I am confused


General Photography

Alright, I do realize that this post might tick off quite a few people, but here’s my question anyway: Am I the only one who thinks that HDR photos mostly look like old colour postcards? (sorry for the probably non-ideal link to old postcards - if you know a better site, let me know) You basically get the same effect: The colours look gaudy and artificial, and the scenes look somewhat unreal, the only difference being that HDR photos look crisper.

PS: Alright, I do realize I’m being somewhat unfair here. However, in my defense: Most of the HDR photos that people have linked to (and that I thus stumbled upon) look like the ones that I am talking about above.
