Hi Shell, thanks for the comment; I'm pretty chuffed with this one as it had to be done quickly as I was blocking an aisle.

I love the way you have altered this photo, I like to take shots inside churches and usualy find them rather dark so the lighting is quite difficult to get right. You have done a great job with this photo, the details are clear and sharp.Well doneGrin

Much obliged Jackie. I think I'll have a word with the Vicar at the church I was married in to see if I can get access to get some HDR shots in there next.

Fantastic shot mate, i'm getting into these hdr church shots too.
Can i ask how do you get an 8 plus exposure? i have a setting on my camera for taking multiple exposures but it only allows me to take 3 shots. Is it a case of taking 3 then readjusting and doing the same again?
Great work.

Rick - I just take a spot reading from the lightest and darkest areas of the subject first. Second stage is to start at either the highest or lowest reading and in 1 stop increments I work to the other reading. Normally I end up with 8-10 images with this method and then I use Photomatix to turn the images into 1 HDR image. Hope that help mate Smile
