Subject is the Teylers museum in Haarlem the Netherlands !

The Teyler Museum (or Teyler's Museum; Teylers Museum in Dutch), located in Haarlem, is the oldest museum in the Netherlands. The museum is in the former home of Pieter Teyler van der Hulst (1702–1778). He was a wealthy cloth merchant and Amsterdam banker of Scottish descent, who bequeathed his fortune for the advancement of art and science. He was a Mennonite and follower of the Scottish Enlightenment. Nearby the museum is the Teylers Hofje, a hofje which was also founded in Teyler's name.

The Teyler legacy to the city of Haarlem was split into three societies, one for religion, one for science, and one for the arts, known as the first, second, and third societies. The caretakers had to meet in Teyler's home weekly, and each society had five caretakers, so all of the gentlemen involved lived in Haarlem. Until his death, Teyler held weekly meetings in his home for the Mennonite community and the men's drawing school Haarlemse Teekenacademie. The drawing school moved after his death to a new location, to make room for the second society, called Teylers Physische en Naturalien Kabinetten en Bibliotheek, under the direction of Martin van Marum.

The Teyler's Museum displays an eclectic collection of fossils (among which the first ever discovered, if not recognised, of Archaeopteryx), minerals, scientific instruments, medals, coins, and paintings. It is most famous for its extensive collection of old master's prints and drawings, including several works by Michelangelo and Rembrandt. The various objects reflect the interests of 18th century wealthy men like Pieter Teyler who kept 'rariteiten kabinetten' or curiosity cabinets. The main building is built partially in and behind Teyler's former home, on his garden or 'hortus'. Behind the house, the Oval Room was built in 1784 by the architect Leendert Viervant (1752–1801). The same architect drew the plans for the hofje. The current main entrance on the Spaarne was not added until 1878 and was designed by the Viennese architect Christian Ulrich who won the design contest for a new annex, including the entrance hall and auditorium

I will try as well ..... I did one time, but then the noise was not so nice that came in the photo's while the original photo's didn't show that. Well, I think i make something wrong ....

Best is to shoot in RAW tranfer the 3 images into Tiff files (about 60Mb) before matching the 3 layer (or more) , so after tonemapping you will have a huge file, but it will be easier to get rid of the exces noise before turning it into JPG !

further it is important that the ISO is low (ISO 100) , and make it fixed value, so no AUTO ISO while shooting HDR'S, variable ISO in 3 shots will deliver a lot of noise when merging the files !!

O and the best for merging HDR files and tone mapping is Mediachance !!

The American magazine photography, gave it a POP award for HDR in 2008 !!
(POP = Photography Outstanding Product )

And i prefer it a lot more than CS3 !! (which i don't use anymore)[link] and only 43 euro !!

Hey Len,

Thanks for the good advice. I take a look immediately.
I also did read sometimes Photomatix, if I remember right.

I did never hear about Mediachance.

Did check in the mean time ... the interface looks great and I also just read about the POP.

Thanks again.. was very valuable info ...

Greets, Alwin

Used photomatix only shortly, but didn't like the interface !!

the pleasure of Mediachance is in its simplicity !!

a colleque who has cs4, also says he rather use Mediachance now, its simple and aesy to use , low learning curve , and low cost !!
