HDR Without the HDR Look

Scrub Oak, originally uploaded by Gamut's Edge.

Take that stuck in customs blog! Here's an HDR image that doesn't look like a nuclear disaster area.

HDR is great for scenes like this where there is too much contrast for a single exposure. This is a composite of three different exposures combine into one HDR image in Photomatix Pro.

I grow tired of super saturated fake looking HDR photos, but I do like when it is used subtlety.

BTW, this photo was taken in Shell Ridge Open Space in Walnut Creek, CA.
