So I'm kinda on a Thai wats with sunbursts kick these days. Basically, I go to the dark side of a chedi, find a balance between light, dark, and the sunburst, and snap the shot in RAW.

Later, in Photoshop, I can bring up the dark areas and create something unique without resorting to hdr.

This shot of Wat Phra Singh in Chiang Mai, Thailand, may be my favorite yet. It was taken at 10:51am with a 10.5mm fisheye lens.
