The Georgia Dome – Home of the Atlanta Falcons

I got this HDR shot today of the Georgia Dome where the Atlanta Falcons will be playing the San Francisco 49’ers this Sunday in the 2013 NFC Championship Game.  I am so pumped for this game and hope the Falcons can earn their ticket to the Super Bowl in New Orleans.  I’ll be there and hope you will too!

City of Atlanta Skyline Fogged Over

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/

City of Atlanta Skyline SNS HDR

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.

Atlanta Falcons Defeat the Carolina Panthers 30-28

Today the Atlanta Falcons moved to 4-0 on the season with a win over Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.  We were lucky to be sitting in a suite hosted by 790 the Zone and Star 94.  I got a few pictures, one wide angle HDR shot of the dome, a couple of field goals including the winning field goal with 10 seconds remaining in the game.

 

 

 

Turner Field Home of the Atlanta Braves

A couple of years ago I was lucky enough to go on a helicopter tour of Atlanta.  It was an October day just after a front had moved through so it was crystal clear out, perfect for a helicopter ride.  Here is an overhead picture of Turner Field, home of the Atlanta Braves and also the site of the 1996 Olympic Games.

Martin Luther King Jr Grave Site

This week Henry and I made a visit to the King Center to do some research for his upcoming class project.  Here is a shot of the grave site where Dr Martin Luther King Jr and his wife Coretta Scott King are buried.

HDR Atlanta Skyline

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.
