    Oh and BTW Don, the HDR version of the Chapel looks MUCH better than the original and doesn't look surreal at all IMO. Mirror that as you have above too and you'll have quite an abstract.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    Wait a minute here. The one on the right is the "HDR", combined image? I am seeing more blown whites and more crushed blacks than the original exposure. That image has contrast or curves adjustments that you aren't telling us about. You are supposed to be able to achieve more detail, not less so this comparison is misleading when other adjustments are introduced that negate the increased data in the highs and lows.

    Wow neat stuff, I will have to try amd learn HDR maybe over the long dark winter lol. Ponders turning the "wrath of Don" into wall paper on laptop. HDR is something I have no education in and limited understanding, they main idea is to produce a image with all the highlights and lowlights present with out loss of detail? From my browsing and observations this seems to be most handy for landscapes, I do like the way the clouds "pop" and the effects of sunlight on HDR.
