Chester Cathedral Ceiling (13x exposure HDR) - The South Transept

After trying DSLRController app out for the first time a few weeks ago when I captured this shot of the main Chester Cathedral ceiling I managed to pop out last night just before they where closing to have another go, this time trying to do the same with the ceiling of The South Transept.


The shot here was actually a 13 exposure HDR image with the camera set to RAW, f5.6, ISO 100 and the bracketed shots went from 1/500sec (-6 EV) to 8 seconds (+6 EV). For this shot I did actually shoot at 17x frames but didn't include as many of the underexposed images as I discovered I was starting to get alot of noise around the dark areas of the image and upon checking the histogram for these images it turns out that there was no real data in the dark part for these exposures. I've almost concluded now that its best to shoot in the maximum frames available and then check the histogram for each frame afterwards to see if theres image detail in that frame and if there is then i include it when processing. The resultant images where imported into Lightroom and then exported to Photomatix to generate the HDR.
