This was intended to a be a throwaway proof of concept photo in my attempt to hack my camera into shooting a 9-frame, bracketed HDR. For some reason, I keep coming back to it. The intent was just to evaluate the process mechanics in the camera, then look at the result. The dynamic range is very wide, there's great detail in the shadows and in the highlights (you can see under the TV as well as out the window). When done correctly, HDR can be a terrific tool for getting around a very tricky lighting situation. HDR results tend to be pretty over the top, but this result I like as its quite subtle. Its crooked, and there's no subject of interest, but I still like the photo.
