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! :thumbsup2

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

I for one love HDR photos :thumbsup2 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.

    Some of my HDRs are just fused exposures to extend the DR so the scene is more fully captured:







    Some are less subtle via tone mapping:







    Others are unashamedly over the top:

    Great shots everyone! I still haven't found the right HDR tool for my liking, but for the meantime, I'll enjoy looking at all your wonderful artwork!:thumbsup2
