this case I mixed the steaks of car lights from 3 exposures, and then the dark and brighter parts of the photo from another 2 captures.
