Thank you for your comment, Nigel !
The flaws are in inherent part of the image :)
BTW - Where are they, that I can't see them ?*chr

The worn tiles, cracked and damaged plaster on the lower left side of your beautiful photo, is part of the history of the sacristy. Itís not a flaw, it adds to the image. Nice work.

Yes; that is what I meant, and was not in any way intended to be a criticism.

I presume you used HDR?

Thank you all for the comments. :)

A quick and modest description - perhaps a clumsy one - of my procedure when making stacked photographs. I do like the final result of most of the time. I always try to avoid a harsh HDR which I am not very found of.
Comments welcome. Thank you for your attention.

A - Settings in camera
My camera is so far, an Olympus 5 Mark II and I use this process mainly with the 7-14 (14-28mm FF) which for this purpose, I find a convenient choice.
The camera is set to Continuous Photo and the Exposure Bracketing set to 3, 5 or even 7 photographs depending on the scene.
I have tried once the ISO Bracketing along the Exposure Bracketing, but I have to try again. Hope to write about it later on.

B - Hand held photographs
I photograph most of the time without tripod. I hold my breath and try not to move while making the stacking. I am not very worried about a small movement in the scene or of myself.
As an example here are 5 photographs taken in RAW and with only one adjustment in LR

C - Exposure bracketing in Light Room
After importing the files in LR, I choose Control+H and let the program do it's job.

D - Final image
The 5 files are stacked. (on the right, the final one previously posted and at the left the new one)

E - Developing photograph
Now in the Develop mode, LR returns me a photographed automatically adjusted.

F - Time to play
Now it is time to play until I like the image.
