San Antonio, TX – San Fernando Cathedral (HDR)

Blue hour + HDR + Architecture = possible cool shots!   This one is from back during the holidays of the San Fernando Cathedral in downtown San Antonio.   I have only shot the outside…one day I’d like to visit and take a few inside!    I will admit that most of all of my favorite outdoor HDR’s are taken at Sunset, Sunrise or Blue Hour!  Why so?  Light!  The dynamic range is best at these times.  More and more of my photo excursions are now revolving around these times.  Although it is tough to get up early for the AM shots!  But it is worth it!  The things we do to get that great shot!  There should be a been there done that photography list…then we can see what next challenge is next!  Maybe I’ll work on one and start it here!   You all can help!  Look for it soon!  =)
