In plain terms, High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography is the practice of creating an image that has a broader range of lights and darks than a normal picture could have. The result is a photo that more accurately depicts what it was like to view the scene in person. There are many ways to accomplish this both in the dark room and on the computer. A popular HDR technique is to take multiple exposures of the same scene and use a process called tone mapping to combine the best parts of each into one image.
