What is HDR (high-dynamic-range)?

HDR is a set of techniques to add light and color to the shadows and dark regions of a photographic image.  In addition, bright, over-exposed regions of a photograph are given rich color and darkened. In theory, this can better approximate what the eye is able to see and a camera cannot.
