No more HDR today, I'm still puzzled by the results and not sure I like the effect. So here we have a plain old normal photo - straight out from the camera with hardly any processing (just a bit of cropping to center the image and enhance the feel of symmetry).
How did I get the colours I hear you say? Well, actually, I didn't do anything special. All I did was go there in the late afternoon when the light is a bit warmer (more yellow). Because of the bright surface of the cathedral walls, the sky looks very dark in comparison. In fact, I was quite surprised that the contrast came out this well.
No touch up tricks on the computer needed at all. I'm beginning to wonder if HDR is worth all the hype when you can get this straight out of the camera. What do you think?
