That's worked out really well - does't look over done - good detail retention, excellent colours & obviously great exposure range


Pentax pour des images riches en détails!

Thanks Sean. Its the best HDR I've done so far.
Funnily I like virtually the whole look of HDRs; some are very bad but I don't mind if they look just like a well taken single shot photo or some of the OTT colour ones.

that's a well achieved HDR shot. DOF is remarkably managed with a nice color palette,.. great shot indeed

hmmm exactly the level of HDR I like a lot - also great to see this nice play of blue shadow colors and warm light colors - perfect sharpness on top

I don't know much about this sort of thing, but i do like the colours and the definition, the light is beautiful too.
Kind regards Maria

Maria - Thanks. I took a spot reading from the brightest part of the window and then the darkest part of the scene. Then I took the pics starting at the first exposure and down until I reached the last reading I took.
Photomatix did the HDR job and it was finished off in PaintShop ProX2.

Many thank Sandinista

Dilek - Thanks for the comments. I think, if you're ever over here, try getting into Canterbury Cathedral; they allow photography and the place is a dream!

Larry and David - Thank you very much! I'm really happy that other people like this as it is my current favourite due to me actually thinking about the shot a long time before I took it.
