Church interiors are difficult to photograph because they usually have huge bright windows and dark nooks and crannies with the rest being a mix of tones illuminated by tungsten light or candles.
Automatic exposure cameras will often deliver a photo with a well exposed interior, but no detail in the windows.
This is where 3 bracketed shots are then taken as already mentioned and merged in HDR program to give a finished picture showing all detail in the shadows, mid tones and highlights like the windows.
I could push my picture to give the same results as Harrys cathedral interior however it was not the look I was after in this particular picture.
Hope this explanation along with the previous ones helps.
