Over the past few years I have done some experimenting with High Dynamic Range photography and have posted about it before. When I first learned of this I thought of forest parks where the ground can be dim and the sky quite bright. I have had varying degrees of success with this and still try it on occasion. People who see it tend to love or hate it. I am the same in sometimes I love it, sometimes I hate it. I have had success where the photo looks so natural I would be hard put to tell it was HDR and other times it looked very HDR and awful. Yet other times it looked very HDR but I like it.
In this photo I used the 24-85 at 24mm. 3 epxosures 1/640th, 1,400th, and 1/250th sec iso 200
