After playing with the default HDR techniques built into PS CS3, I decided to try some tone mapping using the Photomatix plugin.

For some reason, I get some weird white specs (external link) on some parts of the image (see by window bottom and left side by shoes).

One thing that impresses me is that this was taken handheld (hence why it's crooked) at ISO1600 on the MK3. There is almost no noise (except for the grain in the shadows from the tone mapping). This was taken with 3 images at +-2 stops.

Btw, this was just an ugly/crooked test shot/scout of the location. Any tips on getting some nice, bright, stock looking images from this locale with all that mixed lighting?
Btw, without the multiple exposures, the windows are just totally blown out white!

Looks as if its a loss of detail. Even some shadow exposures need more range to depict the detail.

I suggest using off camera flash if you have it on light stands hidden throughout the room to bounce off the white walls or ceiling. You would even be able to match ambient outside exposure with your inside flash exposure. Bouncing off the ceiling will make it look like ambient as well. I am not sure what look you are going for though.

If you bounce off the ceiling with the flash on the camera, you will be limited by light fall off. As the background gets further and further away, you will recede to darkness.

Yeah, that's a good idea. I do have a 430ex and STE2.
