HDR is particularly appealing to landscape and architecture photographers. That means we all, by default, tend to pretty wide-angle with our shots. We keep seeing more and more awesome stuff we want to fit into the frame!
But don’t forget that HDR can also do amazing stuff for tight shots where the compression factor can give its own level of intrigue. This photo below is a 400mm shot (or so) of one of the most famous waterfalls in Yellowstone.
