I don't know...I still prefer the art of photography to the art of photo manipulation. But...I simply cannot deny the surreal beauty of a well-done HDR image. So I'm gonna continue to work with it until I can use the technique occasionally to bring a "normal picture" to heavenly life. Here is a drab scene in my backyard, using 3 exposures at 0.3 EV intervals: This scene would not even normally be considered as "photogenic". It's barren in the wrong way, it's dirty, and there is too much "movement" in the tree limbs, IMO. But using HDR imaging...it becomes magical and surreal...an interesting image, though I hesitate to call it a photograph. Here is a landscape that was nice in it's own right. But I used 3 exposures at 0.7 EV intervals to achieve a nice HDR image, which I later converted to greyscale: What do you think?
