    Sorry for the quality of the shots.

    This was a pretty dark barn, with splashes of sunlight - seemed to me to be a perfect situation to use the 400% HDR option - so I did.
    I also shot a RAW file.

    Here are the results - I spent 30 seconds adjusting the shadow and highlight detail on the RAW file: You can see that the HDR jpg (first shot) has done a grand job of recovering the highlights (better, perhaps than the RAW file)

    But the beams are horrible in the HDR shot - lots of false noise and that nasty brown look.

    Of course, had it been worth it, one could have spent more time with the RAW file to improve things further (or done some exposure overlays).

    all the best
