    @dmapr: Thanks for sharing that. I suppose the "purist" photographers would have an issue with all the computer involvement, but today there are fewer and fewer purists in photography. Most already use post-editing software. So while the art of taking the photo is becoming more automated, the art of composing the image is still left to the photographer. Those that enjoy the challenge of manual settings will balk, but that's progress. (I personally do like the proud feeling of accomplishment when I setup my DSLR "just right" and capture a challenging image but with my failing vision, I've had to depend more heavily on the camera to select focus and more.)

    @KevinJames, I completely understand where you're coming from. It's also a very hard to resist temptation — punch some color here, clear out some red eye there, etc. But I suppose if you're willing to take 64 exposures to get a single good image out of it after putting a couple of hours of work into post-processing, you do deserve it :)

    @dmapr: I think I used -2, 0, +2 (HDR) to make this image (lobby of Orick motel in Orick, CA):

    That looks very clean, I can't see the noise in the dark areas. Handheld?
