Unorthodox Religion, another Kiev cathedral captured in HDR

Here is a good church picture for Sunday in the bible belt.

I am not sure how people were able to photograph the interior of churches before the HDR technique came along. Well, actually I do – since I used to do it too, but now I am ashamed of all my old pictures. There is no other way, in my opinion, to capture the richness, details, and colors of these massive works of art.

You can see a heiromonk there on the right in his morning ghostly ritual.

And here is another picture from a nearby cathedral with yet another heiromonk. Those guys are hard to capture steady… it’s a bit like catching a snipe back on camping trips when I was a kid.

    trey, your cathedrals shots are awesome!
    do the heiromonk never complaint about you setting your tripod and taking the pics?
    btw, loved your tutorial

  • No they did not complain. I received special permission and carried around a little permission note with me that was scrawled in some sort of Cyrillic codex.

  • The first photo is simply amazing. Well done!
