(My first HDR experiment)
I like how this effect brings out the detail of old settings, especially wood.
This is a combination of 4 shots taken with a Nikon D80, at 1 stop intervals, using a manfrotto tripod.

    Great first HDR shot. I just started shooting HDR and it can be tricky but addicting. I love how the wood grains turned out in this. Well done!

  • Thanks you very much Pam. I think that HDR is particularly suitable for warm wood and old architecture, so hopefully we’ll get some more good examples.
