Sometimes I go through the HDR process and for what reason? Here is an example. Even now I ask myself why I bracketed
this shot. F1.8, is there are reason to process HDR/Tone Mapping/Exposure blending at such large apertures?
I suppose I was stuck with the challenge (self imposed) of doing the best I could with a boring subject, I mean a rake is a plow is a how is a part of harvester.....
Sure, I've done it at wide aperture, it depends on what you're interested in capturing. If everything in the background of that harvester was blown out white, even if it was just blur, it would just look like white nothing. So even HDR is useful there, to give some body and color and texture to that blur, instead of just blown out white or something. Especially at wide aperture.
