Neighborhood Funeral Home, Little Italy, Chicago

HDR Hand Held, three bursts bracketing, I did this three times in hopes I would get one of the three segments to align. Best to use tripod.

Camera Canon 5D Mark II, Canon Lens 24-70 mm f/2.8L USM (my favorite lens), exposure @ aperture priority set at f 2.8, shutter speed at 1/1250, 1/2500, 1/5000

Opened Raw photos in RAW & make some minor adjustments. Half the time I work in LighRoom 2 which has a plugin for Photomatix.
Tonemapped in HDR Photomatics & make adjustment according to my liking,
Opened image in Photoshop CS4 to make final adjustments. I should redo this one to minimize the ghosting at the rooftops.

I have an eclectic style and technique that I apply in my photography. Basically, I have no set style; I’ll shoot just about anything as long it appeals to my senses. The challenge of photography style, at least in my case, was and still is to create images with emotion and impact.
My philosophy is rather simple as a photographer. I’m always ready to capture the moment, so I always have a camera with me. Sometimes the photograph comes to me, but most of the time, I go to the photograph.
