Thanks to Dave for the title. Yes it is tonemapped, some people love it some folk hate it but here it is, I have tried to keep away from HDR and learn more 'traditional' styles of editing but have decided that I personally enjoy working with HDR and so shall stick with it. This image has been brutally thrashed with photomatix plug-in because I needed a BIG HIT of it LOL. the future shots will be more calm I assure you. Anyway, here it is, I love it, It's our local church as seen across the river with the new fountain.

est score 5.8
dream score 4.3

Love the processing on this one! I love HDR processing but my PS is too old to do it."future shots will be more calm I assure you" dont do that! make the "shock" factor work for you like you did here...its wonderful!

I didnt get to vote on this but I think it looks great. I have tried some hdr but I cant get this effect, I am baffled.

I don't even know what to write about this - it's so GREAT! I just wish the pole wasn't there on the right, but that's not your fault. 10

Like the “fantasy” look – one of the best images in the challenge.

PP seems a bit too much. Interesting subject though.

It's a beautiful, moody photo. I don't usualy like heavy post processing, but this one works for me.

Excellent. Very nice photo.

Overprocessed for my taste. I'd find it more beautiful if it were more natural.

Really nice composition, great light and colours. The extreme processing is the only thing which keeps this from being my first 10.

This is amazing. It almost looks fake though after the intense post processing.. still well worthy of an 8. Nicely done.

Great shot. I love the way you've brought out the colour but left a dark gothic feel about it, perfect for the church. One of those photos that could feel over processed but doesn't, despite the HDR feel. Great shot - passes the 'I'd hang this on my wall' test :)

Funny, from the thumb, the water fountain looks like a woman in a white gown. Hmmm - maybe it's a poltergeist. ;~D Good luck, Mate!!!! It's a stunning shot. The editing and comp - SPOT ON.

Yes, the whole scene looks holey. Nicely done.

Wow, this is surreal!!

A little too much dodging and burning IMO but I think it works with this photo. It gives it a really dark stormy feel. Nice
