HDR Exeter Cathedral - After Monet - Rouen Cathedral by 

HDR Experiment only…to see how much light and colour can be implimented into a standard lit object…

This was produced in isolation before my RB membership began, and long before I heard of the term “HDR”.

All the light and colour was incorporated by Hue Saturation controls using three or four layers and erasing details for the shadows by hand… no extra drawing was done…this image uses only the original information in the original photograph.


My work is eclectic, pychological and profound and hopefully, attractive and beautiful for hanging on your wall… or sticking on your iPhone as a case… enjoy!

    Simon, this is a wonderful demonstration of what you can do with light! Amazing work my dear friend!

  • Robin thank you very much, this is in some ways where my digital art really took off…I achieved what I wanted with this piece (which back then surprized me…) and so after this I thought almost anything was possible…just a matter of finding the right technique!
