I love HDR, inspired by Trey Ratcliff. Suddenly photography wasn't such a disappointment and I could bring back the memories and put them back together in the fashion I store them in my heart. It also allows me to take liberty's with lighting and the like. Some of these have been tweaked to look a little more like they'd look if the light was perfect, rather than just OK, on a particular day. As I get a little more comfortable with my current style I notice that I'm creating pictures that look a little more like paintings, this is not accidental.
