so come in my cave and i'll burn your heart away, come in my cave and arrest me for my mistakes
i used to really like hdr photography. i remember being stupidly excited the first time i managed to get that hdr look. since then i used to tag each photo i posted that used this technique, and then i stopped tagging them as it used it more and more. recently i've noticed that i've been using hdr less and less - this year i think only 8 of the 75 photos i've uploaded have any hdr elements - and even those haven't been that noticeable. there have even been quite a few occasions recently where i went for a hdr treatment, only to change my mind the next day and re-process. i'm not turning my back on the effect, and some of my favourite shots utilise it, but it's certainly something i'm beginning to realise has a certain time and place. and i think inside a cave counts as one of those places. in the past for instance when i shot out from a cave the interior would be pitch black, but combining 8 different exposures (which admittedly is a bit overkill) allows for a lot more detail.
