It took me years to finally warm up to high dynamic range photography. I still use this technique very sparingly and only when it really needs it. I still see far too many cartoonish, overly saturated images that to me seem way over processed. But when faced with extreme conditions like the image above, it can be a great technique if not overdone. Other then blending multiple exposures by hand there is no way to capture the deep shadows and very bright window light in this image of an old schoolhouse. This was shot with a tilt shift lens for perspective correction and a 5 shot HDR.
