I agree that Ken's picture is excellent. is a rare HDR image  
where the technique, like here, is used in moderation, to enhance the  
scene that was already there. Most of the HDR images I have seen to  
date are not like this. They scream, "look, I have a new toy, isn't  
it pretty!"

I suppose that as time goes on, the novelty of the technique will  
wear off and people will use it like Ken did here--to make a good  
photograph better.
