Big Sky Country

.
Fooling around with HDRs again but this one is different. Usually I shoot handheld and blend three images. This was on a tripod (yes, me!) and made from seven shots, like the big boys do it. It has smoother tonal transitions while keeping the whole light-dark range.

The view is from mid-way down Art Hill in Forest Park, beneath the Art Museum, looking north toward the Grand Lagoon. It was taken with a 17 mm wide angle lens. Note the other photographer in the green shirt working off a tripod in front of me. She was shooting film. Such discipline.


TOMORROW:
bunch of fairies.

It is a nice composed series. I just don't do it anymore. Don't know why. Just don't.

Your photograph is, by the way, excellent.

Oh, Bob, Finnish circling the globe so you can quit your day job and do this all the live-long day. Even your leftovers would be wonderful to see. I just love it.

And I can't dance either, that's why I take photographs. It's amazing the places you can go if you just show up with a camera...
