The amazing, beautiful, breathtaking capitol building of the state of Pennsylvania, Harrisburg, Pa, USA. Image taken on a fabulous and fun group shoot with other ’Bubblers of the Welcome Pennsylvania group on June 6th, 2009. I am so enamored with architecture … the lines … the angles … the fiddly bits … that I may do a whole series just of this one amazing building.
I know our friends around the world occasionally have been approached by the authorities … cops … police … gendarmes … and asked not to take pictures of public places … so that when I was standing on the corner, snapping away and a police car slid up behind me, rolled down its window, and a deep voice boomed out at me … I did a bit of shaking in my boots!!! Turned around and with the sweetest, most innocent look on my face and said … “Pardon me??” The cop inside the car laughed and said, “Hey, if it turns out, can I have a copy???” To which, quick-witted widdle me shrieked, reached into my camera bag, yanked out a business card, and said “YOU BETCHA!!!” HAHAHAH!!!! So I thought I’d better get one of these up here just in case!!!!
Image taken with the Nikon D300 and the 18-200mm vr Nikon lens, UV filter. Shutter 1/500, aperture f/8.0, exposure 0.00, iso 500. Post work includes 4 duplicates of the original hand-held .jpeg at +/- 2.00 in PSCS4, a trip to Photomatix Pro for hdr in .tiff mode, back into PS for conversion back to 8bit then some minor tweaking. This is the first time I’ve left an hdr image LOOKING like an hdr image … I think it worked on this one.
