Austin, Texas – Capitol Building (HDR)

Just one more shot from our Scott Kelby Photo Walk 2010 – downtown Austin walk.  This is the traditional shot everyone must take when visiting Austin.  Its quite tricky in HDR.  It all depends on the time of day and available light.  I finally got a solid one after many attempts.  Nice and bright!  I only shot 8 HDR’s on the walk…this was my favorite.  I used a fisheye to capture as much as the interior section of the dome.   Check out those stairs way up there!  I had no idea they were there!  Wish we can have photo walks all the time!  Shooting with fellow photographers is wonderful!  Enjoy!
