Sammon On Subtle HDR

As someone who finds himself physically nauseated by most over-the-top HDR photography—with its syrupy colors and coarse textures—I'm a big proponent of the technology being put to use for more subtle image making. So I was thrilled to see that nature photographer Rick Sammon recently created this post at DP Review showcasing how "the rest of us" can use HDR to more realistic, more subtle, less obnoxious effect. The capability to combine multiple exposures for the simple benefit of enhanced tonal range is one of the best uses of HDR—the kind of use where you hardly know the technique has been applied.
