Nice, can't even tell it a HDR. Like the yellow morning light on the bird.

Music to my ears. Thank you very much. For some reason, HDR adds some texture to plumage in a way I like very much.

I like mild HDR photos. I hear people say HDR is cheating, I'm not really sure that is a true statement. Have heard said that film has almost twice the dynamic range as current digital cameras. If that is the case and a digital camera user does a HDR, then isn't the end result the same as if it was shot with a film camera? As to the over done processed pictures we use to do that sometimes in the darkroom. I really don't see any difference between using HDR or a darkroom to add some extra dynamic range to a photo.

Hope this reply isn't to far off subject but I just came in from doing yard work and it's hot outside.

I started in photography with film, and I can remember learning the zone system, which does pretty much the same thing.

And I can remember people complaining about that, too as being "excessively complex" and "cult-like."

Had to mow the lawn today for the first time this year. You'd think they'd figure out how to breed grass that grows so high and no further.

I sat through a talk on Ansel Adams's Zone system given by one of his photographer assistant. That was back in 1979 and I'm still trying to understand it all to this day.

If this is HDR, I'm a sold. Nicely done!

Nicely done. HDR doesn't have to look like an overprocessed cartoon. It can (as this one is)be a very subtle addition to give more detail in the darker or lighter areas.
