Randy, your photos of this church's interior are just about the best HDR I have seen. If it isn't HDR then I cannot imagine how you did it. Wonderful exposure technique. #10322005

Harriet - Thanks. This set of images are not HDR, although I would normally do so. I almost always shoot three shots for scenes such as this one, and did so here. However, as I did not have a tripod, the HDR "mash up" did not look good. So I pushed the raw and did a little filtering with Nik and layers in PS to pull the color. Original jpg used posted here, so you can see how much information is still in the raw file. #10322302

I know what you mean. I use a single photo, copy it five times then run it through Photomatix. The program "brackets" the exposure in the five shots. Then I work with the tonemapped photo in NIK, CS5, Lightroom and/or Topaz. However, your shot here is so noise free and natural looking that it is amazing. Have you ever been on a workshop with Ed Heaton in WV? My friend and I did this workshop last October and you look just like a man in the workshop. Thanks,
