    When I saw this window my first thought was the HDR shot that Sparky uses as an example. So this one's for Sparky.



    Here is the room itself. Its the top of one of the turrets in Toronto's famous Casa Loma.

    Like them both. I like when people can do an HDR without going over the top on the processing.

    I'm touched! [​IMG] Although I would have routed that conduit differently.

    Nice work!



    Actually, the first one reminded me of this shot of mine:

    Most HDR shots (especially by beginners) tend to be way over processed. They push the toning and saturation until the shots look like cartoons. Properly done, an HDR can look pretty close to what the photographer actually saw.. good dynamic range, without taking it to ridiculous lengths.

    These looks like they're processed in Detail Enhancer, try to push the contrast/local contrast, they are too grey-ish.

    You're right Echo. A touch of Gamma Correction in Exposure would pop those images a bit. The room itself had a grayish look as the sunshine came through the windows lighting up the dust that was floating around from people constantly coming up and down the stairs. And just before I took the picture a few little kids were running around stirring it up even more. This is another shot from Casa Loma. Its a historic landmark in Toronto. If you google it, there is a ton of info on the place. Here is another couple shots of rooms in the place. Oh, it was the site used to represent the Academy in X-Men. Its been used for quite a few movies over the years. Both of these are 9 shot HDR. I find this causes the final to be flat as you say Echo. I will pay better attention to using the Gamma Correction more.
