Another shot from my trip to Ely Cathedral a couple of weeks back.

This time the rebuilt corridor to the lady chapel.

Maybe not enough detail and interest in it for some, but it is one of my more successful HDR images I think.

-2 -1 0 +1 +2 combined and tone mapped in Photomatix

Thanks for looking.

A beauty of a shot. The HDR lends it that characteristic glow.

Love the light and detail you've achieved.
Somehow the 'simplicity' appeals.
Pleased I've been to Ely Cathedral, it's truly wonderful.

Nice shot Neil, but 2 little niggles. I think there's some space wasted at the bottom of the shot. A slight tilt up of the camera would lose that & give more view of the ceiling. Also a slight pan left or maybe move the camera slightly to include all of the plaque would improve the composition. The second point is that the main window is a bit flat & lifeless compared to the others. I find this happens with hdr when it's dull outside & no strong light shining through the window. If you patch in the window from one of the individual shots, it can often give it a boost. But, as I said, nice shot. Hope you don't mind the crit. Smile

The detail in the shot is without flaw Neil, it's been very well processed indeed. The composition of the shot would probably look good on say 'Ecclesiastical Monthly' front cover or something of that ilk, but I do have to agree with Rog somewhat in that there is a possibly little 'dead' fg and maybe a slight rotation left would've helped to sort it, but only if you could only retain the whole window. The people who built these never think of the photographer, do they!!!

That said, it's still a fine shot mate and I too think this is probably your most successfully processed HDR.

Enjoy the weekend mate,
Paul

Thanks for the comments all.

Thanks Rog and Paul for your feedback. I agree with you about getting all the plaque in but this is a creation of necessity. To get it all in I would have had to include the doorway to the lady chapel and this was both very light and cluttered with people so too much of a distraction. I waited for it to clear, but when that was clear the corridor was not.

As for the dead FG, I tried a few crops but the problem is that it is not a case of taking some off the bottom or off the side as it is the corner that is the problem. That being said I agree it is a bit dead. I should have perhaps tried filling with the title a bit higher to help a little or persuaded my son to stand there.

Thanks for the HDR feedback Paul. I thought so too, but just uploaded another one I am quite happy with.

Thanks again.

Hope you all had good ones.

Neil
