BTW, awesome shots with lots of detail. Love the panorama's also.
No HDR, those are straight raw out the camera. There is no PS coloring or contrasting either. Screen shot was captured with lights off with camera on a tripod then composited over the theater shot with the lights on with tripod in same position. That camera and lens combo is quite nice. I previously was using the Rebel XTi and This camera is night and day in comparison. The 40D is very comparable to Canons full frame cameras in many cases people favor the 40D over the full frame 5D.
The lighting took a bit of tweaking to get a decent balance. I am still not happy with some of the upper columns getting blown out or the corner of the rear right chair but I wanted to keep the lighting theme of the theater true to what it actually is.
I included the shot info below of the first picture I posted (since I know you like that stuff) ;->.
