About the Image(s)

This was shot last month at Historical St Patrick Church, In Toledo Ohio. A very large church, with special alters for Police and Fire departments. Some of the fixtures are solid gold. This image was shot in the early afternoon. With most of the light coming form the window near the upper left corner from an angle. I originally exposed for the shadows, and let the highlights be addressed through the HDR process. Nikon D750 ISO 200, 24 mm 1.4, f11 @1sec, (+/-5), processed in Photomatix 6.0

Oh my, what a beautiful church. You have captured this perfectly Ron. It's sharp and crisp throughout and the colours are perfect. The soft dappled light coming from the left to light up the beautiful paintings is perfect. Thanks for the extra images to show your workflow. Well done!   Posted: 07/10/2021 23:40:34

So many sharp and colorful details in this beautiful church, including the texture in the wood of the pews. The lighting seems just right. Interesting to see the originals before the finished image. Very well done!   Posted: 07/17/2021 18:00:53

What a beautiful shot, with great color and exposure.
I hope I am not repeating a suggestion I have given before. When there is limited space to capture an image of such an interior, you can flip and double the image to give an idea of the entire space. Of course there are limitations with perspective and, in this case with obviously duplicating the paintings on the wall.   Posted: 07/19/2021 22:35:58

Ron, I really like this image. Great detail and amazing HDR to bring out all the areas of the church. Stephen's idea I've never heard before but it certainly is clever and looks good.   Posted: 07/27/2021 07:10:12

Another well done HDR. You continue to do a good job at those. My only nitpick is I wish the arced ceiling on the right edge wasn't cut off. There is so much detail in the church I imagine you could have shot the whole day there!   Posted: 07/28/2021 07:39:07
