    Hi Simon,Very interesting image, some photographers don't like HDR. However, I'm impressed, could I please ask how you do your excellent work. All The Best TK

    Re: Work Horse
    Many thanks for your comments, TK - appreciated. I agree that not all photographers are keen on HDR, possibly because there are some rather extreme renderings of HDR out there (!) (which have their artistic merit, but not versions I particularly like!). For me it's a question of getting the balance right and I find HDR can, for example, really bring out the textures in churches/cathedrals and where old forms of transport are involved. Unlike many photographers, I don't use any filters on my lenses - my filter is the HDR software I use (Photomatix). I attempt to produce images which will provoke a response from the (non-HDR aware) viewer and often at my exhibitions or stalls at events they do just that - is it a painting or a photograph . . ? There are, of course, many, many more than excellent (non-HDR) photographers in the world - I just made a conscious decision to use HDR to give a further dimension to my photographic work . . .

    Hi Simon,Great I've got the right gear, I have a D600 just like you, I also have Photomatix Pro 4 and CS3. Therefore, would you be willing to help me, by giving me some tips/tutorials please. I have some good images of churches, 3 shots bracketed at exposure increments of +/- 2, I also set the ISO at 100. However, after editing they never look right. ATB TK

    Hi Simon.............Very well done! A great subject that you have captured and processed with great subtlety and balance. This in my opinion is how HDR should look. I sometimes use one of the bracketed RAW or Jpeg files as a layer mask for the sky, and reveal the amount of natural sky by using the erasor tool on CS3 But here I don't think it's necessary. ....Compliments! ............Alf
