    The etching in the glass was hard to see in any photos i had taken. My goal was to bring it out. Not sure of any other way i could have.

    Great architecture, a real find. I agree that the image appears very soft - or slightly out of focus, and it is not really HDR - the dynamic range is no greater than what one can produce from a single exposure. The etching in the glass would be difficult to display, consider restricting whatever special editing techniques are necessary to just that pane of glass.

    Etching or not, unfortunately nothing in the shot appears to be in focus, either due to too slow a shutter speed or camera shake as you took the shot. Did you use a tripod and what were your settings

    Also as said does not look HDR - which requires at least 3 images blended using special software

    I used a single shot. And yes, i know...i know.
    I went overboard; original shot is in "focus."

    Pretty tough image to do anything with. For me the benches and foreground don't ad anything to the image. I'd move up closer if you were trying to get the etching. Something along these lines.

    The image is there if done right. Probably if we had the original, it work better.

    Well, that explains a lot. Your too far away to bring out the etching and the sky is over exposed for that. A polarizer filter would help a lot.

    Also, it is not an either/or for which photo to use. For HDR you could use both. One properly exposed for the interior and one properly exposed for the exterior - it is how our eyes adjust to view the scene. While this is poorly executed, using the original files would produce a much better end result. Because of the huge dynamic range involved, I probably would have bracketed 5 photos to use for the end product. making sure that all of the blond wood looked its natural color.
