Natural look v.s HDR: where it is real?
Look at these two shots: one is HDR made from 3 exposures, another is a single shot of non corrected exposure.
Which one is more real?
Do we see things like on the HDR (some will call it overdone, some will not)? Probably not.
On other hand, is a single shot represents reality? Nope, even 16 bit sensors can't record what we see with naked eye.
So, which one is more interesting, more likely to be noticed and more likely to be printed and hung on the wall?
