I like the effects of HDR, it brings out details not seen in normal photography and if done well, enhances the photos. I especially like the clouds in HDR :-)) No. 3 is brilliant. Keep on posting your tests, Chrisra! Have a good day!
To be honest, the picture with the woman in your previous post (and her7#) is better, then with this HDR effect. And I think, true photography doesn't need make up. But, this is also a way to express ourselves, and in case of your last photo (9#) the effect works... Anyway, better without, I think.
