    The light given, I am now interested in what the original, un-HDR-ed photo looked like. OF COURSE it is none as saturated, contrasty and DYNAMIC as this version is, but something tells me that the original photo (one of the three, given you took more than one exposure and did not use one RAW-pic and three exposure values of that one) was beautiful already before it got taken through the process. So ... may we see? Or must we not?

    Ok, I guess I can post the original. This one is the correctly exposed one of the 3 exposures I took. There has been nothing done to it except for a little bit of sharpening.

    So I see my assumption confirmed that the un-HDR-ed photo was good enough all by itself. I knew that.
    If I had come past this scene, and if I had had this light, and taken this photo, I would have been happy! I might have felt tempted to darken this one a little just so the colours would come out more, but other than that it simply is good to begin with! :D

    Thank you Corinna! I probably could have gotten away with 1 exposure, but I love playing with the increased dynamic range. I also like to have that sort of "painting with light" look.

    Thanks for your nice comments. :)

    Thank you oldnavy! Im glad you like it. I just couldnt resist taking this shot with the peeling paint and all, on the old building. I appreciate your very kind words.

    Hi Keith,
    Of course you can see it in black and white. Here it is. Thanks for asking! :)
