Not all photographs look good straight from the camera. Especially those scenes with high dynamic range might need special treatment. Below is a perfect example how an image looks when exposed normally (0EV) and how it looks when it is processed in an HDR application. In this case it was Adobe Lightroom 6 and the final image was composed of three separate shots: -3EV, 0EV and +3EV (underexposed, normal and overexposed). Difference is enormous, you may say that this is cheating but in fact that place seen with your own eyes was much more similar to the processed image than to the one on the left.
