HDR is kind of divisive - some people like it while others really abhor it. Regardless of how you feel about HDR, I think it might be nice to have a separate category exclusively for HDR or tone mapped images (maybe under photoshop art?) so that they could duel amongst themselves and not against more "traditional" captures.

Related to the above, it might also be nice to have some kind of preferences for the types of images you see in duels. Perhaps a way to exclude or limit images from a few particular [sub] categories? For example, personally, I'm not really interested in photoshop art and would just assume not vote on those one way or the other.

Keep up the good work!

HDR images seem like they should be their own category. Or at least a sub-category.

HDR Category? yes I'm sure a lot of us are using curves and different sliders to increase the overall dynamic range but photos that are clearly HDR should they be put in Photoshop category?

Hi everyone,
I'm new here and I like it. However, having voted on a number of pictures I would like to suggest to have a category for HDRs. I have very occasionally played with HDR myself but honestly I'm not a big fan of this kind of images and I think there are just too many of them on this site. I understand that others might enjoy them but I believe they shouldn't compete with traditional photography but have their own category instead. What's your opinion?
