  1. People either love (artists) or hate (purists) HDR photography. My favorites are the ones that don’t come off surreal or beyond. Anything that brings out the full dynamic range is a good thing. There’s a place for images that lend themselves to art or book illustration.

  2. Its amazing what you can do with a picture today with the technology we got.
    And great list btw.
