Sounds like an HDR free study...

I can't see how it has anything to do with HDR whatsoever.

Raking light is one time when you almost never NEED any HDR...

well, to be fair, you COULD use HDR to really accentuate the light/dark contrasts and textures that raking light is supposed to bring out... but agree HDR is not necessary and would likely lead to overbaked images...

Yeah, but that's not HDR, that's tone mapping. What most people think of as "HDR" is these exaggeratedly/dramatically tone-mapped renditions that, as often as not, come from single exposures. From a purist's point of view, a *true* HDR image is one where you couldn't even TELL it was HDR unless you'd seen one of the original exposures and realized how extreme the contrast was in the scene.

Raking light doesn't have to be the only light.
