Adventures in HDR (kind of)

Here's another shot from the wedding I was working last weekend.  This is the Chapel at Ravella in Lake Las Vegas.  The lighting was a bit of a challenge with the large windows in the front of the chapel providing ample amount of backlighting and the limited overall lighting provided by the chandeliers.  A few tweaks in Lightroom on a virtual copy of the properly exposed foreground photo provided me with a nicely exposed window, which I painted in using a layer mask in Photoshop.  Using the HDR toning option in Photoshop provided me with the photo below, which is almost a perfect render of what the scene actually looked like.
