While in SF I wanted to grab a photo exterior photos of the City Hall. While waiting for the sun to set I took a stroll inside to check out its interior. Wow! Very nice for HDR’ing! They were prepping for a big party and had it all lit up and set for a wonderful evening for a lucky group of people!
From Chinatown in San Francisco, CA…here is a building off the main street with some cool Red Lamps. Not sure if it is still in business, but I found it looking for some alleys. Add in a little selective color to the HDR makes the shot stand out. Chinatown is def an interesting place to walk around.
From San Francisco, CA…the iconic Coit Tower….also known as the Lillian Coit Memorial Tower located on top of Telegraph Hill. Black & White conversion thank to my new fav “Perfect B&W by onOne Software!! Buh-bye NIK!
I have always loved the before and after shots people post on the net. Many non-IR photographers may not know how a IR photo looks directly from the camera. You can see it above! Processing an IR shot is easy…but you need to know how to work some photoshop magic. This is the full version processed shot below. Enjoy! I may post some HDR shots like this soon!
From the great city of San Francisco, CA. I had never seen the City Hall up close in all my visits until recently. Here it is in all of its HDR glory! Definitely worth the visit!! Some info from the web: San Francisco City Hall, re-opened in 1915, in its open space area in the city’s Civic Center, is a Beaux-Arts monument to the City Beautiful movement that epitomized the high-minded American Renaissance of the 1880s to 1917. The structure’s dome is the fifth largest in the world. The present building replaced an earlier City Hall that was completely destroyed during the 1906 earthquake.
