Uh no, real professionals shoot with film. (Flames to /dev/null :)
I don't see the point of this article. Is it to make mediocre digital shots look worse? There's a reason why highlights are blown out. Tone mapping is a Flickr freakshow, as other commenters also opine. This article would have been better devoted to: 1) buying a good lightmeter and learning how to use it; 2) photographic exposure from first principles through to Ansel Adams and what HDR is supposed to be used for, also see Debevec's original '90s research. Then you can write an article like this without looking foolish.
The Grumpy Editor should, in this Grumpy Commenter's opinion, avoid photographic topics in future.
