    To return to the original thread subject, thats the main reason I stopped buying the UK Black & White Photography mag; too many overcooked digital images converted to mono infiltrating the reader portfolios.

    Typically HDR has become associated with extremely distorted digital images giving an unrealistic view of a standard subject.

    The image below was a HDR image consisting of 5 digital images to control detail in both the light & dark parts of the image.

    The image below was on 5x7 Foma 400 film developed in Divided Pyrocat HD to maintain detail both inside and outside of the building.

    Ed- I have no issue with either of your examples - your color image shows appropriate use of the technique because it truly looks like what the eye would perceive. There's no false color, there's no bas-relief effect, no lack of true highlights or shadows as is all too common in HDR work. What I was upset about when I posted the original comment was the hyper-exaggerated, technique-in-your-face style of HDR that is being rewarded. I would never know your Wells Cathedral shot was HDR until you said something, which is really the way it SHOULD be.
