This is three-shot HDR taken with my D90 with a 50 mm f/1.8 Nikkor lens. I have this jar of marbles sitting on the window sill in my stairway to the second story. Most of the marbles in the jar are ones that I found while digging in my yard...planting tomatoes etc. This image was processed using Photomatix, Qtpsfgui, and Paintshop Pro. I find that HDR technology is the best way to depict backlighted objects.
