It is photos like this that make HDR a favorite of mine. There are certain subject like interiors of Cathedrals/Churches that make HDR’s stand out. I know there are HDR nay-sayers, but how can you dislike what HDR does to a scene like this?
Grace Cathedral is a lovely small Cathedral that sits above Nob Hill in San Francisco. I had about an hour here and took quiet a few shots. This one became an instant favorite of mine! I took a few straight on fisheye’s and liked em, then this one popped out and the angle creates a wonderful feeling! What is great about this Cathedral is that I had my tripod all over the place and not one person asked me not to use it! So I snapped away! I am not sure of the history of Cathedrals, but there are quite a few I have seen that look very similar from the outside. Notre Dame, San Fernando, Grace Cathedral and I am sure many more! I’ll post this outside view soon!
