Boston, Massachusetts, October 2012
(6-shot HDR, Merged in Photomatix Pro, Edited in Photomatix Pro, Lightroom 4, and CS6)
Wow! Such a stunning image Lisa! I’m not a great fan of HDR as I think many people over do it but this is brilliant!!
I might have to look into it some more. If you can point me in the right direction of good websites which explain how to do this I would be very appreciative!
This is THE MOST BEAUTIFUL HDR shot Ive ever seen. So many of them are too tonally intense and overdone or too commercial looking.
THIS is ethereal, delicate, and seems to radiate light…a really beautiful image.
Nice job, Lisa. Have a nice week!!
This one, Lisa,- is just FANTASTIC! Wonderful HDR and amazing church!
Have a nice evening:)
Wow, such a stunning result. Love the tones and coolness of the image.
what a brilliant HDR, and photo all in all!

This Church has been photgraphed so many times, it was hard to imagine that such a stunning shot could amaze its viewers. Thank you.
A great hdr there Lisa, I love how the blues come to the fore, the water (?) in the foreground looks surreal too!
I think it’s all been said, but I’d like to add my WOW!
A truly magical scene.
So nice this building and the pic too! ciao Lisa!
The mix of blues and neutral colors is quite magical.
The Christian Science Building has never looked so beautiful. You’ve brought out all it’s wonderful detail here. Magical!
Wow – what a gorgeous shot!
Wow! This photo is amazing! Well done, Lisa!
but… is fantastic!!!!
un caro saluto

What a stunning building!
I thought you had taken this shot in Europe.
This is breathtaking Lisa.
You are a great photografer.
The light and colour are so nice.
Wish you a great week.

Wow Lisa! I must have missed when you decided to master HDR too… great job!
What a stunning piece of architecture. The color is fabulous! It’s simply gorgeous in every way.
i haven’t been on your blog for a while, I don’t know why but seeing it again made me completely in awe of your photography again! wow these images are truly amazing.
This photo is amazing Lisa! The architecture is so stunning. The structure looks like something that belongs in Europe which I love!!!
A stunning church and an amazing photo -a wonderful example of HDR
A beautiful HDR Lisa, I love how you processed this image, it’s not too much, it’s just perfect !
oh wow. just wow. what a splendid shot.
WoW, gorgeous lisa, that’s art!!
Stunning work Lisa!!!
this is an awesome photo and the HDR really lends itself well in this subject!
I’ve got to try HDR photography…you did this beautifully, some shots look too surreal for my taste. Now I need to find my hidden tripod. (o:
I’m not big into HDR (seen too many “over HDR-ed” images to turn me off of them), but this one may have just won me over. This is beautiful, Lisa—it looks like a painting!
WOW!! What a wonderful photo.. you truly are a fabulous photographer. I really do enjoy seeing your photos.

Of course I’ve never been to Boston, but I am surprised to learn that this particular architectural structure is there! When I saw the image on FB, I thought it was located in Europe or somewhere!
Wow, truly a great HDR. I like how it is not overly done. It is such a great photo Lisa.
wow!!! fantastic!! great work, Lisa!
Lisa, this is breathtaking. The light, colors, and reflection are pure and beautiful.
Gorgeous light, gorgeous HDR!! Great job!
The blue on the roofs against the blue of the sky…awesome. That is one elaborate church! I often don’t like HDR but this is so subtle and well-done I love it.
Good heavens, this is gorgeous, Lisa! The details pop right out.
Wonderful use of HDR, Lisa – phenomenal detail (and love the symmetry).

This is lovely, Lisa!

Wow! What a wonderful job you’ve done, Lisa! Bravo!!
What amazing amount of detail one can get in HDR. Very eye-catching capture and architecture!
Hope your week is wonderful
Lisa, I love seeing you experiment in different ways to show off your stellar photography. This is amazing! I’ve seen some HDR that looks too unreal, but this is an example of how it should be done. Bravo, dear girl, brav-O!

I LOVE this photograph Lisa. It almost looks surreal- seriously gorgeous.
ps. thank you for adding gnom-gnom to your blog roll! It meant a lot!
Wow! Lisa! Amazing! I love the tone – the silvers and blue and the light and the line and texture. Such a compelling image. Beautiful!
What a wonderful job you’ve done here, Lisa! This image looks almost three dimensional. The architectural details are very defined and clear.
really well done! 6 shots! wow!
Hi Lisa, I don’t know what HDR is! Have you stuck one building in front of another or are they really that close! What different styles! I prefer the building in the back with the beautiful dome against the sky.
Are those people paddling in the water? I hardly think so! It seems there are three photos in one – or maybe I’m mistaken as everyone else seems to know what you’re talking about!
Have a lovely start to your week!
In short, HDR (High Dynamic Range) is the process of taking several images of the same subject at different exposures, and then merging them in an attempt to bring out the best tones/colors (dynamic range) in your photograph. This is just one building (not separate ones).
The people are not actually in the water. There is a reflecting pond in front of the church, and those people are walking along the edge of it.
Such a cool effect Lisas
Love your artistic processing of this! Very cool image…another framer! I think you should use my wall when you run out of room on yours!
Awesome photo Lisa. I love the processing.
dramatic … perfect for this subject .. makes it very other worldly
Simply WOW. I haven’t done any HDR but I remember comparing it to an etching. This is spectacular.
Such a wonderful building, so beautifully rendered! Your work here is fantastic, Lisa!
Wow! Fabulous. I saw a HDR photo for the first time.
I wish you spend a wonderful week.
Lisa, this is by far the lovliest HDR work I’ve seen. What an impressive building too!
Wow, what an amazing shot. Beautifully done.
WOW……..THATS BEAUTIFUL LISA….. my COMPLIMENTS FOR THIS WORK.
Wow Lisa, this is an amazing shot. Such a huge building- and you’ve done such a great job with it.
I love GOOD HDR – and this definitely fits that description!
