Same Building, Different Techniques

Both of these shots are of Trinity Church in Boston.  The first in infrared and the second in HDR.  Both shots done within a few minutes of each other, but with very different look and impact.  I think the infrared gives a timeless sense to the scene with just a hint of the current day by the context of the surrounding buildings.  The HDR version appears magical with the reflection of sky in the windows giving it a semi-transparent look.  The HDR is shot with a wide angle lens, so the buildings beside it appear to be curving inward.  Also note how the clouds and sky look different in the two shots.
