Re: R.I.P. HDR
True enough. In a melding of the 2, I can scan a piece of film and pull more from it than I can in the darkroom. Maybe I'm a poopy printer, but there's no easy way I know of that would allow me to duplicate those results.
So I don't have much issue w/digital, my issue w/the majority of HDR images that I have seen is that that they look so bloody fake and affected. It's a look, and if it's someone's look who is reading this, don't take offense. This was the first article I'd seen that finally addressed this out-of-control-sophmoric-use of the effect. One could counter with 'all photographs lie' so then we'd be differentiating between a small fib and a whopper.
Skill in HDR, heck PS in general, comes from using it with subtlety and my issue (which was addressed nicely in the article) is that it's use has been anything but.
