I have never had much success with HDR images. I know what to do in theory - it just never seems to work in practice. So, I'll be honest - I avoid shooting HDR as much as I can and often well past anything you would consider wise. In situations that clearly call for some allowance for high dynamic range, I'm pushing my exposures to the limits of what I might be able to work with in a single image. So you might imagine my surprise, and delight, when I processed this image. I'm not certain what I did correctly this time - I need to figure that out so I can learn from it because this is one HDR that works perfectly for me.
