Assuming you don't have grad neutral density filters is HDR a good substitute?
6 months ago

Landscapes with sky can be a dynamic range challenge, especially with some shadow in foreground. I've seen stunning results on landscapes with graduated neutral density filters as well as HDR. What's the downside of using the bracketed HDR approach instead of investing in grad filters? This assumes you would be on a tripod in either case. Eliminating the extra filter on the lens would be a benefit of HDR. Other pros and cons?
