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.

I agree with the spirit of this question. But people seem to like it. When you review shots picked as 'winners' in galleries or competitions there is a huge emphasis on post-processing - there does seem to be a general preference for 'fake' drama, and a sense of artificiality. Particularly for landscape shots.
