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.

Very best,

Thanks Stiga :)

Walking around Moline, we should be shooting eagles but they are so few of them it's not to worry with--so into the ice cream
parlor. Natural? Hmmmm. HDR? Definitely. Pleasing to the eye? You tell me-

I'm not sure about the first one. I would like to compare it with a straight shot before passing judgement. OTOH, the farm implement is fantastic HDR, I love it :-)

OK Stiga here is another proper use of HDR, I hope you agree.
The giant windows were blowing out everything, bracketing to the rescue.
Another from the John Deere Pavilion-

Good of you to say so. There is a barley crop in the foreground and some of the southern peaks of the Scottish Highlands.

Visited this bridge near Edinburgh Scotland which looks a bit like the golden gate bridge. HDR to bring details of the bridge and sky colours in check with a slight dehaze applied in LR6

^Nice shot! It's cool how the water in the foreground has an almost metallic look to it.

I agree as it looks over "processed".
