What does HDR'd mean? I'm not very savy to anything tech-ish, but then I'm sure you could tell that from the question. LOL

HDR stands for High Dynamic Range, a fairly advanced photographic post-processing technique which allows photos with very mixed brightness levels (e.g. a sunny scene that is viewed through a dark archway) to provide better visible detail over the whole image area rather than having one part under-exposed and another part over-exposed. It can also be used to create interesting effects and change the mood of photos. There are programs around now which pretty much automate this process for beginners.

See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_dynamic_range_imaging

Counting down the months from my switch

Well I have just switched from CSR (our usual) to POR thanks to this thread. I hope I made a good decision. The resort seems so pretty.

I am curious about the fishing too. Did you bring your own poles or are they there to rent? Something else I know DS would love to try with his dad. Thanks again.

That section (with the island in the middle) is the deep part. Off to the left is the shallower stepped entry area, and there's also a seperate kiddie pool which is only a foot or so deep.

the pool question was answered, so here is the fishing one:
we rented the cane poles at the fishing hole. just a little bit from the pool. the boys loved it! it was all catch and release.

Thanks. I went back and looked at the fishing poles after I asked the question and could tell they were most likely rentals. I guess I should have paid closer attention before I asked. Good to know about the pool too. Thanks to you both.
