Pittsburgh, PA – Heinz Field (HDR)

Heinz Filed - Fisheye - HDR

NIKON D300, Nikon 10.5 Fisheye, HDR in Photomatix

As a huge Pittsburgh Steelers (National Football League) fan – how can I not take photographs of Heinz Field when I visit Pittsburgh!  I have taken a few of these shots before, but never with a fisheye lens in HDR!    Currently the Steelers are the Champions of the NFL.  The won the Super Bowl by beating the Arizona Cardinals this past year.   The new season is about to start and they might have a chance for another title?  We shall see!

The Steelers are the fifth oldest franchise in the NFL.  Founded July 8, 1933. Originally named the Pittsburgh Pirates, they were part of a 10 team league.  Current teams in existence from this league are the Chicago (Arizona) Cardinals, Green Bay Packers, Chicago Bears and New York Giants.

I set up this shot with my standard tripod, cable release, 5 exposures and post processed in Photomatix.  I also added a Neutral Density Filter via Color Efex Pro 3.0 to add an additional effect to the shot.   The Steelers currently have 6 Super Bowl titles, ties for most ever by any team.  This year could be the “Starirway to Seven”!!  =)

    Six super bowl rings is actually the most of any team in the league. The two closest are the Cowboys and 49ers with five a piece.
