The "Cocktails" hdr has a definite look of illustration in it. I like how it came out with some colors really popping here. The hanging lights I had to work with separately and quite honestly, I don't even remember how I got them to look like they were lit. Check out the leaves on top of the photo - they look very graphic.
Bracketed photos - using different settings for the same photo, then using the HDR capacity of Photoshop, you will get a photo that is more detailed and somewhat "artsy" depending on what your settings were to begin with. Experiment here...
The shot of the bamboo trees on the left has a more realistic look but the colors are starting to get a little too saturated for my taste. Some people like it that way - I don't. But the colors that are in it, like the blue, the red and the yellows, added a certain "bamboo-y" feel to this photo. Go figure.
