Saint John the Divine Alter During Christmas Season
I took this photo of the alter during the Christmas season of 2011. I shot this with a wide angle lens (16 mm) about 12 inches off the ground. This photo was spliced together from two HDR versions, a top part and lower part of the alter. Both versions were in HDR from three exposures (-2,0,2) ranging from 1.3 seconds to 20 seconds. The correctly exposed photo had stained glass widows that were substantially underexposed and clipped. The widows looked great in the underexposed version, but other areas were too dark. The HDR version did a nice job of sampling the best parts from the under and overexposed photos. I did additional work in Photoshop elements to bring out detail from the three versions.
