One of the most difficult in my HDR, is the Interior shot just like the one above. It might look simple but when you take shots and merge them and begin your post processing you will realize its a big task upfront. There will be lot of color shifts due to different light scenario and then you need to merge with another exposure shot to get the right blended shot.
As you might have seen that i don’t have any particular and daily workflow as it varies from subject to subject. For this image particularly i wanted something more spectacular making the viewers feel for this place. The above picture is a combination of HDR and Blending with two pictures for window natural light and for the lights above the table.
