So, when encountering a reasoned argument, the anti-HDR sentiment comes down to, "sometimes you just know what you like."

However, it would also make a perfectly good counterargument FOR HDR.

Absolutely! I also hate rap music, lima beans and pickled eggs. But I would never insist that they are wrong in themselves (well maybe some rap).

It reminds of a comment about driving where someone quipped 'anyone who drives faster than me is a maniac, and anyone who drives slower than me doesn't know what they're doing'. In photography, I work hard to process my images in a way that looks good to me. In that way, I remain true to myself and my vision. If other people like it that's a bonus. My taste, however, has been constantly evolving and greatly affected by other people's photography. For HDR (the overdone kind) I would simply say it is beyond straight photography and as an art form it does not appeal to me.
