I still speak to photographers who say HDR is anathema to them but I think that is a blinkered view. This perception goes back to black and white versus colour, and film vs digital debates. Combining two exposures to get more dynamic range was done years ago by Gustave Le Gray in 1856 (apparently, I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm mistaken) and was called combination printing, combining 2 negatives, one exposed for the sky, one for the ground. I'm being pedantic here but used carefully and with consideration it does work.
I know it's another topic but I get so frustrated if i can't get an image as I previsualised it therefore I'll use any means necessary to achieve it, if that means 'HDR' so be it.
