Default Practice what you Preach

So I took my cheap $160.00 P&S, correction DSLR out for a test drive yesterday. This church has always given me fits. The spotlights are just to strong even for HDR. I thought the bigger sensor and more DR might help, but you can see the results from the first photo. The problem still remains. Then I recalled the technique I used in a tunnel of problems. This is in the HDR forum. I then created a so called artsy HDR. This is the second photo. Then through PS created the final image-third photo. Problem solved...

Thanks everyone for commenting. This technique really comes in handy for a variety of situations. Not all lights are created equal. This will tame the ones that stick out like a sore thumb. Very useful for correcting hotspots in clouds and when shooting scenes with fast moving clouds that can cause a ghosting effect. I always shoot 0 and -1 as my first 2 shots on a HDR sequence. Then if the sky looks funky with movement (3 or 5 exposure HDR) I will convert the 0 or -1 (RAW) into 3 TIFFS and HDR process them and then use that as my sky.
