Casa Loma, Toronto. HDR followed by PS post-processing. Interiors are something new for me as well as HDR.
This is actually LDR (low dynamic range), i.e. all of the dynamic range squeezed into the middle to remove dark shadows.
I guess that's because I was trying to preserve the natural lighting conditions of the room while trying to show some of the details lost in the shadows.
Fair enough, I was merely drawing the attention to the difference between LDR and HDR. Nothing wrong with the photo.
I didn't take it negatively, just related it to my motivation. I'm still trying to understand the concept of HDR photography. From what I understand it's approximating a high-dynamic range (through multiple exposures) and then projecting it into a more limited range that's available in a file format, to make a single photo. In which case wouldn't all HDR photography be called LDR? I tried to look up LDR photography and I'm not sure this photo qualifies in that category. Other than maybe because I tried to keep it more natural-looking instead of hyper-realistic like a lot of HDR photos are. It's true that the shadows and highlights are closer together in their intensity in some areas of the photo. But for example the roof doesn't have that and the sky-light would've been overblown normally, but thanks to the HDR technique you can see the details and colors of the stained glass.
Wow! That is really well done. Nice job, Kirill.
