Default Plymouth Church

This is a hand held shot that I took using HDR of Plymouth Church in Des Moines, IA. I used my Canon 60d and Photomatix Pro. I'm still learning the HDR process so any helpful comments are welcome.

Good morning,

Please take my comments as a constructive critique but when I look at your image the following strikes me;

My eye is immediately drawn to the sun instead of the building. You may want to consider cropping it out allowing the viewer to concentrate on the building instead.

There is a little lens flare at the lower left hand corner which you might want to eliminate.

The details in the shadows are obscured due to the aggressive tone mapping.

The colors and detail of the building itself are so rich and interesting that I think , in this particular case, a less aggressive approach, IMHO, would give you a superior photograph.

YMMV

Zig

Well apparently, by your lack of acknowledgment, I'm left to believe that constructive criticisms are of no use to you.

Sorry I didn't get back to you zig. Yes, your comments are most appreciated. I haven't been on here for awhile so I thought I'd let you know that I'm taking your advice to heart. I'm still learning about composition and technique as far as processing & am definitely not the best photographer in the world, so I'm working on it. Thanks for your helpful advice & will be posting more & hopefully better shots soon.
