klopus: It's beyond me how blending together several shots of the same scene taken milliseconds apart can be considered as some kind of cardinal sin against photojournalist dogma. In fact when done right HDR actually reveals more detail present in "reality" and closer to how the human eye sees it in a high contrast scene.
Anybody can explain?
It sounded to me like the news article used one image to make the HDR photo; what I call a single HDR. My spouse shots in JPEG. Every now and then she comes up with a nice shot and I enhance it for her by giving it my single HDR treatment. The nice thing about the single HDR process is there are no ghosts in a single HDR image!
