Sites like 500px (front page, take a look!) are full of HDR photography. It nearly always looks cooked and in some cases ruins perfectly good pictures.

I've not seen it yet but I do read occasionally on forums that it can be "done right" or tastefully. It'd difficult to believe that a skillfully exposed image with a good camera can be improved upon with this technique, but I'd like to see some attempts.

Here are 4 images done with different HDR techniques; the first 3 are "normal" images and the 4th one is a more creative image. Might not be the best IQ, they came from FB.

"Right" is very subjective, many people enjoy the artistic, saturated look and you can't tell them they're wrong for enjoying that. I have several friends that love it and they come from a painting background.
