Austin, Texas – Field of Dreams – HDR

Baseball filed - Rainbow

NIKON D300, Nikon 12-24, HDR in Photomatix

This picture was taken last nite in my local town. A matter of perfect timing.  We had some storms come through Austin the last day or so and the sky was looking good for a late evening shot.  I had planned earlier in the day to hopefully try an HDR of the baseball field.  I wanted to see how it would turn out.  We first went to get yogurt and after finishing drove back to the ball field.  As we pulled up – we looked up and saw the  rainbow!  What timing!  Funny that a few days ago when it was raining and the sun came out – I thought to myself – how would an HDR of a rainbow look?   Now I had my chance! 

I brought my wide angle lens as I wanted to get more of the field in the shot and took a bunch of pics.  This was 5 exposures on a tripod with a cable release.  Post processed in Photomatix.   I like how the rainbow is cut off from the end of the clouds.  If we had some corn fields in the background – it would be a field of dreams.  Build it and they will come!
