I took several HDR photos while I was in the Basilica of St. Mary in Minneapolis. The photo I posted a couple days ago was my attempt at a photo that shows the whole dynamic range of the Basilica from shadows to highlights.
Today’s attempt used the same software (Photomatix) but I’ve chosen the “Surreal” filter. Why? I don’t have a good answer except that it’s trendy right now. And, like other trendy things, it will no doubt look outdated and odd before long. Some will say that it does already. . .
