    Heres an HDR image of the dome of Florence composed from 5 exposures.

    This is what it looks like straight from photomatix:

    I prefer the second but have been told by friends that the first one is better.... Any suggestions/opinions would be appreciated!

    I like the second one a lot better. The detail of the building is better and the darker clouds look much better for this shot.

    I like the first one better, for me the slight blue in the sky kinda pops in the picture. But thats just my two cents... Nice Photo.

    My vote is on the first one... I agree with stickman about the light blue sky

    So shop in the blue on the 2nd. I like the surface contrast on the second one. I like how there is a brightspot on the circular window that acts as a focal point for the image, where the 1st one is just too flat.

    i like the second one but id like a touch more of the gold highlights in the center on the building. also, there's still a bit of a halo around the building that could be cleaned up with the dodge tool. beautiful detail.

    Nice one. I also prefer the second. It is much crisper.
