Dynamic Range - the decent exposure

Dynamic Range


If you are following the technical presentations about new cameras you will always hear and read about dynamic range. Why is it sometimes good to have a huge dynamic range? This is what I would like to show you in my example. Both results are out of the same RAW file, shot in a small church in Oxford. You can see that we have a lot of lights and shadows. Left is the raw results without any adjustments, right is the final result with only a few adjustments in Adobe Lightroom. This is possible without increasing the grain or creating banding.
