Well you didn't lurk for long, I can't comment on HDR, no experience, however on my albeit uncalibrated monitor that I use for the internet, the shadows could do with being raised a little in value, only a little, but that would be my approach if it were my photograph.
The shadows look fine on my monitor and the processing is not overcooked. I wonder about the purple tones which look a little unnatural to my eye. The area through the window is badly blown and I'd hope to capture more detail in HDR.
Thanks Bill. I too am a little puzzled by the purple - although to be fair the stone does have that tinge to it. I don't think I underexposed in my range to give enough detail through the window, and I was very wary about overdoing the processing.
Good shadow detail. Window highlights are blown a bit. I’m not seeing any real strange purple color to speak of. My feeling about the image is that is doesn’t have that HDR look which is a compliment.
I have to offer you an apology, it's now dark outside, the curtains are drawn and there is a low level of illumination in the room, shadows are now just about perfect as indeed is the whole photograph. I also am not seeing the purple hue mentioned by others above, but then I do have some blue/green colour blindness, don't know if that affects my judgment in that region.
