    Beautiful lighting and tones , my HDR shots turned out alot less natural in the Vatican / Basilica :(

  • Thanks Roddy, sorry to hear about your HDRs; which software did you use if any?

    Beautiful! This is the way HDR was meant to be used!

  • Thank you Katya, I agree with you, I try as much as possible to get the “real” look, and not the “cartoon” one like that can be seen in many HDR work.

    great shot christophe and i assume handheld ?

  • Thanks Philip, No, I actually used a $19 table tripod (Ultrapod II) ! Regular tripod can’t be used in most church or museum.
