The old warp mill in the afternoon light. This is an HDR merge, hopefully not too fake-looking.

That has to be one of my favourite HDRs ever, HDR never works for me, and I've seen way to many posted where it didn't work for someone else either, they just didn't know it.

HDR has, unfortunately, been fixed in many peoples' minds as an excuse for over-saturated , unnatural images. True HDR, to me, is the bracketing of exposure by a stop or so each way, to get the best balance of overall exposure. Isn't that what it's meant to be about? Trying to emulate what the human eye can do?

You don't say where this is, but it is a good capture of what I saw in western Mass, and the rest of New England, when I lived there.
