HDR [first try]

Small local church in Grinzing, made with Photomatix
Funny how some areas which are dark in the originals came out brighter than those parts, which where bright before...
Any clues? Which software do you use for creating HDR images ?

Gorgeous view/capture Chris. Your first HDR is exceptional.

After a bit of an absence, partly vacation but mostly tax season...busy for bookkeeping businesses... I'm glad to be back out here with at least 'some' regularity. I've missed everyone and am glad to have a little more time again.

I think the composition is just great!
But to tell you the truth, I don't like HDR photo's.
They are unnatural to me and often unnescessary.
If you want to get a more balanced photo straight out of your camera, then select a setting like neutral instead of standard and use a low ISO value to get a long exposure time.

If you can't find the words, you may as well shoot it...

this is nice chris, its a good attempt at hdr! i have photomatix too, but have only tried it once and was not so pleased with the results, i need to play around with it more i think before i am happy with what i did! this is good though, the only thing that bothers me only a tiny bit is the lack of shadows in the roof area, i think there should be more, but they maybe are the areas you talked about coming out lighter.

Chris, Of course I read the comments above and that makes it more difficult to me to give an honest and objective comment. In the first place I have to say that this composition is, without any doubt, wonderful. In the second place I have to agree with Paul, the more you've made in the past excellent photographs of Vienna Church interiors even without HDR. Compared with this image, to me your HDR-less images are more natural, and more beautiful than this one. That's my honest thought. Regards, Cornelius

In nature scenes I'm usually not too fond of HDR, but this works beautifully Chris, very impressive

I think this is a very good shot, Chris, but I have never tried HDR. It would be interesting to compare this with a "standard" shot.
