Thanks Graeme. I shot RAW, made two exposures, and combined them to get the proper range in the photo. One for the window, and one for the room. I put the 'room image' over the 'window image', created a mask and painted the properly exposed window back in.I like this Joshua............ the window looks like it has a halo around it!
Lots going on to hold your interest and I'm impressed you didn't blow thw light coming through the window.
