Default Church

I don't profess to be a religious man. In fact, I don't profess to much of anything. But I can profess to living in the town with the oldest Methodist church west of the Rockies. At least according to Wikipedia.

This photo, hand-held after dinner last night, is a 7 image HDR taken with one of the E-M1's built-in HDR modes. First time I tried the 7 image mode. If you want to experiment with HDR the M1 can't make it much easier. There are 7 HDR modes altogether. 5 are for traditional computer processing and range from 3 to 7 images at 2 or 3 stops. My one attempt at using the 2 camera-processed modes left me wanting. For folks not interested in processing multiple raw images though I suppose it's a plus.

The images were exported from LR for merging in HDR Efex Pro 2 then back to LR for final processing.

Religious or not, churches as architectural subjects are great to shoot, and this one's very nice. When I go to church ( can't remember the last year) it is Methodist. This is the classic design. Thanks for sharing.

G'day cP

I like it mate - great colours and a full tonal range

Well done
Phil

I'm with you on that. I particularly like steeples and thought they might make a fun coffee-table book project.

Thanks Ozzie! I tried not to overdo the tone mapping for a more photo-realistic appearance.

Same night, another view. This time a single raw file completely processed in LR except a mild color punch in Topaz Adjust 5.

I like both shots, the sky is really nice and the HDR is probably the way to really show the full range, nicely done!
