    St. George's Anglican Church in Gores Landing, Ontario

    I took this shot during Open Doors Northumberland, of St. George's Anglican in the same hamlet of Gores Landing on the south side of Rice Lake. It was produced from 7 shots taken 1-stop apart, the windows with that yellow-green colour really through a colour cast inside so I had to do some work to get it to appear more to how my mind was seeing it.

    Cheers:

    That is a beauty. It's the richness of the tone in the colours. Wonderful bit of work.

    Beautiful shot and work Allan. If this qualifies a HDR then it completely changes my opinion of HDR. I don't know if this counts as a compliment, but I cannot tell if this is one shot or many combined. The colours and tones are so natural.

    Definitely a compliment. That, I think, is what good HDR should be about. Indeed, it was what HDR was developed to achieve. The heavily tone-mapped image resulted from, I think not-so-well developed (subtle) software and someone thinking, 'Oh, that looks quite nice'.

    That's an excellent piece of work from both a compositional standpoint and in the processing. The textures that you have brought out are particularly pleasing.

    Nice shot Allan - the old church still has that United Empire Loyalist look about it. The processing was done very tastefully.

    Got to love Open Doors days; more photo ops for all, especially if you can get a moment alone with the room / building.

    Donald, Trevor, John and Manfred thanks for you comments, I am working at making it look as close to how my mind sees it or remembers it. I usually just do 3 shots spaced 2-stops apart, however I felt that this needed more so I took more and took my time until I got what I thought was right.

    Cheers:
