In Front of the Flames

To HDR or Not to HDR, that is the question.  For a while I thought that was an easy question.  HDR brings out more detail and color, but I’ve found in the grand theme of photography, sometimes the best emotion and feeling from a photo is not brought by revealing everything.  Although I still find myself excited to do HDR work, I also am enjoying expanding into new attempts at different styles, and I find that to be quite rewarding as well.

Late in the evening, as the fire begins to falter, a few logs rekindle the blaze and the light.
