Lecture 21: Image Sensors (33)

Why is it that photos have this issue of needing HDR for scenes like this, yet the human eye has no issue focusing everything with the "correct exposure"? Is it because the brain just automatically does some kind of adjustment to the information it receives from the retina?


There's a nice StackOverflow question on it,, but yeah the brain seems to play a big factor. The second answer was helpful for me.
