It's called "haloing", and it's an artifiact of HDR processing to bring everything in the picture into proper exposure. It's more noticeable in the B&W version. If I was going to do it right, I'd blend out the halo. Takes a lot of time to do that right, though.
I think I was a bit confused on the outstoke of my mouth because my thought was more accurately rendered as:
That's similar in effect to what we used to do in the darkroom with dodge and burn techniques but of course the HDR ...
No, I haven't done it. I HAVE read about it. What I was trying to say, Mr. Barbarian [greetings, good friend - Sparrow is amusing himself again], is that I'm familiar with a similar effect, but I'm not YELLING at you, my friend. Jason, the wordsmythe extraordinaire, may have been instrumental in the onset if this hmmmm.... 'triade' ? rant? tomfoolery? by his correcting me when I was speaking my own mind, harrumph! But we love him and he can't help it, poor thing, right?
And sure, it's polite to ask and not assume. Because, as we all know, when we "ASSUME" we make a trigger and throw it out into the air like a mad-man who tosses a fire-brand into the air near the crowd over there and hopes somebody will catch it just for fun. (scarcasm leaves a scar and you touched a soft part of me - I've had surgery. (self-whisper: "If you stop and drop you might pop", at least that's what I told myself which is probably a good thimk to do with a self-whisper, direct it toward yourself, that is.)
Sparrow says, "You might recogognize the name but I ain't the same." You may call me "Fragile" but I won't go to the Mods and ask for a name change just for you, and why should I?

Changing my name would be costly.
Wanna help? I'm thinking "Cynwyddon" because it sounds like "Sin? Why? DONE: (with 'dat) except for the occasional stubborn oopsie and if you see your brother give offense? Ye shall ask. God gives life! I'm not trying say, "Run to God with your brother's deadly sin, either, so don't try to put words in MY mouth, ya git me?" Quit hearing the opposite, you cantankerous, curmudgeon, you!
I do know the difference (or at least one difference) b/w analog and digital. Do you? Can you explain succinctly? No? Neither can I, but then and again, you know this much.
Sparrow is seen cacklin' to himself while he teeters off, all the while muttering... a jumbled mumble at that.
Thought-bubble says ". o O (( I wish I could FLY - then I wouldn't have to teeter like this..."))

Indeed. Harrumph. Yo
You scene it, did you? Ya goof! You are loved, and I'd say, well loved, Mr. Cranman, very muchy, but then you knew that. Don't git me started... 'cause I might just say, "http://farbspiel-photo.com/original/reducing-halos" to you, which is all Geek to me evn tone-mapping.
I did a quote of your post (sneaky me) and then, from the Edit pop-up, looked at the BB Code editor and located your service.

And yes, you may feed me. I open my baby-bird mouth wide for knowledge and especially from an expert who chews it all up for me like you do. Thank you, momma-byrd. I know we won't "stretch" the permissions of the OP either (also) b/c Barbarian is just a name for one of the sweetest ppl I know, this being spoken in semi-formal Past-Mod to Mod talk, but that isn't needed either b/c it's questdriven who might look and alarm if we are outta line and we aren't. Hey! There, Q! Shout out to you. So much love here for your art too!
