i've never liked the way HDR comes out to much, i mean it's cool but... ah whatever. but i was driving along and i liked this swamp so i stoped for a quick shot. the lighting however was impossible. thin cloud cover with the sun right behinde it, and a white haze covering everything. ach! shadows or blowout and nothing inbetween. so i thought, hmm i wonder if an HDR would work? so i finally relented and gave it a shot. unfortunately i didn't have a tripod so there was a bit of image misalignment due to three handheld exposures. but all in all im glad i finally found a time where an HDR was actually needed to get anything at all. any thoughts?
