Being in the fortunate possession of a few lovely days of sunshine and no work, I decided to head to the British Museum and experiment a bit more with high dynamic range imaging (a.k.a. HDR).

As with a number of non-standard photographic techniques, it's easy to abuse or overuse them, and places like Flickr are full of HDR shots that look like something out of an acid trip; strange colours, strange light balance between the foreground and background.

I was trying not to do that, but rather to give an impression of the scene as it appeared to my eye (as opposed to the camera!)

The rest of the pictures can be found at this location.

What tools do you use to perform the image merging?

Photomatix Pro for the merge; also did a little tidying (aligning verticals, cropping, sharpening) with Gimp.

Those are fantastic shots. They look very natural, and the focus is spot on.

Now we just have to get you to Iceland.

These are splendid - I especially like the green cat and the one with the gold statue - it looks as if the visitors reading the plaque are bowing in homage...

My husband is a keen photographer so I've sent him the link to your page - I hoope you don't mind.

None of your photos scream HDR, so I'd say they're successful. I'd love to see a mid-range flat image in comparison. Also, what range did you use for HDR?
