Home Forums Photography Showcase My Feeble Attempt at HDR Reply To: My Feeble Attempt at HDR


You know, take it or leave it, but I think the HDR train may have just about run its course.  Be careful in your application of it, I’m finding more and more people who not only loathe it, but find it to be the mark of an amateur (I tend to disagree, but it’s like so many other things, people remember the truly awful and forget the ones that succeed through subtly…).

If you enjoy it, then please, by all means pursue it!  Just don’t use it as a crutch like so many others.  Halos and over saturation do not make it artistic, it makes an image a mess.

Also, please, please, please, do true HDR by bracketing images vs. tone-maping a single image and presenting it as a an actual HDR, man I hate that…
