HDR is best when it is used to achieve dynamic range the is IMPOSSIBLE with a single exposure, not just as an effect or detail enhancer.  Here is a shot I took a few weeks back that would literally be impossible without HDR or exposure fusion.  It is 7 AEB at 3EV per step.  Yes you heard that correctly, 18 EV spacing total.  My eyes could see it this way, but with a single exposure my camera couldn't.  HDR is as much an art as any other technique.  Use it, don't abuse it.

That's a beauty @!ex. Perfect use of HDR, keeping it as natural as possible.

Great picture!

We are currently at 14 EV if I am not mistaken, so maybe in few years we are there in one shot  ::)

Exactly, frequently we see just opposite  :(

Sort of true, because I am at 14 EV per shot with and 18 ev range on base exposure.  It might be a bit before we get that far;)

Here is another shot from the same day and location as the one I posted above.  Again, try getting this exposure in a single shot.  One of the biggest improvements you can make with HDR shooting is thinking in high dynamic range before you shoot.

That's what I'm doing now, thinking in color.   ;)
