So I recently posted some pictures on O&E of a neat little place I found near me and as I do with all my images, I have them uploaded to Google photos, well after a few days Google finds that I have exposure bracketed images in the roll and decides to HDR the images themselves. In the past the results have ranged from an “good try” to “horrifying”. Lately though the algorithm is getting better, to the point were the results are almost what I would call good. But let me put it to you. Which do you prefer? My photoshop or the Google algorithm? Mine will be on top, Google on bottom.

The Google ones are a lot more saturated, but frankly more than I would like and the results in the mountains is why...they look a little unnatural.

As for the rest, I think they did an amazing job on exposure and detail. Thoughts?
