These are single image HDRs, (or as another forum member told me: Lies! Not HDR!

Very nice ... especially the female surfer one, that kind of an image always excites me. ;D

Yes, very nice to me, too. May I ask one question. What does "single image HDR" exactly mean? Is it processed in some different way?

It means to use a single image to process in order to achieve that shot, instead of using multiple shots. For example, the surfer picture would be impossible to achieve in three different exposures and shots. What he did is raising the shadows while still maintaining the high exposure areas. There's also tweaks with some of the buttons (depending on the shots, which might include contrast and clarity, giving a boost and punch to the picture), in order to achieve the same effect as retaining all dynamic range within the picture. The weakness would be that this is dependant on the dynamic range of the camera, while the strength is that it's usually sharp and less variations introduced.

Actually I knew that it means to process a single shot instead of multiple shots. I just thought that the dynamic range of a single shot depends on a camera and you can't achieve more then that.

Perhaps this term means that someone use ETTR technique and then, during processing get better results compared to normal exposure.

Well, one thing that gives and HDR it's look is tone-mapping.  Or local contrast.  There are different ways to achieve it with a single image, but my preference is Photo Matrix Pro HDR Software.  I just love the results and find it really easy to work with.  So technically the Single image HDR does not have greater Dynamic Range, just greater contrast, but the result can be very nice.

One thing I like to do it process a photo normally with Photoshop, and Also with Photo Matrix Pro.  Then I layer them and adjust the transparency of the top layer to achieve a blend I like.
