    This is my first try at HDR and the program is on trial version so it watermarked them.

    Thought you all might want to see the new Tempe Center for the Arts. It's RAD!

    That's a lot of photos to C+C. Nice job I'd say.

    I think the first 4 are over done. They last 4 are better. Its easy to overdo the HDR stuff. I like the last two best. The concrete works well in HDR I think. Just my opinions. Take it for what its worth.

    I'm just wondering this. Are HDR images supposed to have a almost unrealistic cartoon looking affect to them? or no?:???:

    HDR is technically supposed to bring out details in shadows and highlights - however the term is often associated with what you see above.

    ...and people don't think about how much depth the image loses.

    Sometimes it works for the image, sometimes it doesn't.

    I know a lot of people who love this extreme type of HDR. Personally I am not a fan of it. I think that there a few from this set that you hit on and a few that you missed.

    #1 I think the haloing in the is extremely distracting.
    #2 It is an interesting shot. It is pretty extreme but I don't think it overdone to the point where it the picture is affected. How did the original come out before processing?
    #3 and #4 I think the extreme HDR works pretty well with the scene. I think it just works with the neon lights and everything.
    #5 Personally I wouldn't have done HDR with this photo. I don't think the scene has a big enough range of shadows and highlights for HDR to work very well.
    #6, #7 and #8 I think these shots are interesting. #6 might be a bit much but the HDR brings out some interesting colors. The HDR works well with the concrete in #7 and #8 is a very interesting shot shot in general, imo.

    Like I said, HDR isn't for everybody, especially a more extreme HDR like you have done here. Overall, I think the shots are good. That building looks amazing so you have an interesting subject and I like your composition. Good job.
