I Like it John lots of detail the organ pipes I like particularly, considering the light from the windows and the large spotlight you have retained the detail in the shadows all your editing has worked well.
Well seen taken and edited

Hmmmm, I usually like HDR but this one...... not really Jeffrey, sorry.
It is a great scene with loads to look at and admire, and great depth that may work better for me as a standard edit.
Just me though, nice try.

I don't know a great deal about HDR, but I think you have captured a good shot showing plenty of details & colours in the stonework & the organ with the yellow pipes stands out well against the dark pattern.

Thanks for comments, and now that I take another look I agree with George the colour is just too vivid, I have done a simple re-edit i.e reduced saturation. I think it is now nearer the true colours, but I still stand by my decision of the five original shots because of the varied light situation.

Yes more to my liking now Jeffrey, well done with this edit, like it.

An excellent shot (I didn't see the original) nicely corrected verticals with my only pick being then spotlights and the burnt out window. Eliminating those would have involved lots of time and discussion with the powers that be and waiting for suitable weather to arrive. So well done with what you have under the circumstances.

I missed the first posting and was wondering why George was not keen on it originally. It's a shame about the lights but I'm doing my best to ignore that. I find the pipes on the organ fascinating; I've never seen decorated pipes before and I also like the tall pointy thing stood on the four pillars towards the bottom right. All in all, it is vey impressive.
