I think if a RR is done and all the photos are like this it could be very very nice. Almost like an "illustrated" story of the ride. It's a style of photography just like you get styles of writing. So I'm not "for" or "against" it. It has a place. But one or two such pics between normal pics would look "unnatural" or "fake" and won't fit in. It's too obvious that they are manipulated.



I am not sure if this pic is HDR, but if it is I think this is what HDR is for.



Still looks natural.

Someone has been to the BMW World in Munich ;)

I have to agree with BIO.  The idea behind HDR is to capture the detail of the brightest and darkest info in one picture of a scene with a huge dynamic range, so that it actually looks the same as what we would experience.  Not only can the eye adjust very quickly to different light in one scene to create a beautiful mental picture, but it can 'record' 2 or 3x more in the dynamic range (don't quote me, read it a long time ago) than any compact camera...I think SLRs are closer.. 1,5-2x   

That's why higher end cameras have the HDR option built in for jpegs.  Yes, you have much more control to shoot manually in 3-5 exposures and merge it in Photomatrix or which ever software blows your hair back.  And yes, some of us, incl myself, sometimes go a bit overboard to create dramatic pictures.. must be the artist in us ;)

Some HDR





The exposure is maybe a tad too high in this pic.

not a fan at all of HDR, always looks unreal.  besides spending a little bit more time on a shot, some filters , you can get an even better shot than going  HDR!

my 2c,

I agree 100% with you, for landscapes, I use grad filters, very occasionally a polarizer and meter using the "zone system". I personally don't like HDR at all, to me it is not photography. :peepwall:

@Dual - Nice image.

I just bought Aurora HD Pro.  You can try a free copy of the software - http://aurorahdr.com.  You will see some stunning sample images there. 

Of course, like sand riding, it requires practice.  But it is fun to try do something different with your images.  Things easily look overdone but that is not a negative in itself.

As jy na my RR kyk van Schoemansrus EISBEIN TRIP sal jy sien ek het met my Samsung S3 mini geneem

Ek het 'n LIGHTROOM preset gebruik wat dit soos 'n tekening gemaak het

Sal dit net gebruik as ek iets anders wil doen.  As fotograaf mneem ek baie normale fotos.
