Back to my old ways, Temple Photos!

I was very bummed to have missed some incredible sunrises the last few days, determining to NOT miss them this day I got up a bit early and swung my the Oquirrh Mountain Temple on my way to work. While I did't get as awesome of a sunrise as I had the last two days, I did get some shots I like. These are all HDR and played with a bit in Photoshop... why not?

The first one is the most straightforward shot. 6 closely bracketed shots... well a set of three at -2, 0, +2 and another set biased a 1/2 stop darker and then again shot at -2, 0, +2 and all bunged together in Photomatix. Slight levels/brightness/contrast/unsharp mask bumping, and correction of perspective and here ya go:

I can't even begin to remember everything I did to this, the B&W conversion was done in Photomatix, multiple layers of light gaussian blur masked to fix a few things, strong vignette, leveling perspective correction....

These are a bit more straight ouf of Photomatix, with less correction, not sure if I like these better then the first, may need to play more with these bad boys!

Which do you like more?
