....#1
If its #2 its not very good. While the image is brighter overall and the colors more lifelike I cant account for the lack of details in the white fence out front. And its that fence that makes me think its not an HDR. #1 has more details and color looking through the front door at the trees and the white fence. After I applied Shadow/Highlight to it the pic looked pretty good. Since neither is over the top in processing this is a crap shoot which one it is.

Simon - If you are trying to trick someone, you should erase the EXI-data on both pix. Its a dead givaway!



BTW - I did like Ordo and voted #3 because there is a trick somewhere, as your HDR's are usually easy to recognise.....

The special and somewhat strange-strong blue-colors in #2 tell me that it's a rendering.

Not being a HDR expert, I voted number 3, with all the skylights letting in light it should be (should be and is not always the same) easy to get a correct overall exposer.

Aha, so my 3rd version is right. Its a bit of both pics 1 and 2. Most being 2 except for the door area which was taken from 1. I still say 1 was the best for covering the range, but 2 gave a brighter image but blew it on the front door.

I walks into a dark abandoned building at Floyd Bennet Coast Guard base; holes in the roof, no lights, a few peaks of sunlight...

What does it look like to my eyes? Should I HDR it, or should I show you what it looks like?
