This was taken for a church catalogue / record, so taken for a specific reason rather than out of choice. I've uploaded it because it was a technical challenge I hope I have overcome. I wanted to produce an image that looked natural and included the detail in the glass as well as the stone work. This included more than 10 stops of light. I ended up taking and blending 5 shots at f16 and .8s .2s 1/20s 1/80s and 1/320s.


I'd be interested to know if the hdr work has produced a natural image.

I think you've handled the image superbly, seems sharp and the colours are clear.

Stained glass windows are easy to shoot but notoriously difficult to get right as reels of 35mm films in my attic will confirm. This is good and the Church concerned should be well pleased.

That's wonderful. Lovely exposure everywhere including on the stonework. Beautiful coloured rays of light too. A lot of the time HDR pieces look a lot paler that they seem to warrant, so that they end up looking like drawings in pen and ink with washes of watercolour. Sometimes it suits the subject but often it gets in the way of the image. This doesn't look unrealistic at all. I think this works a treat.

I just love stained glass and its effects.

Thanks for all the comments. Sorry for not replying sooner - been offline. I'm glad my efforts paid off. The images have now been delivered and the church is very happy with the results.

I think your HDR technique has produced a very realistic image.
