This is an HDR shot of a walkway at the Fourth Presbyterian Church in Downtown Chicago. This landmark old greystone church sits right on the north edge of the Magnificent Mile shopping district. I have passed by this place many times, and have even been in the church a few times for concerts, but I have never explored the grounds before. The distortion on this shot was a bit unexpected but I liked it.

Mike, this one is a dynamite shot. Really has great impact, well composed, and exposure is very nice.

Wow that is very cool! Did you use a fisheye lense or whatever they are called?

You mean the distortion was not intentional? Well it works! And I think this is the first B&W HDR I've seen. Very nice.

This is the first application of HDR I have seen in a while that is actually just right and not overblown, overcolored and fake. This is what HDR is intended for and your photo is excellent, suble work of art.
