Pittsburgh, PA – Heinz Chapel (HDR)

Pittsburgh, the city of three rivers.   The Allegheny, Ohio, and Monongahela.  A favorite spot of mine due to the location of my top sport teams…Steelers, Pirates and Penguins.  I try to visit every year and enjoy photographing this lovely old city.  So many places to see and capture in time.  One of my top spots is the University of Pittsburgh.  You have seen my photos of the Cathedral of Learning….and amazing place!  Just 100 yards away is the stunning Heinz Chapel!   This day I went out with my good friend Dave DiCello and we grabbed quite a few pics this day!!   We stopped in and I took this shot via Fisheye.  I had previously taken a wide angle shots and wanted to get something different.

Its a wonderful spot to see and I am sure it is tough to book for weddings!  Small and lovely!  If you are in Pittsburgh, stop by and enjoy!

    The church itself seems to be very beautiful. Another question is if one likes fish eye photos or HDR photos. Anyway interesting experiment in my eyes.

    Happy blogging and photographing.
