Not really an image to show off - but I thought it was interesting in that this was taken mid-day in harsh light and I used the in-camera HDR on a 5DIII. It was just something to try while playing the waiting game for good light and / or action - in this case, it was about a 10 hours under the Sausage tree...but worth it later in the evening.
My point: in-camera HDR is worth trying in some circumstances...if only for fun.....beats a totally blown out sky.

Thanks for looking and, "I hate HDR" comments welcome

Love the sausage ornaments Jim and sleeping with the sausages beats sleepin' with the fishes!
I have never tried HDR but this looks promising!

I'd say this worked. Nice shot, and not overdone at all. This is good to know.

Hey Eric, too bad Central Park is not full of Sausage trees - we'd probably run into each other looking for tails.
Try it sometime - when your Leopard is asleep, frozen or dead......movement be bad.

Looks to me like they are turkey sausages, they put the cat to sleep! I like the shot for middle of the day, works for me

That works for those difficult shots up into the trees. I am impressed.

Hey Jason, yes it's 3 shots blended in-camera. You have control to do it from mild, like this, or nuclear.

Hey Tim, It's a fun harsh light/high contrast option - and if you like the results on the screen, you can process the raws later more precisely.....Jim
