I agree about the HDR - they can be truly
, particularly by people who think they want haloes around everything and an overall 'cartoon look'. They can also be very good ..... Flickr has a group for 'Realistic HDR' - you can send them as many pictures as you like but they are, I'm glad to say, very picky. The only clue to a good HDR is when you get none of the 'artifacts' but have a better-looking exposure, which has details in both the shadows and the highlights. In many cases, layering of bracketed shots in Photoshop or similar works better. IMHO.
