Default E-PL1 shot of a new church

There is nothing really old in my neighborhood. This church is only a few years old. Taken with the standard kit lens (14-42mm).

Nice, looks like HDR again?

Yes, James! It is done with AutoHDR.

Sorry but I can get into this HDR business. Most of the time, it flattens the image because it eliminates (or drastically reduces) all shadows. I'm sure the original shot looks lovely!

The original looks fine. I am just goofing around.

I know! I'm just not a big fan of the HDR effect unless it's very settled.

I used HDR to enhance the picture a little to bring out the highlight. That is the extent I do most of the time. A lot of people says my pictures do not have the classical looks of HDR. Perhaps I shouldn't say the pictures are HDR enhanced. I am only a causal HDR user since I only use Auto HDr which requires only one one picture rather than the combination of three as required by other HDR software.

I don't know if you are familiar with Picasa (free editor from Google) but they have added some real nice effects, which work real well for normal enhancements. Give it a try if you have a chance. Also, it would be interesting to see a few pictures, some with HDR and some w/o to see if we can tell which is which.

I know serious photographers don't usually care for HDR. For me, I do it once awhile to see how it affect the picture especially one that looks very plain and ordinary. I do use Picasa and have a 20 gb account for storage of my pictures. Most of the time I use ACDSee Pro.5.

Here is the original picture after it been processed with ACDSee without cropping.
