Last night I wanted to experiment with HDR. However, not just 3 or 2 photo HDR, but also the advantages of using software vs. multiple exposures. Above and below are 2 photos I took. The first photo in each set is a regular photo and the second is the HDR result. In each, I liked the first photo rather than the HDR version. I must admit, I really liked the effects on the second set better, but the cars standing still kind of killed it for me.
Camera: Sony A7R
Lens: Sony SEL16F28 16mm f/2.8 w/ Ultra Wide Adapter = 12mm f/2.8
