Chapel of the Holy Dove – Interior Details in HDR

Tonight I’m wrapping up the series of HDR images from the Chapel of the Holy Dove near Flagstaff, Arizona.

This first image is a shot taken from the front of the Chapel looking back toward the door.  The big glass window was to my back, so there was a lot of natural light inside the building (be sure to click on the images to view them larger on black):

The image shows how the interior of the building feels so much larger from the inside than it looks on the outside. The high peak of the A-frame building lends a feeling of openness to the space that mirrors the openness of the landscape outside the window.

These next images show some of the finer details of things found inside the Chapel:

As with the earlier images in the series, these are all HDR’s created in Photomatix V4.0 from three bracketed images (-2.0/0.0/+2.0). HDR’s were post-processed in Topaz Adjust and Paintshop Pro X3 to adjust contrast, curves, saturation, and anything else that caught my eye.

If you’re just now joining me for this series, I hope you’ll visit my Flickr site to see the entire set of ten images, and that you’ll check out the previous postings of the past few days for more information about the Chapel and the images that I’ve posted.
