Re: Why Not Bracket?

When it's possible wouldn't it be better to auto-bracket and create an HDR image? It's pretty quick to set-up and HDR image processing is getting very good.

Exposure bracketing is a VERY useful strategy for ensuring optimal raw exposure even if your ultimate goal isn't necessarily to combine the bracketed images into an HDR image (or circumstances make it impractical or undesirable to combine them). By exposure bracketing, you're able to choose the single best image for balancing the tradeoff between blowing desirable highlights and improving shadow/midtone SNR.
