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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I took this shot from the Jackson Street Bridge overlooking Freedom Parkway, looking west towards the City of Atlanta night skyline. It was a cold and windy night which made me nervous of camera shake despite my tripod, but on top of that the continuous traffic over the bridge would surely turn out a shaky picture…but I think it turned out pretty well. This is an HDR shot using three exposures totaling close to a minute. Let me know what you think in the comments.
