Great subject Steve, lovely decor & details in the room, just a shame on the perspective from the wide angle lens......How are you finding the EOS R.

I am not a Fan of the Fish Eye look but this One is an exception for me as the end of the tables do not bend and slight curvature of the walls it gives the illusion of a Round or Domed room.Clarity and Detail make this one POP Steve. I envy your processing talents.

I forgot to check out the NON Version ahead of commenting before. The cropping and removing of the other Chandeliers vastly improves the image and helps flatten the image out as well. Great Work!

@inkslinger_ii I used an 11-24 on the full frame so had to do a lot of perspective correction and still had to crop out a lot. I could have used a ladder and shot at 12 feet plus and it could have worked better. Regarding the R camera, I really like it. I do mostly landscapes but definitely mostly tripod work. The detail and res is awesome with it but the hdr files can be huge. It is not a good lowlight camera though but since I use the tripod I just do long shots and that is workable. The color hue range is a little less than some if the larger pixel sensors. However I do a lot of hdr with the 32 bit radiance rgbe file at the pretonemapping point of Photomatix. There are a couple of tricks with it but if it is a real keeper it is worth using it in spite of some of the extra steps. I use a ton of layers and brushes but the time is worth it on special images. A real awesome way of upping the res is to oversize 2-4 times with Topaz Gigapixel then resize to the desired final size. It’s remarkable how that works.
