A little under exposed perhaps but brightening it up would cause the sky to lose all detail.
Patterson Library - Westfield N.Y. - Processed in Lightroom 3
This image was developed in Lightroom 3. We have a more interesting image, not as flat, more contrast, more pop in the colors, more detail in the sky, and just more interesting to look at.
Patterson Library - garden view HDR
This image is a 3 frame HDR. Starting with a normal exposure, +1stop and a -2stop to get more blue in the sky. The image also received some adjustment brush work in Lightroom 3 to light up the flowers, the building and the fence structure along with the bench.
