Templar Church London Panorama (High Dynamic Range)

Templar Church, located off Fleet Street in London is so called as it was built by the Knights Templar, the order of crusading monks founded to protect pilgrims on their way to and from Jerusalem in the 12th century. Templar Church was consecrated in 1185 to as the Templar's headquarters in London and was built in the image of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem.

Sadly we were not allowed to photograph inside the church as there need to 'protect their commercial rights'. We fully understand this of course, its interesting that as soon as a photograph becomes a panorama it becomes increasingly difficult to get permission.

As a final note this is another High Definition Range (HDR) Panorama, HDR is a useful technique for areas of shade and light contrasts but in general daylight we are not sure it works. The panorama, which you can view below, is nicely lit but HDR, through Tone Mapping, seems to give the shots a slight 'fake' look. The jury on this is out at the moment, I guess its a personal preference....
