I've found, while looking at real estate listings, some great examples of HDR gone horribly awry. I wish I could remember where they were so I could link them, but all I can offer is this: how come the midday clouds over top of the house are darker than the rest of the picture, and how come the roof has this sky-blue aura around it?

(That's okay, though, because it adds $100k to the value of your home!)

Wow. I've missed my calling. I could buy a Nikon, which is, arguably, better for HDR, and make a killing in real estate because the photos are so clear and hyper-realistic! Those crappy one-exposure photos don't do anything justice. They might even decrease the value of your home!

I'm not sure how a photo of your house can add 100k to the price tag. In case I ever put an offer on a home that uses this "ECL" system, I'm going to take off 100k, because I'm disappointed that the light exposure in the house doesn't look exactly like the picture in person.
