Concord Baptist Church

I got to spend a little time this evening going through some more of the pictures that I took last weekend.  Many of the outdoors shots that I took, intending to process as HDR’s, aren’t working out so well since there was a good breeze while I was shooting and the bright green foilage produces lots of ghosting on the HDR image.  I’ll probably get some good single-image prints out of them, though.

Last Sunday morning, my brother Mark and I hung around after church services were over so I could get some shots of the church where I grew up and where my Dad still pastors.  I got just a few shots of the exterior before it started to pour down rain, and then I got some shots of the interior.  So far, this one is my favorite of the ones I’ve processed:

This is an HDR from three bracketed shots (-2.0/0.0/+2.0), tripod-mounted, processed through Photomatix and the post-processed in PaintShop Pro X3.  In Photomatix, I used the Detail Enhancement option, and also used the Medium light smoothing preset.  The image shown above is a reduced size…it looks much better in full size.  You can view the larger version on my Flicker site here.

I still have a lot more to go through, but I’m taking my time with them.  Want to make the memories last, you know.




    • Thanks, Courtney!! Glad you liked it! I have a couple more of the church that I haven’t processed yet, so stay tuned. I should have them posted in the next week or so. Love ya!
