HDR style vs Natural style

What is your preference? I guess more edited vs less/no edited photos is the real question i'm asking but there is a huge grey area in between, IMO. Let me know what you like, think, or prefer!

Re: HDR style vs Natural style

I think it totally depends on the image, for me some pictures just scream for heave editing while others look better with just the basics.

Re: HDR style vs Natural style

I agree with Jen. It totally depends on the image, and personal taste.

Re: HDR style vs Natural style

You try to make the photo look as best as possible...if that means a little editing,then so be it.

Re: HDR style vs Natural style

For myself I like minimal processing, like sharpness, contrast, saturation, and exposure for example. I'm more into accurately recording what I see, more than artistic expression. Having said that I enjoy the work of many photographers who use much more manipulation than myself.pith

I agree with Jen, depends on the image and also depends on how well the processing is done, so many people dont do HDR very well when its done properly I REALLY like it

Re: HDR style vs Natural style

I like HDR's but I am unable to do them myself. But it also depends on the image too.

Truer words have never been spoken!

I've seen a lot of really well done HDR shots and they are tremendous images. Then I've seen the one's that burn the image into your retina's...... And the first thought that comes into my mind is "What the heck were you thinking"???

Processing can be a science unto itself. If you shoot RAW your going to need some of the basic's even at a minimal level.

Of course the bottom line is what floats your boat.

Re: HDR style vs Natural style

Personally, I prefer to make my HDRs as real as possible (not that I always succeed--it's far too easy to overdo it with all those sliders and controls). I like using HDR for its original intent, which is to increase the overall dynamic range.

However, I have seen some really phenomenal stuff done with over-the-top processing. The original lighting, composition, and subject matter all are major factors whether the shot works or not.
