Photo Sharing; HDR

I've sseen a growing interest in HDR on the board and am an avid fan of the technique as well. We've got brand clubs, ultra wide so why not HDR!?!

A lot of photographers (I've read) look down on the technique as over saturated clown makeup lol, lets prove them right and wrong!

I'll start it off with a few of my examples.

I for one love HDR photos For me it adds another dimension to these pictures and make them look surreal. I enjoy seeing them along wish fish eye and other gimmicky type shots and lenses.

Nice photos by the way Daisy14'sDH

Your pictures are fantastic. I do think extreme HDR images are a whole independent category, apart from "regular" photography. But similarly, black and white photography is very different from color photography.
There are times that an over-the-top HDR image is stunning, and there is a place for photographs that most accurately reflect the real world beauty of a scene. And there is a time for the drama created by b&w.

While no where as dramatic or technically great, I thought I would include this shot as an example of a more natural HDR for discussion purposes:


This was produced in-camera on my PnS in the "backlight HDR" scene mode. Without HDR, my first attempt at this view only had pure bright white clouds, but that is not what I saw with my eyes, so I was glad to have this mild HDR to bring out the shadow detail that I saw.
I have mote vivid HDR modes but nothing I've taken ever has the complete flair of the above photos.

Yes, really 2 very different uses of HDR -- A mild effect, just to bring out the shadows and highlights versus the hyper-real images.

I think there is a time and place for both.

I'm still learning my Sony a57 and it has built in HDR. I know a majority of you do your own HDR in post process. How does in-camera HDR differ from post processing?

With post processing you control what you want. With in camera processing, the camera decides what it thinks you want.

The in camera HDR is a simple and effective way to increase your dynamic range significantly. That is, really bring out shadows while also protecting highlights.
Typically, you get a "realistic" picture with increase dynamic range.

When doing it yourself in post-processing, you really can go about it in many different styles. Also in post-processing, you include tone mapping while doing the HDR merging... creating the hyper-stylized pictures that you see. The pictures often look more like paintings.

So when doing it yourself in post, there are many different ways to process the outcome. When the camera does it, it gives you a pretty simple form of increased dynamic range.
