Since I knew the town square would be like a ghost town on a Holiday, I slipped on down and shot some HDR work. My typical HDR workflow is using my camera on Auto Bracket using 7 exposures 0.7eV apart (3 below metered, metered, and 3 above metered) handheld at ISO 1600 with the D700/MB10 using Continous Burst at 8fps. The images were tone-mapped in Photomatix 4.0 and later converted to B&W using Nik's Silver Efex Pro.

The result of the work shows a finely detailed image of the facade of the building with the structure standing out strongly set against the relative lightness of the cloudy sky. Enlarging the image really serves to enhance the detailing and contrast.

You definitely have mastered the HDR technique and thanks so much for sharing it in your notes. It looks like you have a slight lens distortion on the building as it appears to be leaning a bit. Another wonderful photographer on this site told me that it helps if you tip the camera down a bit when composing the shot. I have a much more exaggerated problem with my wide angle lens and the tipping has seemed to minimize the distortion for me.

Hi Gary

HDR is something I am dying to try, interesting that this is handheld, doesnt the slightest movement stuff things up with HDR as I thought you had to overlay the images. Love the detail here and the building litterly screams out of the frame. Lovely work and nice choice for black and white too. Yes this is absolutely on my to do list to try this year.

Thank you for posting and for adding in the work flow details too.

kind regards Helen
