Seward's Study and the challenges of HDR

This image is a composite HDR taken from the Seward House in Auburn, New York. The kind people at the facility allowed me to shoot inside to gather material for a commercial renovation project at the Holiday Inn in town.

It was a tricky shot to composite. The sunlight coming in from the window and the incandescent light inside the room were of vastly different color temperatures. As usual, the results directly from HDR processing in the Photomatrix Pro program were a bit soft so layering and painting in Photoshop were necessary to get all the fine detail back. My other negative experience so far is that the blacks will block up coming out of PMP, and I have to do a bunch of processing on darker detail areas to make sure it won't come out in a print.
