Some of them are pretty impressive but there's one (a cathedral?) that looks more like a drawing/cartoon than a photo!

I know this method of photography involves taking multiple photos at different exposures then stitching them together but what software do you use? And would this work for me for improving room photos - the bane of my photography existence. If I take a photo on a sunny day the window is a white out, on a cloudy day the room looks dull and flash just gives horrible shadows.

The one that looks like a drawing is using a Grunge effect, basically, over processing it. They can be made to look very natural or like the one you are talking about.

Not sure if they will help with what you are after. The software that I use is PhotoMatrix (http://www.hdrsoft.com/). If you want to take a few shots I can see what I can do with them if you want. Best if they are taken in RAW format as I will be able to play with them a bit more.

Hi Stu, it will help with getting the overall exposure on the final photo more balanced and should mean that you can still see the full details of the room with the correct view out of the window.

I've been using HDR a lot as well De Mote and am really enjoying the results. Photomatix is my software of choice too and seems to do a very good job.

I've been using it when I go urbexing (skulking in old abandoned buildings) where the light is not always that bright, especially in stairways, and you get a really good balanced exposure of the interior of the room with the view from the window perfectly exposed too.

Here is a fairly recent effort at the location of an old chemical works at sunset
