Just stumbled across an article about using Lightroom 2.0 to make HDR photos in simple steps. But are the colours and contrast in HDR photos leading to unrealistic expectations from 'regular' photographs? Some of the images made me think I would never be able to take photos like that without digital manipulation. Feel a bit depressed now. A bit like looking at real life after watching a Micheal Bay movie and all of it's multi-coloured filters glory.
