Water In and Around Atlanta

Over the past 6 weeks I have been taking a photography class at the Showcase School here in Atlanta.  We had to choose a project for the class and I decided to document some of the bodies of water in and around Atlanta.  A few examples that I photographed are the Chattahoochee River, Nancy Creek, Lake Clara Meer, the Pond in Atlantic Station, and the Chastain Park Pond.  Here are some of the photographs from my project:

Midtown Atlanta Skyline over Piedmont Park’s Lake Clara Meer

I have been taking the 103 class at Showcase here in Atlanta and as part of the class we had an ongoing project that was due at the end.  My project was on the bodies of water in Atlanta.  This was the final picture I took, and it is in Piedmont Park overlooking Lake Clara Meer with the Midtown Atlanta skyline in the background.  This is 9 images combined using SNS-HDR.  I think it turned out pretty well.  My teachers critique was that my black point was too high and by reducing it I may be able to bring out more details near the base of the trees in the distance.  Having said that I’m not sure I would change it.  I like the richness of the image and can live with the darks.  Your thoughts are always welcome.

Krispy Kreme National Doughnut Day 2012

This morning Ben and I had breakfast at Krispy Kreme on Ponce De Leon.  We had some hot’n now, chocolate glazed, and a couple of chocolate glazed with sprinkles.  Great way to start off a Friday.  After leaving we learned that it was National Doughnut Day, so Ben asked if we could eat doughnuts for lunch and dinner as well. 🙂

The Varsity

I got this shot of the Varsity, the world’s largest drive-in restaurant located in Midtown Atlanta on a chilly night this week around 10:30pm.
