Thanks simple. The black and white looked good too. I've just started showing friends my HDR work on Facebook and started a group. Amazed how many people joined already. Its hard to find mutual appreciation for HDR among the regular photography fraternity lol

Hi FITCIP

You certainly have captured and processed a special image here. If it's the effect you want - I can imagine that you're very happy with it.

To me, it does lack a bit of sharpness, contrast and definition (it almost looks like a painting) - which isn't necessarily a negative - just it lacks the 'photo' feel I prefer - which I do realise is a personal preference.

I do enjoy HDR photography a lot - and my post processing is tailored to look as natural as possible, rather than 'flatten out' the dynamic range to the extreme. It's true most 'single exposure' photos exaggerate the shadows / highlights too much - and some 'recovery' is helpful.

Thanks for sharing your photo. The symmetry and design of the church is appreciated.

Regards

Paul

I like this. A great example of cases where "overcooking" an image can succeed very well.

thanks for the comments guys. my style of HDR processing as you can see, is more of a rendered 'poster art' look. i prefer a good standard photograph to a realistic HDR photo as it often still looks like an average photo that got a good bit of photoshop and people rarely appreciate what youve done, or maybe don't understand the concept. i enjoy sharing and its always nice to see a positive response.

thank you all,
john
