Some really interesting ones nygirl But I don't like HDR, it looks artificial and isn't used in a proper way in most cases (as in the shown ones, way too overdone). HDR is totally overrated and many professional photographers don't use it anymore.

Yeah. I wanted to spice it up. If anything Spudart's HDR shots of Chicago are an exception. Those are just too good for words.

Overrated? That's debatable. It's all a matter of taste. It's just another tool to produce art, how can you say it's not used "properly"? That's like telling someone not to use chalk or oil paints, only pencil.

cbot, I love that b/w looking down Clybourne and Elston
