Question and Background

Which area of HDR photography do you find most difficult to master?

  1. Selection of subject (finding a good scene and composition)
  2. Taking the source shots (setting up tripod, camera setup, hand-holding a shot, deciding for the right exposure values, etc.)
  3. Merging (selecting source shots, alignment, etc)
  4. Tone-mapping (finding the right parameters)
  5. Post-processing (giving your images the final look)
  6. Presenting your work adequately (deciding for the right sharing site, providing an engaging description etc.)
  7. None of the above (It’s a piece of cake!)

Due to its complexity, HDR is a technique that holds a number of challenges in the entire workflow. Therefore, the learning curve is usually steep. But just what is most difficult for you? Let us know and see what the community as a whole thinks about this question.
