Default Canterbury Cathedral, England. HDR

hi guys,

not been on here for a while but have just recently bought a new dlsr and upgraded from the world of my trusty panny superzoom. i thought i'd try some bracketed HDR shots as i wasnt entirely happy with the in camera HDR processing and lets face it, its more fun to process it yourself!

i visited Canterbury's historic cathedral the day after i bought it as a good test for my new toy (Nikon d5100 with kit 18-55 lens.)
maybe a little over saturated but all in all i was rather happy with the images and im looking forward to a second visit this week to try and improve on them.

hope you enjoy these first offerings

regards,
john

Nice set of images... and I particularly like the second one.
Your shadows are not too "pulled up", which I like....

thanks Simon. the second one is a main reason for returning. had i taken my fz100 i would certainly have got the shot i offered to my brother to take. he took it with his hs20 and it came out great. i'll post it in here later for you to see.

the candle wasnt as sharp as i'd have liked it to be, but i didnt want to lose the gold detail and obviously the painting.

again thanks for the compliment, always appreciate your honest opinion

john

Very nice set. I like the third one best. I think it shows the HDR process at its best. (It reminds me of a kaleidoscope, too, like the one in the Catskills, NY.)

thank you everyone for your kind words. the best form of encouragement is praise from those who know their stuff. cant wait to try some more, if it ever stops raining lol

John

All in all a good job. Except for the first shot the rest could use a bit more underexposure to cover the highlights, which in the second shot would bring out more details (color) in the stained glass window. The imagination and workmanship of some people are just insane.
