I have been playing more with using HDR in situations where I normally would not, a few weeks ago I had a good opportunity with some mixed lighting in the morning. I originally tried this shot as HDR, but it just didn't look quite right. So I just went with a single exposure and got what I was looking for.
Both of these are HDR, I like them but I'm not super excited with the haloing I see around the temple. But with the building in shade and the sun lit, there was no other good way to get the lighting right. Believe me I tried!
