My favorite part is all the HDR. All of it.

You would like the tone-mapping.


tone-mapping is not HDR, BTW.


Your eyes see in HDR. If a photo doesnt look like what you'd expect to see in real life, it's not HDR.

Agreed, to an extent. Our eyes aren't capable of exposing a full range of brightnesses like HDR cameras can, and I thought it was in this auto-post processing that the tones basically always get muddled with too much. Maybe not.

But yeah, turn the clarity slider all the way to the right. I'll put my HDR pitchfork away.

High-dynamic-range imaging (HDRI or HDR) is a technique used in imaging and photography to reproduce a greater dynamic range of luminosity than is possible with standard digital imaging or photographic techniques. The aim is to present the human eye with a similar range of luminance as that which, through the visual system, is familiar in everyday life.
if you simply drag the shadow slider as little as +1, you've done HDR.

If HDR is done right you don't even notice it's there.

I'm not here to get in an argument about HDR. I know what it is and what it isn't, and 100% agree with Codrus's thought.

But, HDR started getting implemented very poorly when it was built into a bunch of cell phone cameras (auto-postprocessing of SDR images into an HDR image with tone editing all at once) about 3 years ago, and a lot of people who like shitty photography said "ooooo, coooooolll photo of my slammed Subaru bro!!!" and then a bunch of shitty photographers started replicating that look in post processing of normal photos.

I'll leave my HDR meme comments at home, sorry.

Looks like Mazda USA is entering three ND Global Cup Cars into the 25 hours of Thunderhill.

One's listed as a 2015, I presume it is either a typo or one of the NCs.

Isn't E0 the class where all the BMWs run? Kind of surprised to see the ND with limited prep there.
