Buckhead Lenox Road Skyline

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:

Nikon D800, Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8
ISO 500, 14mm, f/5.6
5 frames 1/10-1/160 sec
Processed in Photomatix Pro and Lightroom

The Intercontinental Buckhead Atlanta Hotel

I love the fountain in the motor court of the Intercontinental Buckhead Atlanta Hotel.  It changes colors from pink, purple, red and green.  With cars going in and out the light stream made for a fun photo.  This was processed in Photomatix using 3 exposures ranging from 13-30 seconds.  View this photo and more Pictures of Atlanta at www.CarsonMatthewsPhotography.com/PicturesofAtlanta

Northwest Presbyterian Church in Atlanta

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.

City of Atlanta Night Skyline HDR

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.
