It's a shame, but HDR really has been done to death, and is entering the realm of kitsch.

I don't have anything against the technique! Done with skill and a purpose, it can enhance a great photo but a lot of otherwise ho-hum un-noteworthy cityscapes posted here only stand out because of the awful technicolour glow that's so over the top that it can't be ignored.

Just on this page I see examples of both the good and the bad. There's much more of the latter sadly (in this thread) overall.

It's at the point where I will instinctively favour many of these admittedly technically poor but real shots over (mostly) poorly done phony HDRs. I love it natural!

I don't know where I read this, but I read it somewhere, that Toronto is one of the most photographed cities in the world. When I look at all the great pictures on this site, I'm not surprised. I guess everyone just wants to capture all the changes in this city but it's wonderful for people like me, who love seeing all the great pics. Keep up the good work boys & girls. Some of the pictures here blow me away.

I think that was an article about photos on Flickr. There was a thread about it years ago, but lots of the usual unhappy types coming out of the woodwork to deny the idea that it could possibly be true, all a communist plot, etc.. yadda yadda yadda.
