You've done it again, Scott. These images rival some of your large panos, although fundamentally different, of course. They are absolutely superb. I have been looking for an opportunity to try HDR, but haven't been taking any landscapes. I'm sure I'll find some when I go west again.

Thanks Elisabeth-Ann, Bob and Stan. I appreciate the kind remarks!


Stan, don't be afraid of the city shots! I bought the camera for outdoors landscapes, migrated to a lot of bird shooting, but I've been having a blast in Boston lately. It's different, no doubt, but the opportunities are endless. I'm sure that St Petersburg and Tampa would yield some interesting stuff. I drove over that bridge (Sunshine? Something about Sun??) years before I had my camera. I would love to get a shot of that bridge today!

Actually, Scott, I have been thinking of doing some night shots here, just because I am bored. However, I had not thought of that as an opportunity for HDR. My interest in HDR has been strictly for those outdoor shots with a huge DR. I'll have to re-think this.

BTW, so many visits to the Pru Building and I don't recall ever seeing that church. Pity.

Sclott,

Excellent work. There is still enough contrast that it looks natural. Any chance you could post one of the images so we could see what a single frame looked like?

This is the brightest RAW image in the series, and what I would have posted if I hadn't played with HDR. Note though that the image below has no post-processing beyond resize and sharpening. Most dramatic is the perspective correction applied to the image above. But pay attention to the lights - the difference really shows off some of HDR's really good stuff.

Here's a rollover page that will flip back and forth between the two images: http://www.itsanadvent​ure.com/postimages/Mot​herChurch.html (external link)

Hmm, when flipping between the two I noticed that the HDR version lost a lot of the light that hits the square tower. The HDR version is quite dull now, for that section. This shows off some of what's bad about the HDR process - or at least my skills with it.

Scotty,

Thanks for the single image. I agree the square tower looks better with the stronger shadows from the stones and the highlighted face. This may be overly picky, but I like the stars in the single image. They are keen small details for me in a spectacular picture..

Amazing photograph. Every stone in the building appears to be well presented. The night sky is nice and the reflections are superb. The second shot has many of the same elements just more subdued. The faint shimmer in the reflection is great.
