    I'm not a fan of HDR as a whole...or more precisely the current photo fad of HDR. To me, its a tool like any other to be used in specific situations. I find that you have the basics down, but find a scene where HDR can actually work its magic, something with a high dynamic range in the contrast, and then really make use the tool.

    I actually kind of like this photo... it tells a story... it looks like the room of a 26 year old slob still living at home in his parents' attic... totally unmotivated, the boombox there to play his favorite songs from the 90s when things were better... I think the HDR "effect" actually kind of works in this instance too.


    Hope I didn't offend, just sayin'!

    I like the color and tone, the picture is very sharp and I agree on the messy room :)

    I like it, actually!

    It makes me feel comfortable, like I'm cozy. A photo does it's job when someone wants to be there. In that photo. And you've done just that this morning. Nice work on the HDR, too. :er:

    Actually, normally, in a HDR photo you cannot tell the difference between a regular photo and a HDR photo; except that in a HDR you can actually see details in highlights and shadows, normally something a photographer might use a fill flash for.

    It's the tone mapping people usually go crazy on, and that's really a separate subject from HDR; though most people consider the two to be the same, but they're actually not, and usually blame HDR for the tone mapping fad.

    You can create a HDR without tone mapping and get a superior photo, and you can tone map without HDR and get an artistic effect.

    All the same, I like this photo for what it's meant to be. :)
