We were leaving Phipps Plaza on Friday night after stocking up on winter clothes at Belk and I got a couple of pictures of the skyline looking west over Lenox Road. There are a lot of great perspectives from Phipps Plaza of nearby Buckhead high rise buildings. Here is how they were shot:
The Swan House – built in 1928 – designed by acclaimed architect Philip Shutze of Heinz, Reid & Adler – located on Andrews Drive in Buckhead – Operated by the Atlanta History Center as a museum since being acquired from the Inman family in 1966.
This is a nine image HDR photograph taken in November.
ISO 200, 90mm, f/18: Processed in SNS-HDR & Lightroom
This morning the fog was thick in Atlanta, and even at 9:30 am it was still hanging low. I was on my way to Decatur on Freedom Parkway and saw the City was still engulfed so I jumped over to the Jackson Street Bridge and caught this shot. You can view what it typically looks like here http://picturesofatlanta.wordpress.com/2012/01/09/hdr-atlanta-skyline/
The picture above was processed using SNS-HDR. I also use Photomatix a lot to process HDR shots, and here is what it came out looking like. I’d be interested to hear which one you prefer. I like the one out of SNS better, it just feels cleaner to me. Let me know what you think.
Looking Northeast from the St Regis Atlanta generates a fabulous perspective of Buckhead, starting out at the street level of the Buckhead Village and growing into the tall buildings that make up the Buckhead Skyline.
I recently had a chance to tour and photograph 4 decorated show homes at the St Regis Atlanta. Residence 1820 was designed by Atlanta interior designer Patricia McLean Interiors. This hallway photo was one of my favorite images to come from the day. I love the richness in the floors and the shadows from the light, this really feels like home to me. You can see my photo tours of these units at www.TheBuckheadBlog.com.
This year I am doing a new 52 week photo challenge on Flickr. The first week’s challenge was to take a photo showing off your town. I really enjoyed getting night shots from the Jackson Street Bridge overlooking Freedom Parkway so I headed back over there during the day and got this shot. It’s an HDR image of 3 shots.
Last night on the way home the sunset was painting the early night’s sky. We pulled over at the Northwest Presbyterian Church on Northside Drive and caught this shot of the Church with a nice pink backdrop.
