I don't know about you but I am not a big fan about HDR.
Though I notice than some of my previous try had quite a nice success.
I think the edge is how much we put into it.
So here are 2 tests, one quite strong because it enhance the caracter of the materials.
On the Goellet though, it's minimal, just to balance the sky and keep the full details in the boat.
I hope you let me know what you think.
