Is it 'full width' on histogram as published? It looks just a little flat/under exposed, the first was better in that respect.
I agree the third is a bit strange colour-wise, although the stonework looks natural, the windows (I assume it is daylight outside?) are too blue.
I don't know really, but cheers dave. I bang the lowest exposure up to the right and it is HDR of 3 frames 2 ev apart.

To me, the first is spot on, the second has a strange purplish look in the dark areas and the third just looks like blue sky outside. But I do like the composition of #2. As Dave suggests, a nice anchor point in the corner there.
Cheers Ashwin; but I get yellow stone with white windows. The windows were slightly blue though.
Last two HDR before I start on LDR
This door is hardly ever opened; there isn't a timetable for opening the door, it is 25 feet high so it is unreasonable to ask for it to be opened. So when I saw it open I was amazed, but tried quickly to get an image on thirds. This is where the straight jacket kills you since it would be much better to get the whole door. It is however still a reasonable image.

I am as happy as can be with equipment I've got. It is a bit like the orbs, maybe it wouldn't happen with a cannen, but I like it anyway.Anyway with Mixed lighting, dominant source of light will effect other part of the photographs.
It is very difficult to get proper white balance for whole picture. Either you have to be satisfied with the acceptable result, or you have to white balance it selectively.
I never try to get white balance until I get home, then either I can see a white point or use auto but as a last resort take white balance from another photo taken in the same place around the same time.
But of course white balance changes with angle.
It is very bright Ashwin You have got the colour right but it is overcast outside and only one floodlight is on in here making it feel dark. Mind you it isn't as dark as other parts of the cathedral since most of the windows have been removed and covered, to be replaced I'm told in 2014. That is a long time to wait.
At the time of merging the layers this brighter photo was on top layer, I realised my mistake when I posted the corrected version here, but some how thought let what are the comments coming. Anyhow here is my darker version
Cheers Ashwin, the colour is spot on. I don't think those grills on the floor are radiators, I think they was made circa 1250 ad and are made of stone and despite windows all round this place is so dark there is a light inside the cabinet to illuminate precious items, in the front a book. cheers
Exposure up to 10.4 seconds at av 6.4 and 100 iso, but it was banged up to the right so 2/3 of a second for windows only.
They are radiators; I didn't see that until I saw your PP. Wow I wonder how old they are.
