Gent has been the 'victim' of renovation and reconstruction for a long period of time. I was looking for some quiet spots around town and ended up in the backyard of a cathedral.

Shot is taken with a 10-20mm wide angle lens, hence the distortion, which I often I leave on purpose, for a more dramatic angle.

I've never been a big fan of HDR (especially the "in-your-face" type of HDR with exaggerated colours and contrasts), but I was curious and wanted to try it out myself. This is one of my very first HDR attempts.

    As you, I am no fan of the over-done HDR, however, this is very appealing. It is amazingly impressive as you first try at HDR. I love the distortion in this one as well. The tree (similar to three of Joshua symbolized on a U2 cover) --is in excellent view. Lastly, thank you for giving some details of your gear used, settings etc. I full exif on photos would be great -- not sure how many people care, but as a photographer, I do :-) Thanks for sharing.

    HDR is a good technique if the result is kept as natural looking as possible. I have found getting good results with 5 to 6 frames than 3 frames which I have trying after following some work style of a few photogs. I am reverting back to 5 to 6 frames as I have found this technique very helpful in my commercial work like interiors and industry shoots. one can see some samples in my website indergopal.com location shoot of a hotel interiors.
