I've been reading up digital blending, mainly due to the fact I'm saving up for some LEE Grad ND filters but have still come across some fantastic compositions that I want to get out and take. I hate HDR tonemapped images, but I understand why HDR is fantastic for images such as sunsets etc where the entire scene has such a huge varying dynamic range. Which is where I've come into Digital Blending, DB seems a lot harder to do in terms of playing with post in PS (layer masks etc) and not only that, if you've framed your scene you have to work out the exposure for say the sky as well the foreground which might mean you have to move your camera up and down to see the TTL light meter at different points which could inadvertently give you different exposures of slightly different images which you will have to stitch together correctly. Whereas HDR you can use simple exposure bracketing to capture the images vast contrast differences and use a simple program to stitch them together. But then you get the horrible HDR tonemapped look. I was wondering if there is a way to get results like Digital Blending with a HDR method of taking the images?
