We’re back in the archives today since, although I have loads of images from our Easter trip to Corpus Christi last weekend, I haven’t had a chance to edit any of them yet. Hopefully I’ll get some of them fixed up for next week.
In the meantime, here’s a shot that was taken a year or so ago in the depths of the Texas State Capitol. If memory serves, this was actually a shot I took as a bracketing example during one of my HDR workshops. We do the practical portion of the class down at the Capitol since access is so good and there are so many great HDR-worthly places to shoot. The senate chamber, for example, offers wonderfully bright windows that are great for illustrating cases where you need to bracket wider than your camera’s automatic bracketing will allow.
This particular corridor is in the old part of the building (the dome is right above our heads here) but heads to the new extension. The blue tinge to the door at the very centre of the picture is actually daylight shining in from the extension beyond.
