When I visited Europe many years ago, I was blown away by the remarkable beauty of their cathedrals. The outside of the churches were so meticulously detailed, while the paintings and sculptures made the inside seem like heaven. Below are some HDR enhanced photos by one of my favorite photographers, Trey Ratcliff.

  • HDR has nothing to do with "hi-def." It stands for High Dynamic Range photography. Stuck in Customs is one of my favorite photography sites.
  • Amazing. How does he get every nook and cranny ... ?
