I'm not a fan of over done HDR either. I cringe when I see some of the HDR stuff that people post to 500px.com and flickr. When I do use HDR it's usually really subtle and not to the point where it makes everything look fake. As I have learned the proper way to shoot and process photos over the last couple of years I find myself using it less and less but sometimes, like in the instance of this picture it really can be a useful tool.

I agree, I only use HDR as a tool. I try to keep it minimal though, because I don't do any computer processing, I only use the in-camera HDR, which I know isn't as good, but it works for my purposes.

No filters, or digital trickery were used to get this VW van in this yard.

And yes, that is the only gate.

Hey Oaknut ... LOL ... ritual they say ...

This was shot using the grounds and landscaping of a Catholic school in Beaverton .... oh, I wish you all could have seen the look on the Nun's face when one happened to come around the corner about an hour into the photo session, just minutes before we wrapped up.

A blotter induced VW Bus mystery transport....
The Virgin Mary in a staring contest with a gorgeous Suicide Girl....
Trees miraculously growing out of rocks....

I, for one, am stoked. Keep them coming gentleman!

P.S Is that tree growing out of the ground and through the rock.... Or, just straight out of the rock?
P.P.S MickHippy where are you?!?! We want to see more flicks from down under!

LOL ... yeah ... I'm in the mood for some unique stuff tonight. That tree in the rock looking thing was cool. Looks like a living tree sort of, but at first wondered if it was an artificial in a plaster base. Anyway, makes for a cool shot.

Here's an Incense Cedar cone, Spanish Fir cone, and lady is a big Weeping Willow tree.
