What do you guys think about it?

I kind of like it. I don't think I'll do it much but I tried it out for the first time today and it came out okay.

I like it a lot if it's done right. There are certain circumstances in which HDR is really useful; I find a lot of scenes hard to capture because of the inherent limited dynamic range of digital cameras, and when this is the case I'll ususally use HDR to get the photo I want.

hdr is like all other forms of photography. its very easy to create really bad hdr, and takes actual talent to produce great hdr. this is why you see so much of it that looks terrible, and it gets a bad name.

It has been done too much. Everyone is doing it. I do agree David Hill and a few other firms are doing right or doing it to a point where it makes sense to do it. But there are many people misusing it. So my conclusion is that it burned out.

People have misconception of what HDR really is. It is only good when done right and looks like a normal photo, without the haloing and whatnot. I really don't like HDR at all though. People make a normal photo look ugly and think it's artistic.

Well said. A good photo doesn't need to be cracked out with hdr to look nice. Although it is an interesting technique to use, I prefer a normal photo.

I've only really seen a few HDR's that I like. My friend did one a few days ago...



To me, this looks good, but most HDR's look like shit.

^ tbh, I don't see how he used HDR to its effect there. I mean, its just silhouettes of the power lines/towers + sky? You could probably achieve something very similar by just metering the sky and shooting 1 shot...

If you could see the detail in the power lines/towers and trees then it'd be a different story

Yah, the HDR effect isnt that apparent in the picture, which is why I like it. Thats what I'm saying...it isn't that apparent but he did use HDR for the picture. I was using that picture as a reference to show that not all HDR is super apparent and overdone. Something like this too to me is good HDR...

lol that first one isnt even being subtle. thats just straight up not hdr. the whole point of hdr is to perfectly expose an entire photograph.

Kind of a cop out, seeing as how most people do it "just to do it". But if you have the right picture and you do it right, it's awesome

Exactly. There are a ton of circumstances in which it's impossible to capture what you want without taking multiple exposures to capture what the eye sees.

I try to use HDR to make realistic looking photographs:

How is it "realistic looking" when its more of a surreal feeling to it?

I actually like a lot of HDR's. Trey Ratcliff does some pretty cool ones. There's also this guy I found on Flickr from Switzerland, who makes a lot of good HDR's, in my opinion. I can't post a link to his Flickr account yet cause I'm not cool enough, but if you wanna see his work just go to Flickr and search for dmkdmkdmk.
