Dear all,
I had recently started on taking my clicks [again] after I bought myself a DSLR. I am not a pro, just an amateur who knows a just a basic [or even less] of photographies and takes his toll on whatever knowledge he had gained!! Once long time ago I had started a thread contributing to the beautiful pictures from Nepal for which there were numerous contributers and some of them even professionals. As of now I remember them as Bhanja, I_Nepali, Khaobadi, Aloneguy77 who had some love for this. I hope and think there are still number of us among our community who wants to learn and share the things or two about photography!
Here is to share the first one from my side!

Refer here for what HDR is --> High Dynamic Range Imaging
For producing a HDR image, you should take three or more exposure of same image WITHOUT moving a camera. If you move your camera when taking the three consecutive images then you will get ghosting effects! Normally, Higher levels of DSLRs have bracketing feature which allows you to take three consecutive exposures without manually changing EV each time. Check if your camera model has one or not!!
So for a Nikon D80(which I use), Here is a small tutorial to generate HDR image.

A)Taking Images
1) Always remember to take a tripod to take ur HDR images. This helps to keep your camera fixed for many shots you will be taking.
2)Select a good spot and enough light to get your image.(I don't suggest dark days to take HDR image as HDR image are used to give more details to the pictures and on dark days, you won't get too much details).
3) Select your camera to Manual(M) mode.
4) Normally High edge camera has (bkt) button for auto bracketing. If you have Nikon D80 it is just below the flash button. Press this button and scroll ur main wheel/sub menu wheel to select number of frames (...F Value) and EV spacing (values after F on). I usually take three frames in +/- 2 EV spacing. This normally covers all dynamic range.
5) Focus your camera to your object. If you used auto focus for focusing on the object, then after focusing, turn it into manual so focus won't chage in between these three frames.
6) Through the view finder you can see your exposure value, adjust it using the scroll wheel until the camera thinks it’s appropriate. i.e. until you see something like below.
  +_ _ _|_ _ _ -
5) Now take three exposures of your pictures. and you are all set to get your HDR image.

B) Post processing
To generate a HDR image, you can get lots of software which generates HDR image. I used Photomatix pro 3.0 to generate my images.  It is simple program used to generate HDR images which has simple tutorial with it.Now you combine these three images in this software and tone map according to your preference to produce your HDR image. I also use photoshop CS2 for tone mapping. Enjoy the HDR imaging. I am just a starter in this and shared what I know. If anybody can add on please do so, I can always learn a thing or two!!

I think D60 lacks in auto exposure bracketing and only way to give it shot is changing exposure value each time. Another way to produce (Pseudo) HDR would be shooting a pic in RAW. By changing its exposure values while developing in photoshop and saving each of three differently exposed JPEG pics and then combining them with Photomatix you can produce a HDR image, which u can tonemap to produce (Pseudo) HDR image. This may not be called HDR by lots of HDR enthusiasts but still, it can give as good effect as HDRs with good editing skills.

One of things I learned and want to share is
--Always make use of natural lights whenever available.
--USE tripod whenever possible.(Because I don't like blur in pics)
--Use your own perspective defying the conventional perspectives.

Here is one pic of the day:

I just saw the review on XSI, and I saw some of features are there in that model which is not available in my D80. But I haven't used XSI so can't say nething else. All I can say is, Get a D80 and You won't be disappointed!! =)

Here is one for the day:

Hey Spitfire!!
For a first try, it is very nice HDR! mine was lot worse than that!!
Here are some more tips to make it better:
1) Do u see th halo over the roof on the building at right side:
that is due to maximum strength and doesn't give a good feel to the picture.
However u can reduce such halo effect by:
i) decreasing the strength.
ii) increasing luminosity.
iii) increase light smoothing.
You can play around with these 3 settings to reduce the halo effect. Most of HDR enthusiasts don' tlike Halo in their HDR images.

Here is one HDR for the day:

One Sunny day!

And another one with bokeh!!

Purples and whites
