The Austin, TX Capitol Building is so perfect for HDR’s!  Here is a first..I’ll call it triple vision!  The Rotunda is located at the back of the building and we went down for a few shots.  I enjoyed each of these HDR’s…so why not post em all for a different view.  Maybe you can get the feel of being there?   I like to see how the light varies a bit in each shot…depending on the angle.

I am drawn to this building…not sure how long we will live in Austin, but I will gladly shoot this subject any day!   Its now a challenge to find new ways to shoot it!   I have used a telephoto, wide angle and a fisheye…they all worked great!   I’d love to try a rain storm HDR shot one day!   Now that would be cool!   I have actually never shot in midst of a storm!   Add that to the list!!!  Hope your day is triple the fun!

    Very effective triptych Pete! I’ve shot the middle one before but not the other two. Looks like I’ll have to head down there again with the 10-20mm some time 🙂

    • Dave, thanks! I shot all angles…they all were solid! So the triple effect post was a perfect solution! I’d like to try it with a fisheye at nite! Now that would be cool! I need to rent that lens again! =)
