HDR. Some folks seem to think it stands for Horrible Deformed Replulsive. Me, I like HDR. I like it when it broadens the dynamic range of a photo to give us a more realistic rendering of a scene as the human eye would perceive it. I also like it when it alters the texture of reality to give us a heightened experience of the image. I like HDR when it scratches my eyeballs.
