    Very nice Sir.
    I've been once in the dark, that's inside not outside :rolleyes:
    I aim to go again.

    These are fabulous. Can I ask, did you do much p.p. on these? How close to that light and colour can I expect to get just from the camera?
    Thanks

    A reasonable bit of work - the lighting in Ely is pretty challenging with lots of bright natural light mixed with dark shadows - this is where HDR can help, or exposure blending.

    All of the shots here are multiple (at least 3 with the B+W one being 9 shots) These were passed through Photomatix in either tone mapping / detail enhancer or exposure blending ...

    Finally some small tweaks in photoshop and Aperture ...

    Thanks for that. I must admit, when I first read your reply I thought "that's waay beyond me." I didn't even know what HDR meant.
    I've found this little beginners tutorial » HDR Tutorial with examples by Dan Norcott
    which has helped. Even had a go, just with boring household stuff so far, but wow what potential.
    Thanks again for helping me learn something else.:smashin:

    Like the bat cave :smashin: HDR works well here and as you say allows for a nice combo exposure.
