Re: Crispiness and too much detail in Real Estate Photos

I shoot a fair amount of real estate. I only use HDR when outdoors in high contrast lighting or indoors when the window light is so bright that I cannot overcome it with bounce flash.

What puzzles me is why you are getting more detail with HDR. HDR does not change the resolving power of the lens, which resolves the same # of lined per mm no matter how you shoot.

I'd guess (really a guess) that the HDR shots are at higher contrast and that is creating the appearance of more edge sharpness that you get with flash, which is pretty flat lighting. I really don't know, and I would like to read some opinions on the matter from those who do HDR.
