High-dynamic range imaging (HDR) is the fastest growing and perhaps the trendiest new technique in photography. By combining several images with different exposures the photographer can capture scenes which are beyond the dynamic range of their camera. The trick is that HDR scenes not only can't be captured in a single image, they also can't be fully displayed or printed in their native form. That means additional processing is required to turn the photo into one which can be used.
How many times have you heard, “Oh, what a beautiful day, not a cloud in the sky!”? Those are the days my camera and I stay home and watch TV. (My camera likes to watch Travels to the Edge with Art Wolfe; he gets to see his cousins.) Being a landscape photographer, I can’t think of anything more boring than a cloudless sky. Clouds add so much interest to almost any scene, that it really isn’t worth venturing out when they aren’t there.
It's easy to take forgettable landscape photographs. I've done it many times. We see a pretty scene, twist some dials, focus and start clicking the shutter. Then we get home and wonder why the results are so disappointing.
