    • Thank you Chuck! Glad you liked the photo. :O) I didn’t know their were ‘debates’ surrounding HDR, preferences yes, but I’m pretty new to photography and I do have a lot to learn.

      I realize just from viewing a scene that one ‘shot’ would not capture all of the detail that contains a wide range of contrasts. And it is fun to play around with HDR artistically too at least for me.

      Always appreciate your input Chuck. :0)

  1. I see that you’re venturing into HDR now, seems like you did it!
    BD, I’m your friend and I should tell you that HDR is not my cup of tea, is simply a digital distortion created by a computer software. The image is unreal! The beauty of the real, natural scene is totally lost. I’m an artist (painting and drawing) and a photographer if HDR was painting I would have accepted it like I accepted Picasso, Dali. I’m opening my mind to my dear friend so you’d know how I think! 🙂

    • Thank you for your insights H.J. You are certainly not alone with regards to HDR. Many others feel the same way.

      I’m a huge geek and I have to admit I love working with HDR for landscape photos where there is a broad contrast range. I’m also a big fan of Trey Ratcliff – Stuck in Customs – who is a master with HDR.

      That being said, I wouldn’t use it for wildlife photography. I prefer to see birds and other wildlife in their natural habitat and attempt to capture and display the scene ‘as is’.

      I appreciate the uniqueness of each individual and how they view the world. We are all so very different and the ‘filters’ through which we see the world vary widely. I have to admit – I really like your filter H.J. :O) and I appreciate that you shared your thoughts and feelings with me. Please feel free to do that at any time. I like to think that I have an open heart and mind towards those that think and feel differently than I do.
