    Funny and timely. For the last 1-2 months I've been looking at other people's techniques and thinking, "Damn it, I suck." (Seriously). I now have hope. I think I'll print this and chart my own recovery. :D:D:D

    Well, camera manufacturers spend squillions of dollars every year, on promotion and advertising, to ensure that you stay there. :p

    They don't want you to become a better photographer particularly, but just learn a couple of new tricks now and again, and keep upgrading cameras every six months...

    I think of HDR like a narrow country lane. You can drive down it OK, but find it's a dead end and there's nowhere to turn round. So you have to reverse the car all the way back down the lane...

    Photography board on 4chan (Wiki link). Basically if you post an image there for C&C it will inevitably get shot down.

    I wouldn't recommend it unless you are very good at filtering out bad posts.
