Default Picassa HDR simulation

The latest version of Picassa has an image adjustment mode called HDRish. I think that it's a pretty good addition. What is the best feature of this is that subjects in motion can now be presented in "kinda" HDR. What is your opinion?

Looks like you could frame it and no one would know that it's not a painting.

Yes, it looks like a Chinese painting.

Interesting. Somehow, the depth got flattened out, for a very interesting effect. Somewhat like a Chinese painting, yes. The process might be worth developing further.

There are two other alternatives to do HDR for moving objects:

1. AutoHDR
2. Shoot in RAW and make a series of different exposures, then process them in an HDR.

Personally, I think the quality is pretty bad. Can't be compared to real pseudo-HDR softwares like the ones by Topaz labs and Lucis Arts. With these ones you can get really good pseudo-HDR images from single raw files.
