Still Learning

Queen of Angels Church

So, I've been wanting to learn some new techniques and decided to start with High Dynamic Range (HDR). Above is my first, very first, did I mention first attempt at HDR photography. It is an interior shot of my Church. Achieved with 9 images at 1/3 stop increments.

My objective was not only to capture the image but also to make is natural looking without all the high contrast, extreme blacks and extreme saturation. I think I'm on the right track but still need to work on this a bit. I'm sure it will come in time.

Take a look and let me know what you think. Not a horrible start, but I have a long way to go.
