    Thanks for the tips, I haven’t tried it myself but have thought about it but didn’t know of an appropriate program. You have done all of my leg work, now I just need to buy the program.

      Thanks, Frank. You are definitely one of my favorite rail photographers… Your dedication and the length you’ll go in order to get some amazing shots is really admirable. I think that you’ll find this technique quite useful if you ever go out to get another train/aurora shot.

    I’m not a huge fan of “obvious” HDR. It can make for cool art, but I tend to like photos that are more realistic.

    However your article does a great job of pointing out that a lot of well done HDR doesn’t look like HDR. Used that way it can obviously be a good tool for making pictures that match what the eye sees.

    Great writeup on a controversial and oft-misunderstood topic, Emily. I have nothing against the HDR technique (I’ve used it myself), my issue is with poor results. I shoot RAW and often use the leeway it gives me for dodging/burning and curves tweaks. I’m sure many purists would find fault in my work…there’s one photographer in my local photography group who certainly does!

    Well-done “true” HDR (composite images), while I don’t shoot it, is a style I enjoy. You have a clearly defined style to your work, which is something a lot of photographers struggle to find. I think I’d recognize a real Emily Moser photo even without your name attached!

    ‘Straightening out the fish-eye’ is neat!
