HDR (High Dynamic Range) is a technique that combines multiple shots into one. When you look at the combined shot, it looks much better than the original shot. Dynamic range is defines as the level of exposure between light and dark areas of a picture. Generally, pictures that have low dynamic range often have darker shadows and bright highlights. However, the pictures that have high dynamic range have balanced shadows and highlights.
Following are the situations when you shouldn't use the HDR
1. You shouldn't use HDR while shooting movement or action: HDR is not the technique to capture motion, movement or action. Using HDR in these situation may result in blurry and un-clear picture. HDR shoot three photos at different exposure settings; namely high, standard and low. If your subject is moving, then it becomes difficult to capture these shots. The final picture won't look very good.
2. You shouldn't use HDR while shooting high-contrast scenes: Some photos look better with stark contrast settings between the light and dark parts. The best example of it is silhouette, where you do not want a single ray of light on your subject. However, if you use HDR for silhouette, it will highlight your subject. HDR makes it less intense.
3. You shouldn't use HDR while shooting vivid colors: You do not need HDR when shooting with vivid colors. HDR will wash them out.
